      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. No apology required, just an observation. Like the thread and who knows I might take the plunge and get one to go with my wingnuts!
  2. WW 2 ?
  3. Grey,grey and a bit more grey underneath!
  4. Wasn't that fussy all those years ago! Times have changed.
  5. Lovely kit, built it years ago. I would recommend any of those frencees by Heller.
  6. Is it that Austria overstretched its resources? Typhoon is a top draw product and not all countries can afford such a beast , as it's not just the purchase cost but the running costs and it seems to me that Austria got it wrong. Maybe Canada could make use of them for point defence and save the Hornets for the rest of it. Might be cheaper than Super Hornet?
  7. What about that big vulnerable scoop underneath? ?
  8. So the aircraft get pooled. Might they not at least be marked up for the squadrons that operate them , even if the pilot on board isn't from that particular unit. As before, esprit de corps.
  9. Any connection with the french Djin helicopter?
  10. Meldrew metamorphosis, common in middle to older aged men. I know!
  11. With the proposed retirement of ASTOR assets based on the Sentinel, would two or three airframes be suitable for 32 (the royal ) squadron accepted that they would require extensive reworking?
  12. Mike! You can't cut the wings off!!
  13. I have been unable to get Hannants on line sinc last Thursday, is it me?
  14. That is a very fair comment Hairy, but the likes of some A26 and P38 pilots should have been dealt with years ago. I am more than happy for keeping it simple keeping it lively and keeping it safe. But I would like to see it in my airspace and not the next county!
