      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. For the bike: Fuel tank for the 125cc bike... after finding it has split and lost nearly £7 of fuel from it. £10 to fill the tank 428-120 pitch chain 15t front sprocket 39t rear sprocket Matte Black Paint/Matte Red Paint Chain breaker & lube
  2. Unfortunately nothing model related.... But as soon as it arrives as its currently on order, Sigma 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lens, as a replacement for the Sigma 120-400.
  3. I wondered for a while now how long it would take for photobucket to pull something like this in all honesty. Years ago it used to be £2.99pm for Unlimited Bandwith/Storage, that then changed to £29.99pm now its up to the price they are expecting people to pay now. The day they changed it to £29.99 I remember recieving an e-mail saying that the payment had been declined, and only after raising it with a customer service agent did I get a e-mail saying it had gone up by £27.00, needless to say I cancelled the subscription straight away as they had to give 30 days notice minumum at the time before increasing. I think its time to pull everything from photobucket now and finally say goodbye to them!
  4. Stay away from the cheap jobbies on ebay that's for sure, I'm speaking from experience as the company I'm working for bought three as a tester... They where a major pita to set up, as instead of setting them up via usb, you had to text the configuration to them, needless to say the Battery life was crap even on the minimum reporting setting. With a lot of the trackers they need to be hardwired ideally for the insurance, and I would say 99% of them you need to manually connect/splice the connecting wires from the tracker to the ignition/obd/can etc to get them to read properly. I only know this as we have 9 vehicles in work with trackers from a Lithuanian company based just outside Vilnius, and for each of the vehicles it took just over an hour to connect the corresponding wires to the tracker, then another couple of hours getting all of the settings correctly set up so that the RPM/Harsh Braking/Harsh Acceleration/G Sensors/Ignition etc work, that is something that the tracking platform don't offer, the correct settings for each of them so you have to spend the time setting each up then testing each parameter! (its an absolute nightmare at times trust me as its part of my job!) On the other hand you can get Personal trackers i.e a small unit which is around 7cm x 2.5cm x 1cm (roughly), with an internal battery which if reporting Once every 24hours when not in motion and every 10 seconds in Motion then the battery lasts roughly two weeks, but if the car doesn't move then it'll last a lot longer... Further to this though you have get a Hard Wired kit which is basically four wires, two to the battery, one to an earth and one to the ignition, and then as long as it is set up correctly via the data cable "m" it is a lot less work to setup and install. I have one of these on my Motorbike with the Hard wired kit & I can honestly say it definitely helps. For instance when I went to the Southport Airshow last year, I left the bike at the Carousel which is were all the bikers meet, for the two days it was there besides from being at the b&b of an evening it alerted me if the bike was moved, as well as if it was stolen I could track the location down to roughly 8 foot. One think you will need to factor in though is, the cost of the sim card/tracking platform plan's, some can be quite expensive per month (over £50). I'll see if I can get a list of platforms together plus ideal trackers for you. Sorry for the long post aswell!.
  5. Congratulations to you both!
  6. I still have the original Album that was released somewhere, "Who Needs Guitars Anyway". Out of all the tracks they released though I have to admit that these two spent a lot of time on repeat: Alice Deejay - Will I Ever https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_3i5LdMqlA Alice Deejay - Who Needs Guitars Anyway? (used to be able to play this on the keyboard) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCgytmf-5zo
  7. Today on the run into work: Lotus Carlton H Reg Dutton Phaeton Darrian T90 (road test) Gilera CX125 Suzuki RG125 Gamma Ducati 748.
  8. I'm sorry to hear of your loss, we lost Loki in 2011 and miss him every day. I originally thought that when I read a bit of the book, but the film is one of those that it is definitely worth the watch, yes its sad at parts, but the last part of the film more than makes up for it, its a heartwarming film.
  9. Laurie, You could try Irfanview, its a free app but usually if a jpg is in the wrong format, it'll prompt you and then display the image so you can save it.
  10. How about a : 1/144 Cri-Cri 1/144 Airtruk
  11. Had this one on repeat the past few days: Also this cover of Bohemian Rhapsody by Pentatonix

  13. @paulj Perhaps try this: Press the bottom right square button while in the contact and it gives you the options ( deleting, sharing, editing and printing) Edit... The single Icon in the first screenshot next to the star Icon should be contacts.
  14. I'm using a Samsung at the moment so hopefully this may help in some way: Go to contacts, tap on the name, click on more in the top left and it should show delete, link contacts or share contact I know if I long press on a contact a small checkbox appears and then at the top under the clock it says share or delete. http://www.wikihow.com/Delete-an-Android-Contact Hopefully it'll help in some way
