This is a quick update on Zooomr Mark III launch. As I’ve been posting before the Zooomr re-launch came and went (crash and burned) and Kristopher Take is in the process of getting it going again. They had a few hardware server problems and Zoho came to the rescue to get Zooomr up and going again. Sun Microsystems also came in with a server box on loan for 60 days. Zoli’s Blog has a great recap of all that has happened over the past 12 days.
The fact that it’s two days since Zoho came to the rescue and Zooomr is not up seems to have upset some people. On top of that the Zooomr Blog seems to have problems because of the Zoomr crash and is not providing timely updates of the status. Dedicated users have been glued to the Zooomr Ustream.tv feed and getting updates directly from Kris and Thomas Hawk. Robert Scoble has also been active in the Zooomr IRC chat room and providing support and status updates whenever he can.
There are a few hardware problems that need to be sorted out and Kris doesn’t want to bring Zooomr up just to have it crash again. He has been working long, long hours and doing his best to make sure when Zooomr comes online, it stays online. We (Zooomr users) are behind Kris and Thomas and support them in getting Zooomr back up when they feels it’s ready to come online.
Kris was able to get the static photos back online so blogs that link to these photos will be able to access their pictures again.
We would like to thank the Internet community and especially Zoho and Sun Microsystems for coming forward and lending a big helping hand.
Zooomr will live again!
The Zooomr users have started a Zooomr Mark III Launch wiki and you can see it here.
