I have been trying for two days to make a synth and I keep getting a service unavailable message.

Have I missed a big update??

Gary, there's no big update...

I just created this test synth in response to your report and everything worked perfectly for me.

If you ever are having this problem in the future and want to see if it is affecting everyone, check this link: 
http://photosynth.net/explore.aspx?filter=DateDescending&type=Synth

It will show you all the most recent uploaded photosynths from Windows and by the dates as well as refreshing the page every so often you should be able to judge whether there is a widespread service outage or whether it is something local to your machine, network, or territory.
Gary -- that "service unavailable" message is probably coming to you because whoever manages the local network you are on has prevented "unknown" apps like Photosynth from making outbound connections. If you are behind a corporate or educational firewall, ask your IT person to allow outbound connections from the Photosynth App.

Not sure why the snag went away but it did so all good now, thanks for your advice chaps.
