Image issues

Hi — there is a major outage at the moment of rubygems, the package manager we use to provision instances of our image service servers.
We’re trying to mitigate it, but at the moment it looks like we’re going to have to ride the issue out and hope that the people at rubygems can fix things quickly.
In the meantime, the vast majority of regularly-accessed images are in the cache and are still serving.
But people won’t be able to upload new images, and some images won’t be displaying if they weren’t already in the cache as of 2 hours or so ago.
We’re really sorry for the inconvenience, and are monitoring the situation with rubygems to fix things as soon as they have a handle on the problem they’re having.
