My pictures are now back again. What on earth happened?

Probably a caching issue. This can happen if the server holding the actual images is not in sync with the server feeding the Apache. Should be a rare occurance, but given enough visitors and images it will happen occasionally. It's also possible the thumbnails don't correspond to the real photos, especially immediately after uploading them, because the converter didn't have time to catch up yet.
Normally, it's just a question of waiting a few minutes and it should sort itself out. If not, Steffen can do a force-clean of the cache.

They were photos that I'd uploaded yesterday,or the day before, when I opened my account. They were okay yesterday, then it sounds like what you mentioned could have happened, maybe, then I checked my album again and they were fine again.

Hopefully I won't get too many problems using this service.

Don't worry. I've been here for more than three years by now and so far there were no major issues that lasted longer than a few hours. And everything else Steffen cleaned up.

Probably not a solution to the world's problems. But sorry to have tuned out and glad to be back.
