      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. My wife was on the phone for ages the other night. After a while, she offered me the phone and asked "Would you like to speak to my mother?" "Yes" I replied, "But only through a medium".
  2. That's a good idea if you've got the software. I'd like to see the finished results. I'd be very interested if you decided to put some up for sale.
  3. I am sorry to hear about your health scare, however, my best friend was diagnosed with cancer of the kidney last year and underwent a successful procedure at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle to remove it. He has since made a full recovery. On a lighter note, the night before they took him down to theatre, he was handed a menu and asked to make his select for the following day's evening meal. Honestly and by sheer coincidence, one of the options was Steak and Kidney Pie!! He said to the nurse "I'll have that, at least the bugger'll be fresh". I wish you the best of luck with your treatment and I've got everything crossed for you.
  4. As far as I'm aware, no manufacturer has covered this scheme as yet. Hopefully someone like Hannants or Air-Graphics may soon take up the baton. Fingers crossed, next year's 100th anniversary of the RAF may spur them on with this and any other interesting schemes that may come along.
  5. I once took my wife to a wife swapping party. I came home with a lovely petrol driven lawn mower.
  6. That's brilliant.
  7. It doesn't matter a jot what the scale is, it's still a beautifully built model.
  8. That's a great looking Sycamore. When you compare this to the modern day Merlin, it makes you realise just how flimsy these things were.
  9. 1/48 scale??? That is utterly amazing. The level of detail is out of this world. It is beautifully built and finished and nicely displayed. It's a real pleasure to look at and thank you for sharing it.
  10. That church is a stunning. I'd love to go and see it.
  11. A great result for the Lions. As a Englishman with Scottish and Irish Grandmothers (apologies to the Welsh, but I had no say in it!), I would have loved to see the Lions roar. However, I have to agree with Steve, the All Blacks are still the best in the world and always a pleasure to watch. There's a video on YouTube called Living with Lions, where a small film crew followed the Lions on the 1997 tour of South Africa. It mostly focuses on the backroom preparation, but it's well worth a look. What intrigued me the most was the players self discipline. Instead of being told the rules of the tour by the management, the players sat in a room and they alone laid out what was acceptable behaviour on and off the field. A far cry from my rugby touring days, where the only plan seemed to be to get thrown out of every pub we entered. Oh happy days!!!!
  12. I agree with Steve. Definitely a Could Have Should Have. I certainly looks very purposeful and aggressive. Maybe this should be an If Only class.
  13. That's quite a novel idea. I'd like to think that there could be some genuine interest.
  14. What a great looking diorama. It certainly tells a story of the time and in a really believable setting.
  15. Two very aggressive looking aeroplanes indeed. You've made a great job of using the kits paints. Great stuff.
