      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. Photo taken yesterday at RAF Northolt ‘Norfest 2017’. Shows a nice comparison between the bronze, NATO and olive greens. I used to bundle around in a Lightweight Landy, and the one in the photo is pretty much the exact colour I remember. I had a tin of NATO IRR green paint for ‘touch-ups’ (handy for when some bright spark reverses into a wall in his own front garden). Mart
  2. It’s always been my understanding that this song was about the ‘Able Archer 83’ NATO exercise? Mart
  3. Nope, but how about some Banjo Thrash? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7cY5hwmvX0 Mart
  4. It could prove problematic. Dennis the goldfish is well known for playing the drums barechested in nothing but a floral pair of baggy Bermuda shorts. I’ve not known him to wear a t-shirt since that debacle back in the early nineties during the ‘Gods of Grind’ tour, involving a semi-naked groupie and a flaming blue curacao, vodka, and 151 rum cocktail. He was banned from playing the London Astoria ever again…. I well remember him ‘flipping the flipper’, and maniacally laughing that day when he found out they’d knocked down the Astoria to make way for Crossrail (which is quite an impressively long grudge, considering he’s only supposed to have a three second memory). Mart
  5. Unfortunately ‘Mortification of the Flesh’ is probably already taken by some Scandinavian Viking heavy metal band. So I’ve had a word with the lads* and we have decided to rename ourselves ‘Yelling at urinator.’ We will start with a fusion of psychobilly death metal and Gregorian chant. Mart *The goldfish, myself, next doors’ cat, and several Japanese robot model kits.
  6. Oh yeah! Mart
  7. Ooh! Nice one mate. Ideal for Sci-Fi display stands. Mart
  8. Fatal air accidents in Britain 1786 - 1939. http://www.rcawsey.co.uk/Accindex.htm Sobering indeed. Mart
  9. I'm going to get T-shirts printed with those lines. Mart
  10. OO OO OO OO Mysterons……. On a side note, Mrs Lotus knew Charles Gray quite well, as he used to drink in her local pub in South Kensington. Mart
  11. ^This. Just mind out to keep the blade nice and straight, or it will start to slightly wander up the tube. I’ve found it best to do this on a cutting mat rather than a hard surface as the mat grips the tube slightly giving a bit more accuracy. The rolling effect of the blade may ‘mushroom’ the end of your tube giving you a tiny lip that you will have to sand off. ^That. A thin cutting disc on a Dremel can work as well for cutting small tube. I stick the tube in a pin vise to make it easier to handle. Mart
  12. Something like these? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01LSEI7U6/ The base is about 3.5x3” and has a number of holes to allow you add more than one model to it. You’ll need to buy a couple for the extra uprights, but at that price it won’t break the bank. Mart
  13. Well, I won’t delete my images on my PB account as others have said that you can still see the blocked images by right clicking them and opening in a new tab. Pain in the bottom really, as I’ve been quite happy with PB since 2008 rarely having problems other than taking a while to upload photos on occasion. Just started on Imgur, just to trial it out. So far so good with regards uploading stuff. Stupidly simple by just dragging photos from my pictures folder straight onto the open Imgur webpage! Testing, testing 1 2 3… Job's a good'un Mart
  14. "I gazed at his magnificence, my vision completely filled with his glorious girth. All around me was flesh and smiling flies. Within his bulk I spied lesser minions, suckling on his leaking entrails. At his feet pools of pus and other bodily fluids gathered, in which his children splashed and played with glee. It was a blessing to behold such glory and joy." Papa Nurgle is pleased with your devotion Will……
