Flickr's tubes are clogged

Flickr is down and this time it's not just getting a massage. While they're moving 20 terabytes across a few thousand miles they're entertaining us all with a coloring contest. Yes, a coloring contest.

I'll bet that results in more than a few entries on this theme:

Update: Flickr's been up for about five minutes and the contest entries are rolling in.

you should have been at the Austin Bloggers Stammtisch* tonight! unless, of course, you had the kids this evening.

*I've decided to use "Stammtisch" as my replacement for "meetup", since I think it best captures what goes on at the Austin Bloggers events.

Yes, this evening my Stammtisch was the one with the kids at my house. Maybe I should have tried dragging them along.

I never knew about Stammtisch in the hobby/club sense described by that DW link. The places I used to run into it, it was just a table reserved for the regulars at the corner Lokal.

Yeah, my high school German teacher tried to start a German-only Stammtisch in the school cafeteria, with predictable results. I've also seen colleges use the word to describe informal German clubs.

Dang, no pro account for me! Hats off to the winners anyway.
