      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. Superb! Also nice to see a Hawg with other graphics than a sharkmouth or porker face on the nose; the Eagle suits it very well.
  2. Riiiight...things have been thinned, de-blocked and cleaned obsessively. Really this is the sort of tiresome work I'd pay one of the local Scout Troop the titular shilling (and, if I was in a particularly generous mood, a sharp cuff round the ear) to undertake for me during Bob-A-Job Week. Having to do it for myself, I find the mind wandering -usually to a number of unsavoury destinations, and sometimes to questioning whether one has always made the right decisions in life...and I think the blue scheme may be a wrong 'un. I mean, look at Joeltc's superb build here -worlds better, yes? TBH, I didn't like much about the '60s, but Heavy Metal Jets were a high spot! Oh yeah -Eduard Brassin at it's non-best: No matter; the ever-wonderful Petra is sorting this out for me. The Eduard Support facility is a model for others to follow... Working on the exhaust for a change over the weekend and may even have something worth posting next week.
  3. UA 098 looks very like it -I have two bottles in a drawer since God knows when, both dried up like the Atacama! It's still a bit iffy right now; I very rarely finish a build in the scheme I have in mind at the get-go. I'm leaning heavily towards the metal at the moment because of this thread...
  4. +1.
  5. Bit late in the day because, being slow on the uptake, I just clocked this! One of the most bogus things in recent TV ads (Nationwide?) is the woman who has to be in her sixties reciting a childhood memory in 'verse' about her Grandmother, who apparently made a ritual of turning a supermarket carrier bag inside out so as not to display the 'wrong' logo in a different shop! Apart from being a tad over-sensitive, in those days Granny would have gone shopping with either an egg-shaped wicker basket on her arm, or one of those deep two-handled bags that looked as though they were made of patchwork leather -those of a 'certain age' will know exactly what I mean! Brand-bearing carrier bags (and, indeed, the shops that provided them) probably weren't even around then! Sort of calls to mind the line by Dr Tyrell in Blade Runner, but with a new and much enhanced sense of chill: "If we gift them with a past, we create a cushion or a pillow for their emotions, and consequently, we can control them better..."
  6. And there is a dose of Nine Inch Nails too...in fact, the weekly music turns are among the best bits! What I'm finding is that where Lynch once laid out his own rules, his style is now quite derivative and you can while away a merry hour playing 'Spot The Rip' (Buñuel, Anger, Kubrick, Roeg...Lynch!). However, it is still unlike anything else on the toob right now and, dammit, I HAVE to keep tuning in! (R.I.P. Miguel Ferrer 1955-2017)
  7. OK...probably best keep a very open mind, especially if you're gonna have to pay for this! I won't spoil it for you, of course, but it has sod all in common with the original two series, and a less than tentative nod to Fire Walk With Me. Very loose and rambling, but worth a go. If you liked Inland Empire, this is series might do it for you...
  8. Very beautiful; I am looking at the Cigognes option from the Eduard kit right now as an alternative to the blue Seine one I was originally planning for the Mirage GB...not sure I can mix the right blue, and the Very Metal Mirage is sooo iconic! If ever there was a bolt of inspiration, it's here.
  9. Any relation...?
  10. R.I.P.; a great talent. Slammed it as Lugosi in Ed Wood. without looking remotely like the original!
  11. Suspending disbelief meself right now! Surely Mr Capaldi was a 'presence' before being utterly wasted therein by very poor scripting...? If The Thick Of It/In The Loop (and lots else besides) aren't ringing any bells, howzabout Christopher Eccleston's (edgiest and best of the current lot, IMO) previous...? And I'm not remotely sleb-driven! Careful there, Sir -some of us are too easily inflamed!
  12. Quite literally...who?
  13. "He's a loony!"
  14. Sounds like a normal evening's activity when I lived in Northamptonshire...
