Photobucket down - photos from that site not going to load

Just a FYI,

I'm sure by now some of you have noticed some photos are not loading in threads today.  It appears Photobucket performed server maintenance last night and things did not go well (isn't that usually the case when you mess with a server?).   They have been down most of the morning and it's all over twitter and the internet.  It's not just their images that are down, but their entire website seems to be off line right now.

This should only affect photos that were linked in from photobucket and not photos loaded tot he SMF forum software, so not all images will be affected.  Not as big a deal here, but a lot of other forums only used linked photos from outside services like photobucket.

So, if you are not seeing some images, give it a few hours and try again (and I shudder to think what will happen in all the forums if they have totally screwed up and the links to all those billions of linked images are lost).
