      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.

They're EVIL. ;):D

The last couple of days I've bought  a couple of Airfix Wildcats, a F4F-4 off our version of Amazon, namely Mighty Ape, good price of course & after reading "The Cactus Airforce", keen to do the Guadalcanal version , plus the Airfix Wildcat starter set from Jadlam via our local auction site, also a killer deal, same price as the standard kit, & both less than NZ$20.00 including post, thats good for us. :)

I also stumped up for a Modeldecal #115, from Aus via ebay, not such a killer deal but try searching for these & find how many you come up with.  &, delivered yesterday from Abebooks was Ian Thirsk's, "DH Mosquito, the illustrated history vol 2", an important book to me as on page 236 is a photo of my uncle's aircraft taking off on the mission from which he & his pilot did not return.

Yep just read the change in use. I won't be giving them any money after having suffered such appalling slow service putting up with so many pop up adverts.

 

I just haven't got the time to sit redirecting photos from old threads though. Pity. I liked looking back at them.

Luckily my B-29 album on Photobugger only had 3 images in it so I swapped it to another host.

I've ordered a six bladed razor, thereby giving me five more chances to cut myself.

I can make a complete mess of my face with one blade, I'll need a blood transfusion with six.

Nah, it'll be too busy clogging with whiskers to actually cut you. Imho, 3 was a good number to stop at.

Are you trying to make us five bladers feel inadequate?

Incidentally, I had my first five blade shave yesterday. I was a pitiful four blader before then.

 

So, are we in for a user-name change? 'Clean-shaven' perhaps or 'The Artist Formerly Known as Beard', or 'Smooth as a babies b...' maybe not.

That horrible feeling when you know you've just nicked your skin, especially under the septum.

Oh, nearly forgot; my latest purchase, a pair of Regatta walking shoes and a fishing reel. Both from Go Outdoors with massive discounts. Picked up my model purchases from sorting office and had one delivered today. All in differing boxes.

(For those interested in the cardboard boxes they came in to establish what type they were PM me soonest as they will be flattened).

My latest purchase is also shoes, a pair of Clarks' suede lace-up boots and a pair of Clarks' suede Chelsea boots.

New bow for the lad and a new set of stabilisers for me.

Ouch, that was expensive.

Wales Archery has a lot to answer for!

I'm out of 'likes' again. 

 

I feel that there will be derision and persecution. But I bought a 32 year old (1985) Volvo 240GL (2,3 litre).

 

Here she is, including sprained left bonnet hinge:

This is my third 200 series Volvo. I realise that I'm in a minority (beyond Sweden and maybe North America), that just adore these indestructible, boxy, childhood drawing cars.

 

My second one here in Oz genuinely saved Mrs. T's life when 'hoons' as they're called here, 'T-boned' her (also local language). If she had been in anything weaker, she really wouldn't be with us.

 

These bricks/tanks of cars have really grown on me. They're becoming very rare here (and maybe in the U.K.), and the prices for good ones are just beginning to go a little ballistic. This is a good one that just needs a bonnet hinge. Solid as a rock.

 

They're not as dull as they look. As Classic rally/drift cars they're rather marvellous. A turbo is easily fitted.

 

I have a new bonnet (hood) hinge and release cable. Everything else, including air conditioning and auto gearbox with overdrive, works. Very happy. Drives beautifully.

 

Trips to modelling shows and the seaside next :).

 

Best regards

TonyT

Personally, I think that's great (I avoided saying “ it's grrrrreeeeaaaat”, oh damn I didn't). I've been considering a similar move from my Skoda Octavia. It's nice to have all the up-to-the-minute gadgety bits, but when they go wrong…. :crying:

One bottle of Alcad 2 White primer / filler.

In a plastic bottle I may add, at least I can see if it is mixed OK.
