      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. Ditto - excellent movie, well worth seeing. I thought it started a bit slowly, but it really picked up. It isn't a conventional war movie and it told on differently compressed timelines - however, it is easy to pick this up and speaking with my non-military historian wife and daughter, they both basically 'got' what was going on. Would have loved a full-blown performance of Nimrod over the end credits though! That would have started the tears flowing! Spitfires were excellent and my old boss, Steve Hinton, was one of the pilots. I was impressed by the large scale Heinkel model - fooled me, even though I KNEW there aren't any flying Heinkels left.
  2. The carrier USS George HW Bush is to visit Portsmouth starting Thursday: http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/our-region/portsmouth/american-aircraft-carrier-set-to-visit-portsmouth-1-8062104
  3. That's disappointing - I was thinking of buying a set of those decals, but maybe not now!
  4. Didn't they try pooling in the Sixties, and gave it up a few years later because of the loss of morale and esprit de corps? That was The Bean Counters' idea as well.....
  5. Lovely topside shot of the B-2.
  6. In Portland, make sure to visit Powell's City of Books - claimed to be the world's largest bookstore and I don't doubt it! Stocked with both new and used books, it is an amazing place if you like books - within their military books room, they even have a whole section dedicated to British Military Aviation books...........and Luftwaffe, USAF, etc.., etc., etc......
  7. Having just been to the Evergreen Museum in McMinnville, I can HIGHLY recommend it! Also, there is a waterslide park on the property for the rest of the family to enjoy while you are goggling the Spruce Goose - the slides begin INSIDE a 747....! So that might buy you another aviation museum visit.....
  8. No, France and Germany will agree to build a Dassault designed NG fighter, otherwise, the Germans will find themselves on their own.......
  9. That's what the footage seems to indicate - upside down, no 'skid marks', all horizontal surfaces there. Can a pilot please explain how an aircraft such as this gets into an inverted flat spin?
  10. I bought a Monogram B-36 in Santa Rosa, CA, in 1990 and took it to the UK with me when I moved back in 1991. It was a pain to pack, given it's size..... When I emigrated for good in 1993, it made the trip to Arizona with me, one of the few kits I kept. So it has been well travelled. And it still isn't built......
  11. Didn't I read somewhere that there were supposed to be 12 Type 26 originally, but 4 were cut and 6 or 8 'cheap' multipurpose frigates were going to be substituted to get hull numbers up a bit?
  12. So we all now know about the latest Photobucket shooting-themselves-in-the-foot policy. The question is - is there a simple, quick and easy way to move all my hundreds of photos in PB to Flickr, or some other hosting service?
  13. Enamels, but doesn't affect acrylics, presumably?
