Image service issues around 18:10

Hi — it looks like the new image service cache went over, which means that the cache is rebuilding, now. We’ve boosted the number of backend image servers to help it do this, and hopefully images should be responding within the next 5-10 minutes.
Sorry about this, obviously we need to increase the size of the image cache server to even bigger than we did recently. That’s something I’ll get on to doing tomorrow, after the current cache server has rebuilt and handled the rest of tonight’s traffic.
I’m just getting notifications from our alert services that images are back online, so that means they should be starting to work again for everybody.
Again, sorry about that wobble — I hope nobody was too seriously inconvenienced by it.
