      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

      Hi Carl, I'm sorry I can't help, but I don't think that many members look at the status updates, so you may have more luck if you posted this request in 'chat'.

      I wish you luck - Gorby

  6. I won! I have defeated the evil Npower!

    After five months of writing angry letters and dozens of incredibly frustrating phones calls, Ofgem have awarded my dad £3,233.60 - due to over-charging and £75 by way of an apology.

    Today is a good day.

  14. My greatest achievement as a father so far: I've taught my twenty-one-month-old to exclaim "By Jove!" Next: introducing him to pink gins.

      My dear Mr. P,

       

      this is a fantastic achievement many parents should try and emulate. If you have to swear, or use expletives if the situation commands, do it the English way.

      They have a way to make the worst insult sound so mundane. So much better than "cold steel", "blood'n guts", etc.

      Well done old chap!

      Now I am sure that even under Trump's presidency bowler hats must be available in the US of A. Get your son one, and while you are at it, get another one for you.

      Taking your son to school in that attire will sure be remembered for a long, long time.

      Anyway, be proud of yourself. And this is coming from a Frenchman who does not eat garlic and does not particularly like wine, red or white... But pink gins are just fine.

      That PC is some fine work... with our first she picked up a habit my ex wife and I would have rathered we avoided... especially while laura couldn't find what she wanted in Waitrose, Q small angel of a 20 month old child "what's wrong mummy" mummy: "I can't find your yogurts!" Small beautiful daughter: "oh... (drops head) FFS" (forum rules do not permit me using anything but the abbreviation). She is a sharpe cookie and, as we found out, a very quick learner! 

       

      Looking Ng forward to the pic of him with his pink Gin :)

      Well done PC!

      If you want to extend his 'toff' vocabulary a simple trick is to just use single letters...

      "A S" - I understand your point

      "S A" - that's interesting.

      Rob your story reminded me of one of my favourite, slightly rude, ads along a similar vain. Less sensitive members can find it here. :D

  17. There is a line of huge storms passing about 10-15km west of us. I've just been outside listening to the thunder and it's continuous, I imagine it must be like listening to bombing or an artillery barrage. The power of nature is awesome.

      Huh. Big storm here this morning so went down to see if Mols was trembling in her bed and got that sleepy 'What do you want boss?' reaction. She's obviously grown up (except for hot air Balloons!) :)

      Those was a French storms you had yesterday, they built up over Brest and drifted across the Chanel. You can follow storms on www.LightningMaps.org if you're interested. We follow them because we don't like leaving the horses out in fields surrounded by trees when there are heavy storms around, fortunately most of them seem to pass us by.

      Ah, French storms, les best! Glad they passed you by though - don't scare the horses! :)
