      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.

Spot of the day!

A burgundy Maxi this afternoon in Helston which helped alleviate the deleterious effect that place has on you. The fossilised driver had a look of resigned fate upon his countenance; yet again, that Helston effect.

I'd forgotten - saw a black 66 reg Morgan in Alton last week - can't remember when I last saw one!

Bright-Yellow-Citroen CX. Funny, but until I read that just a moment ago I didn't realise that subconsciously that is actually the car I would love to own!  Here's one courtesy of French illustrateur Thierry Dubois...

BTW, The Maxi. Brother in law had one around 1979. On a good day it had three forward gears.

 

I guess if one of those was third you'd probably just about make it...

On the way to the cinema to see Dunkirk tonight, a Cobra (blue) - which reminded me I also saw a Silver Cobra on the Maidenhead trip - two in one day!

A number of unusual spots this afternoon on the M25:

  • Ford Model T
  • BMW 2002
  • MG TC

Both the Model T and the MG were on transporters, however the BMW was being driven with gusty.

I remember a few years back I once followed a late Model T on a fast A road- it sat at a constant 40mph for a good 5 miles between two villages. I'd have been absolutely terrified driving a near 100 year old car at those speeds, but evidently the old 'Tin Lizzie' was perfectly capable!

This morning on the M40 I saw an immaculate Mitchelin branded Citroen HY van in blue and yellow.

 

On the way home this evening the M40 produced not one, but 3 Triumph Stags, one in Wedgewood blue, the other two in white, all making that lovely V8 burble.

17 plate McLaren 570S at the local BP garage in Buckingham, it looks as though he was on his way to Silverstone Circuit 5 miles up the road. One of the few to stick to the 30 limit out of town!
