I Can’t Access Flickr.com

The Intarweb has been very slightly b0rked over the past, oh, 36 hours. Everything works fine, excepting that I can’t access Flickr.com. When I try to visit the site, my browser just churns and churns.

Interestingly, I can see static Flickr images when they’re referenced elsewhere. For example, I can see the little thumbnails in other posts on my home page (like this one).

This wouldn’t be a big deal, except that Flickr widgets on other sites don’t load. So, I wanted to do a few things on the Northern Voice site, but the Flickr widget tries to load in the left sidebar before the main content does. So, the page only loads as far as the title “Photos from Last Year” and then hangs.

I checked in Safari and on Julie’s machine, so it ain’t local to my MacBook. Weird, eh?

Of course, when the service and the access to support for the service live in the same place, I’m kind of pooched on getting help.


  1. It’s not just you. I can access Flickr from Australia, but a mate in Austin, Texas can’t at the moment.

    There seems to be a rather wide-reaching wigginess somewhere on the internets.

  2. Matt: Yeah, I wondered about that too. It may be the case, though I haven’t experienced any other issues.

  3. Random post but your results just came up on a google search. I’m having the same issues (in Knoxville, TN)

  4. I live in Melbourne Australia and I can’t load any page at all from flickr.
