      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.

  9. I've been short sighted and worn specs since i was a nipper. I also have double vision so have to wear prismatic lenses. A few years back i noticed i was really struggling to read small print to the point i was taking my gogs off to read. This in turn meant i had to close my left eye to stop the double vision. I also had trouble re-focusing when going from looking at the tv and back to a book etc. Optician at the time said that i would need varifocals at some point in the very near future. Had my eyes tested in March and he confirmed my worst fears that i needed varifocals. Having heard good and bad i was a bit dubious, but went ahead. Had the lenses ground as thin as poss otherwise i would look like Mr Magoo! Been wearing them now for about 3 weeks and have to say i'm pretty happy with them. Took me a few days to adjust but i think i've got the measure. It's an individual thing and whats right for one can be wrong for another. Regards Steve
