Breathtakingly piss-poor design in that the text explanation of the issue, in several languages but in grey colour, cannot actually be read against the (same colour) background. Who are the amateurs that 'design' these things? Extraordinary.

have we calibrated our monitor recently

Irrelevant. The same colour is the same colour, contrast-wise, however you calibrate the monitor.

Hmmm, nowadays, I often have trouble in reading text in deezine magazines (so I've stopped getting them  :) ) but I have no problem in reading that black text on the very pale grey background - even without my varifocals on.

You need to check you browser settings or something because it is fine on my screen

Huh?
Isn't a grey strip used precisely to check if your contrast is correct, ie that you can discern all the different shades of grey (not 50, of course), especially the ones at either end?

Yup, you are probably right.  This is what I see (or don't see).

Same 4 me ...

oh and Mr istock "emberMike" - just to let you know - it is peak time for half the world - the world does not revolve around western canada - it is Tuesday smack dab in the work day and deadline time so sorry, you screw your buyers in half the world  - which means I suppose that your buyers in Austral/asia are so few you can afford to alienate them by not considering their "peak time" - otherwise yes Sunday would make sense for downtime - which tells me secondly you are not growing in the part of the world that is doing best financially and is growing fastest. Ominous for istock.

How badly can you run this site I wonder? SS never ever has these issues.

Since this isn't a widely publicized site outage and not very many people read the istock forums anymore, it's worth a note here before widespread panic ensues.

istock will be down today starting at 3:00 MST, just under 1 hour from the time of this posting. The outage should last a couple of hours.

...couple of hours... seems like more  :D

It's been about 4 hours ... so far.

Even if they get it back up in less than 24 hours, how many days before it will actually be usable? Oh, I'm being too pessimistic, aren't I?

Oh great, they moved the bottom menu to the left now. What's gonna be next now, back to the top right again?  ???

I think I have never seen a web site where the cart icon is located on the bottom right. Who designed this [email protected]?

I guess I was too pessimistic. Just 4 hours, and it seems to be working ok (a bit sluggish). But I'm confident some problems will show up.

It's weird to see file prices in $, though.

I have logged in, and the sales were not too bad for a day like this.

They seem to be using Twitter to debug problems, so that's probably the best place to post issues.

Apparently there's a problem with the shopping cart not working unless you add the EL option. Sounds good to me.  ;)
