Er, the photos are back. (Any absence on my part is strictly related to my own laziness at not posting…)
The uploading of photographs has been resolved. (Moved to our other server altogether.)
Only bad thing about the new server is that my “neighbors” are some of the most popular bloggers in the blogosphere – and when they’re sucking up the bandwidth, there’s a risk that my site will go down. Hoping that’s not the case, but one cannot control their neighbors.
