After an extended outage of almost a day or more, Tumblr is finally back up and kicking. The site though is not fully functional and seems to be coming up gradually.
So if you haven’t had a chance to post cute kitty pictures in the past 24 hours, you will get to do it pretty soon. You might also want to follow @tumblr on Twitter to get the latest updates from them.
The recovering database cluster is online and healthy. We’re incrementally opening up access to blogs while monitoring performance. (@tumblr on Twitter)
