      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. A superb book.
  2. It has been reported that this is one of the new "solar powered" tools. Just leave it on the workbench and it will accumulate enough charge to get the job done.
  3. Very nice indeed! Congratulations. It is great to see people's efforts being rewarded, for the effort that goes into their builds.
  4. I'd hazard a guess that it was eaten.
  5. Eh? What parcel? This thread is about biscuits and tea dunking, isn't it? I am slightly amazed at the gingernut biscuits that I have encountered. They are harder than granite and would break your teeth if not dunked. Dipping a brick in tea, then eating that would appear preferable in comparison! I watch something on the idiot-box the other day, linking the Channel Islands with chemical weapons and V1 rockets (delivery, for the use of). It made for interesting viewing.
  6. I can't speak for those who like to climb buildings just to take a selfie (ego?), but speaking as someone who has jumped off of things, you tend to meet people who are particularly focused on doing the job correctly and paying attention to details. The BASE community is a gathering of interesting individuals from all walks of life (business owners feature predominantly here) who appreciate the risks and manage them very well. A different breed are those who jump with wingsuits and "proximity fly" close to the ground. A recent large spate of impacts has yet to deter others however.
  7. The saying (joke?) goes: If someone wanted to give the country an enema, they'd stick the nozzle into Invercargill.
  8. There is still a yearly pilgrimage of bikers who head to Invercargill for the Burt Munro rally. Racing on the sands of the beach where the Indian was tested, is an annual activity for many racers of different types. I can only imagine what Invercargil in the 70's would have been like. A bit bleak?
  9. South Toowoomba misses out (we have Bunnings here too. A better quality of tatt at a cheaper price than mitre 10. Bunnings' snags are legendary...)
  10. mutant gerbil DFS sofas (right, that's all out of the way. Normal programming may resume!)
  11. It is even more entertaining when the sods tiptoe up to your door, "knock" as hard as a butterfly's wing on a flower petal, then slink off into the distance after leaving the infamous "we tried to deliver your package but you weren't home" card. Darby, do you write for Reader's Digest by any chance?
  12. pass infinity and beyond
  13. The latest from Tanmodel seems to indicate that they are focusing on other kits rather than devoting supreme efforts into the Bucc. It certainly is some way down the track, but like most things, the last 5% of the job takes 40% of the time/effort!
  14. If you have spare "mojo" that would assist the Bucc build no end! I will however recommend that you retain as much as possible since you will be using vast quantities to get through your build!! I have all the bits for my build, thanks to Hannants and Kits for Cash. I think it will return to the workbench much later on in the year, by which time I'll have forgotten about adding nose weight! I have retrieved it from the spares box and it is sitting next to me. "Part 103" according to my penciled scribble inside. It even has the arrow inside to denote which end is forwards.
  15. I've been called that a few times... "mon-star" or "disast-star" mostly! PM your full address and I'll fossick around for some packaging for it.
