      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. Just started a boat building business in my attic. Sails are going through the roof.
  2. A little boy came downstairs crying late one night. “What’s wrong?” asked his mother. “Do people really come from dust, like they said in church?” he sobbed. “In a way they do,” said his mother. “And when they die they turn back to dust?” “Yes, they do.” The little boy began to cry again. “Well, under my bed there’s someone either coming or going.”
  3. Well thats a bit cheeky!
  4. Well unless UK TV is significantly better than ours, I would suggest that the ads are no better or worse than the stuff that passes as programmes, and the very best TV programmes seldom ascend beyond mediocre.
  5. Took my two dogs for a walk in the park this morning. They suddenly seemed to vanish into thin air, and I am not sure what happened. However, I do have a couple of leads.
  6. Was talking to a chap last night who is into self improvement and motivation. He told me there are no problems, only opportunities. That's great news 'cos it means I have a serious drinking opportunity.
  7. A truck carrying Vicks Vaporub has overturned on the Motorway. Police say there should be no congestion for 24 hours.
  8. My girlfriend thinks I am a stalker. Well, she is not actually my girlfriend yet.
  9. A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that, if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons were probably behind it. The boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed, but asked to see them individually. So the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon. The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?" The boy made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open, wide-eyed. So the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God!!?" Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "WHERE IS GOD!?" The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and hid in his wardrobe. When his older brother found him, he asked, "What happened?" The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time, dude. God is missing and they think WE did it!"
  10. For what it is worth there is no 'well' for the nose gear on an F27. The gear hangs off the front bulkhead, the entire nose cone is cavernous falsework. So as long as you have a bulkhead at the rear of the nose leg it will be correct.
  11. How heavy is a chilli pepper? Give it a weigh, give it a weigh, give it a weigh now.
  12. Well if we are going to give the old music hall routines an airing we better include - "The wife has gone to Italy for a holiday." "Genoa?" "Of course, she's my wife."
  13. Just went into the local liquor store. The assistant said,"Do you need any help?" I said, "Yes, but I decided to come here instead."
  14. Just got back from the funeral of a friend who drowned last week. I got a lot of abuse from the relatives about my floral tribute in the shape a life jacket. But as I told everyone, "It's what he would have wanted.".
  15. Those were the days when software for home entertainment was something you bought at a chemist.
