    Performance Update

    Some users of may have experienced delays over the
    last few days.

    The problem - which has now been resolved - came from outside
    PhotoPoint in the form of an attempted "denial of service"
    attack, similar to those launched against eBay, Amazon and Yahoo!
    in recent months. In such attacks, unknown persons (for unknown
    reasons!) attempt to flood a site with frivolous service
    requests, solely for the purpose of slowing site performance.

    For those who were affected by this problem, we apologize. Rest
    assured, however, that even in such circumstances, your photos
    were never at risk. In addition, we have taken measures to
    identify the source of the attacks, and to prevent any future
