      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.

  1. This morning on the M40 I saw an immaculate Mitchelin branded Citroen HY van in blue and yellow. On the way home this evening the M40 produced not one, but 3 Triumph Stags, one in Wedgewood blue, the other two in white, all making that lovely V8 burble. Karl
  2. A number of unusual spots this afternoon on the M25: Ford Model T BMW 2002 MG TC Both the Model T and the MG were on transporters, however the BMW was being driven with gusty. Karl
  3. Also spotted an excellent case of Karma on the M25 this afternoon. Woman driving for 3 junctions, all the while talking away animatedly on her mobile phone, held in her hand, barely focussing on her driving. I gave her my best Paddington Bear stare as I repeatedly passed her in the traffic, to no effect. Then just after the M4 junction, still chatting away, I watched her drift into the back of a 10 ton lorry, and crunch the front of her MPV, not that the the lorry noticed, as he just drove off. She wasn't hurt, but the look on her face was a picture. Karl
  4. 70s flashback this afternoon on the M40, brown Austin Maxi on the back of a recovery truck. All so familiar...... Karl
  5. Waiting to pull out of the estate this morning, watched a lovely pale metallic green Citroen DS waft past. I'd love to own a DS, one of my all time favourite cars. Karl
  6. Guessing you probably weren't on the A30 in Staines with a caravan, unless you have very low holiday expectations! On the way in to work this morning I saw the ultimate Yorkshire car, no not a Jowett, a Volkswagen E-up! I kid you not! Did no one in VW's marketing department say that out loud! Also an early Porsche 911 and a Mercedes SL 'panzerwagen'. Karl
  7. Despite it being Monday, the glorious weather brought out some equally glorious classics. The A30 served up a rather tatty Citroen 2CV, and in sharp contrast a pristine Fiat 124 Spyder, in white with Matt black bonnet and boot lid. No to be outdone, the M25 saw a tidy, but slightly careworn Jaguar Mk1 saloon in black on a trailer. Karl
  8. I only nipped out briefly today as trying to work on my Triumph Herald, however, saw a very tidy, white MkIII Capri, looking totally stock, and all the better for it. Karl
  9. The traffic on M25 yielded an immaculate pagoda roofed Mercedes SL and somewhat less pristine Lancia Aurelia. The Aurelia was little more than a shell on the back of a recovery truck. Karl
  10. A Bedford CA van on the M25 this evening. Very smart in a coffee colour. Karl
  11. Crawling around the M25 this afternoon I spotted a very smart black Citroen Traction Avant, and then later on the M40 an immaculate BRG TR6 pooling along and a then a Jaguar XK150 on a car transporter. Karl
  12. Saw an immaculate Lancia Montecarlo today in Banbury, and a somewhat more care worn MG Maestro. Both within 300 yards of each other. Karl
  13. BBMF Lancaster and Spitfire flew over this afternoon heading north west. Karl
  14. McLaren MP4 in bright yellow on a trailer at J10 M40 this morning, and then on my way back into Banbury 2 Austin-Healey 3000s in Adderbury, and a lovely red and black Austin A40 in Banbury itself. Karl
  15. McLaren MP4 development car on the M25 this morning. It was wrapped in the disruptive black and white 'camo' that car manufacturers love. You get loads of Jaguars, Aston Martins and Range Rovers around Banbury in the full came wrap. it just makes you more likely to look in my opinion. Also a lovely Volvo P1800, also on the M25 this morning. Karl
