      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.

"I wonder where TK421 went?" Says the quizzical Stormtrooper

In the movies, did all that body armour ever do any good? Stormtroopers always seemed to go down with one hit no matter where it was.

An excellent question...I have often pondered this myself along with other obvious thoughts such as how well can they see out of all that gear? I always just assumed that each one we saw 'go down' had died, but might be that In some (or many) cases an otherwise fatal wound has been reduced to a severe but treatable injury by the presence of armour.  We rarely see the aftermath of battle in StarWars, so it might be that many of these soldiers, are recovered, given medical attention and returned to service.  This logic might apply especially to clones each of which are genetically and medically identical- for all I know the empire might have huge reserves of spare clone parts and organs specifically reserved for the repair of injured stormtroopers. If this is the case the armour is well justified.  🤔

It was a film made using actors and stuntmen... pyrotechnics were used to simulate blast damage, the guys in the suits were fine, and they added in the blaster pulses later :wicked::tomato:

Just a rumour that I heard about the historical documents known collectively as "Star Wars" being an elaborate hoax :ninja:

Millions of people died when Alderaan was destroyed.  Do you think someone would actually do that just to make a movie?

But I've seen Jimmy Smitts in other things since :hmmm:  The mystery deepens :ninja:

 

We're being rude - nice job on the Stormtrooper, OP... are you sure he's not saying "Sshhhhh!" though? :wicked:

Agreed.  Really good job on the storm trooper! Looks like a very 'clean' flawless build.

I thought it was just me. To me it looks like he's giving us the classic "I'm naughty " look.  Which quite frankly,  makes me uncomfortable.

So that went awry...

 

At any rate, I think the rebels were good shots and knew where to hit them.
