Digitalrailroad.net will shut down in next 24 hours?
this is a DRR note to their members (including me!)
Digital Railroad Suspending Operations – Added Oct. 28, 2008
To our valued Members:
We’re sorry to inform you that Digital Railroad (DRR) has shut down.
On October 15th we reported that the company had reduced its staff and was aggressively pursuing additional financing and/or a strategic partner. Unfortunately, those efforts were unsuccessful. Therefore Digital Railroad has been forced to suspend all operations.
This archive may only be accessible for the next 24 hours.
Digital Railroad has attracted a loyal set of members. Thank you for allowing us to serve the photographic community these past few years.
All questions pertaining to claims should be addressed to:
Digital Railroad, Inc.
c/o Diablo Management Group
1452 N. Vasco Road, #301
Livermore, CA 94551
PS: Update 31.10.2008
My DRR.net/borutpeterlin account is still running, although it’s so slow it’s practically useless.
Only good thing is that sites that offer hosting for Hi-Res images are fighting for us, former DRR members, offering discounts. We’ll see what I will decide. For now, I’m lingering towards a decision to buy really posh portfolio site from aphotofolio.com and use http://www.me.com/gallery for distribution of images. I am trying out other services like photoshelter, smugmug, http://www.sitewelder.com/, newscom.com and others. I’ll let you know in a week time or so.
