Rae, I did try to post the pix and when I previewed them they appeared but when i logged back on later the block was on and as you say they want money to share. I'll try another site to see if I can show them.

Cheers Rae, I'll sort out how get the sizes down. I'm much more at home in the workshop than on a keyboard.

Photobucket didn't fail, they got greedy.
Don't know why he changed the post photos were showing fine yesterday.

I am not sure I trust any of them to not get greedy. I don't understand why anyone would run a picture hosting site without making money from it at some point.

Even Yahoo Groups, on which I belong to a number of groups, is failing in the support environment and has ceased development entirely leaving groups like this one with no ongoing support and the service is dreadful.

Groups.io seems to be the place the Yahoo deserters are heading but that is a one-man band set up by the guy who originally created Groups(?) which he subsequently sold to Yahooto make his investment money back. This is the internet of things and people as it moves from novelty idea to normality.

I would expect Imgggbbbngggbbb to go the same way as BotoPhuckem in time.

Cynical, moi?

I suppose it will come Brian, but until then let's make use of it.
I suspect that Google will do something similar with Google maps before long. I had an email from them the other day telling me that based on my usage it would cost me about £200 per annum. I think they got me confused with a developer.  :-\

Well, they will have competition for your money from Apple; an Apple Maps camera van spotted cruising the back streets of downtown Swindon last week so they are obviously doing a iStreetView thingy.

I don't think it's "greedy" and I don't think you're cynical. The fact is that providing a service costs money and someone has to pay for it. Either

1) A benevolent provider out the goodness of their heart;
2) The users of the service;
3) Advertisers;

Most of us don't like number 3 and number one is not a solid business model. That leaves number 2!
Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!

Can't wait for live dash cam footage being stitched together by (Google-owned) Waze, so we can all get a live feed of the road ahead, but 5 miles distant. Really, it won't be long. I'd give it about 5 years - tops.

I may be 100% techie, but the luddite in me is rising up inside. Its possibly revolting...

Agreed on the 'greedy' angle - as an app developer, getting someone to pay for a digital service (something that can't be touched, so of course it should be free!) is like getting blood from a stone. Hence we occasionally fall back on adverts in our apps. Not many of our apps, but it's that or go bust. And its customers that drive us there, believe me - we dislike ads as much as the next person!

Re. imgbb.com:  the interesting bit is that it doesn't fit into any of those 3 categories.
It has no disclaimer on copyright ownership, no address, no phone number, no backup mechanism, and thus no comeback. Rumour - totally unsubstantiated - is it's Russian. Fake news? That's how it starts.  ;D ;D

I would strongly recommend not posting valuable or personal pictures on it. Photos of your latest hugger are fine, but think twice about why there's no login required, no contact, and no 'proper' Ts & Cs.  :'(

I think the rebellion is more to do with the sneaky way it's done rather than the cost. A bit like drug dealers, give the product for free until they are dependant then make em pay.

You missed out the temporarily benevolent developer who does it ad free, for free at point of use and relies on selling it on at some point in the future  8)

Back to the radiator, I cleaned my last one and anticipate this one will get done before long. Last time I got some out, but not enough in my opinion. Other than careful water jet, has any pre-soak or chemical been found to loosen the grot?
