      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.

  5. Wow Trevor they must have moved the German Underground Hospital & Lavender Farm. Sure you were in Jersey. German Underground Hospital incorrectly called the war tunnels. It was solely built as a Hospital. There was was not any war in Jersey. Actually as Architects we were involved in the original restoration of the hospital which was set out as a hospital with beds. Since then it has been commercialised and wrecked.

  7. Why am I called an obsessed member when I am normal
  8. What Are Langoustines? They taste as no other shell fish. Reason they are so expensive. Saturday at home it will be Langoustine Trout and Cranachon. Live past glories. "Langoustines are similar in appearance to crayfish, but differ in that they grow in saltwater seas and oceans, whereas crayfish breed in freshwater rivers and lakes. The Latin name of langoustines is Nephrops norvegicus, and they’re actually a relative of the lobster, with which we’re all familiar. Langoustines are smaller than lobster, however, growing in size to a maximum of only around 10 inches. Their shells are a light shade of orange and, unlike lobsters’ shells, they don’t change color when they are cooked. The smaller langoustines caught are particularly prized for the sweet meat found in their tails, which you might see being advertised as “scampi” on restaurant menus. The larger specimens might not be quite as tasty, but they do offer up more meat from the body and claws. You might also see langoustines being sold as Dublin Bay prawns or Norway lobster."
  9. PS. Just jumped into a bucket of water to find how an ordinary shortbread feels when dunked. Found it rather wet.
  10. Oh no hoppie does this mean the end of this rant ? Is this the end of the largest rant in the history of Brit Mods. What is left for tomorrow. Just radishes & Ginsters I suppose.
  11. Talking of Scotland as I can being a Stewart best of both worlds born in England. Grandfather one Glasgow the other a Shetlander. Now go to the old waiting room on the small pier on Loch Linnhe in Fort William. It now converted to a restaurant. Look at the menu. I had straight form the Loch that day Longustine (pronounced Long-goo-steen), followed by fresh that day Trout. To finish a superb experience a Cranachan. For the Lowlanders oatmeal raspberries (Scotland's best fruit) cream and a touch or two or even three of whisky. This is what is called true heaven. Now drift a mile or so south down Loch Linnhe and you will come to a manor house. This was the residence of the Clan Chief of the Stewart Clan. Now urrrgggg a hotel. But stayed there and wore my kilt at dinner. That is living. Laurie
