The header image for this blog suddenly disappeared a short while ago. Of course, I can’t find where on earth I have a copy of the image on my local hard drive so I’ve spent the last 1/2 hour or so trying to find it. Finally I decided to check to see if anyone had reported problems.
Sure enough, there is a problem with broken images. According to that post thread:
Amazon’s S3 Service is down which is causing some image serving problems on WordPress.com.
According to the Amazon Web Services health page, they’re still trying to fix problems with Amazon Simple Storage Service (EU) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (US). Their latest status is “We are continuing to pursue corrective action”. I’m guessing it’s going to be awhile.
So, if you don’t see a header image, you know why.
