Flickr is having a massage

That is what the Flickr site says when they are having technical issues. Like right now, for example. And the following message on the Flickr weblog is even more fun…

Flickr will be down for a (few) moment(s)

We’re doing some database maintenance. It will be back online within 30 minutes.

UPDATE1: Unless it takes longer, in which case it won’t be back online within 30 minutes, but rather will be back online after a longer period of time (greater number of minutes).”
