My heartfelt thanks to everyone who is pitching in to help us recover lost photos. We couldn't do it without you. We still have about 19K photos missing, but we are reclaiming about 1,000 per day thanks to everyone's help.
Some of the old images got overwritten with a "Polaroid" looking image. For obvious reasons, this looks bad. Unfortunately the cache at Amazon Web Services lasts 24 hours, so when you link or upload a good image, the cached "Polaroid" will stick around for a day. Don't worry about it. Your freshly uploaded image will appear....tomorrow.
