      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. whilst yodelling in Urdu
  2. Quick search on the internet revealed this. I know it's Wikipedia, so be advised. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_aircraft_of_the_Royal_Air_Force From that, it doesn't appear any were impressed. I will hunt out my old copy of Squadrons of the RAF and see if any are mentioned in the index, unless someone has their copy to hand? Trevor
  3. What! In these wellies?
  4. Oh look. A squirrel!
  5. This reference will be worth a look. It covers more than the Mk.I but it seems to give a good overview http://www.boxartden.com/gallery/index.php/Profiles/Camoflage-Markings/01-Supermarine-Spitfire Ditto this... http://www.boxartden.com/gallery/index.php/Profiles/Aircraft-Profiles/Britain/WW2/Supermarine-Spitfire-I-II Both come from Box Art Den, which is in itself well worth having a ferret around. Trevor
  6. This seems to confirm the bulges were there at the time... http://www.spitfireperformance.com/spitfire-21.html I'm now off to see N3200 in her autobiography! Trevor

  12. It's albatross flavour apparently busnproplinerfan - naughty step now!
  13. An Airfix Vulcan bought for me by my dad before he died nearly 20 years ago. I'll never build it. Other than that, a Monogram 1/48 Hind I bought in Florida in 1989. That's about 20% built. Trevor
  14. First off, sorry to hear about the family loss. Please accept my condolences. Glad to see you back in harness whittling the plastic. Now then the 'honey-do' list. Between you, me and the gate post, never rattle through the chores, otherwise Herself will find ways to fill the void with more tasks. My tactic is to give off an air of well meaning incompetence. Keep expectations low and then under deliver. Trevor
