Anyone else having trouble with Photobucket?

I'm trying to log on, and to upload some new pics, but can't get the site to work to save my life.

It's a bit slow at first, while waiting for the ad(s) to pop up.

Finally, looks like I get logged in, but can't get Libraries or Upload to respond, and I get a maddening blank page with a message "This page can't be displayed".

I can go in through Google to see various images from their listings, but for some reason, Photobucket doesn't like me today.

I even got rid of my cookies, and ran anti-spyware cleanup, just in case that was an issue.

A pity, since I was going to upload a couple of images of a 1/600th scale Komet I modified, to make it look a bit more like the real aircraft. Unpainted, but filed the wings a lot, in order to get them to the proper shape. Need to do some more filing, on the rest of the staffel, but pretty pleased how it turned out.

Hope TMP 4.0 will let us upload images directly.

Slow but working for me.

There was a message Monday when I visited that there had been a denial of service attack that was causing major problems.

They went into maintenance mode for a few hours after that.

Yea, I thought that might be part of the problem.

Thanks for the note.

Finally got it to work tonight, but it was a struggle.

Much more so than usual.

I had so many problems dealing with Photobucket (slow, photos disappearing)that now I deal use Flickr instead.

It happens to all of them in the end. The get malicious attacks. Security must be a nightmare. I use Imageshack as originally recommended by TMP. A year or two ago they got slaughtered and did not handle the communications terribly well, but eventually I got most my pics back.
