This is amusing.

SmugMug has been slowly disentangling from Yahoo over the last few months, and they have planned downtime coming up in a few weeks to finish migrating a gazillion photos and videos from Yahoo's datacenter to AWS.

The funny part: They're doing a photo contest where you print out the maintenance notice and "take your photo of the little panda on an adventure somewhere," then post it after the site comes back.

@kelsonv I was so happy to be able to ditch the Yahoo login for Flickr. Maybe I can figure something out for the panda.

@artilectzed Yeah, that was a nice change! Thinking I might do something for the panda also. I used to do three weekly photo challenges for groups in Flickr, Instagram and WordPress, but sort of got away from them. It'll be fun to try a themed challenge again.
