      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. of lotion to fix
  2. Insurance companies can obtain information post crash by analysing the car's on board telemetry. I know for certain BMW's onboard computers log your driving, even to the extent of knowing if you kerbed the car at some point. I'm sure other manufacturers do the same. My car has lane awareness sensors. The day I bought it and drove down the M2, it bleeped every time I changed lanes. The previous drivers didn't keep it in lane*. The computers analyse your driving. Ever since then there has never been a sound from the sensors - it knows if I cross a white line, it is intentional. Therein lies a problem. If I drifted off to sleep, it would no longer warn me. *Not surprising. It has electric power steering, which is very sensitive, and requires your full concentration, or it's in the next street.
  3. everywhere - Nurse! The screens!
  4. ....bet they bottle it!
  5. Glad I picked up a Revell issue for £85 last year.

  8. I know a gentleman with an Airfix Maxi. He will part with it for a sensible sum if anyone is interested.

  13. I have a Pyro Avro Triplane, a Revell Ford Consul Mk2, a bagged FROG Seafury, a boxed US market Airfix Ford Zodiac Mk3, all in the stash; and most recently built, a Kleeware Stinson Trimotor, from 1958.
  14. Oldest kit as in age of kit, or how long it's been in the stash?
  15. When we get out of the ECHR, we can press for the birch and the stocks.
