As you can see I somehow lost my Dart/Mule logo that you made for me.

I feel naked without it!

I dunno, Kath. Teach him a lesson on losing logos. If you bend this time, he'll just do it again.

Tough love.

What if he lost your '73 Long Beach Auditorium bootleg of Deep Purple you let him borrow? Would you be so kind, then?

Well?

On the other hand, I don't like the idea of Walk in My Shadow naked, so help him out.

mwhaha, sloop.

well, yves, i discovered certain photobucket problems just last night, when my avatar disappeared, the one i've had up for eleven damn years. photobucket has suddenly decided that it will not allow you to post any of yer images to other sites. they have disabled all graphic image linking... unless you agree to pay four hundred fucquin dollars for the privilege.

this means that every image i have ever posted here, for example, hundreds of album cover mashups, all the pics in the beezle thread, etc, *poof*. those images are still on my photobucket; they're just being held for ransom. i'm sure i have most of em still on my computer, too, but it's a right fucquin bitch. the bastards.

reap managed to put up my avatar somewhere else so it could be linked, but i'm gonna hafta find a new site and start a-gnu.

i'm sure i still have yer avatar pic somewhere. it'll take a lil digging. if you have yer own uploading site that *aint* photobucket, i can just email you the pic. if you don't, you can wait for me to get back up and running with a site, and i will re-link you. it won't take me long. i neeeed to post letter images for the prog cup.

Photobucket deleted my whole library last year so I don't use them anymore.

ugh. they've only ever deleted select pics of mine (album covers with boobs send em into shit fits), but loki's right. they've gotten worser and worser. for some time now, they've gunked up the place with soooo many ads coming from all directions, at times blockin out the whole page... i would hafta take several times uploading or trying to access uploaded pics, it just wasn't really worth it. so you could tell the direction they were heading in; namely, broken links and internet highway robbery.

(even though charlie didn't ask me, i am now using imgur. no, i am no expert on such places, but so far, the uploading and linking is lightning fast. that being said, i don't know how they feel about album covers with boobs.)

kath's got it - now it has so many ads that it's barely useable. They keep changing their format, and it's difficult to maneuver.

I haven't bothered with it for a few years now (haven't switched).

You like imgur, kath?

i love it... so far. i signed up for an account. it was fast and easy. clicked on my name. it took me four seconds to hit the upload prompt, click my file, and have it uploaded. then clicked on the uploaded pic and instantly the codes for posting came up in the sidebar, the direct link option provided with a button click.

stick it in the image tags here... done.

once you have an account, which took no time anyway, we are talking seconds. zero gunk.

if i should have any probs with this place, i will let y'all know.

This is as good a time as any to recommend others to make a DeviantArt account and use their sta.sh service. As weird as that community may be, that can easily be ignored so long as the only thing you care is their image-hosting services: sta.sh is a much easier-to-use, ad-free, and actually *PRIVATE* alternative to Photobucket, as far as image-hosting sites I've tried. I jumped off the Photobucket bandwagon a couple of years ago already and am really not at all surprised by this change in policy - they are stupidly greedy and have been for some time.

i do agree with what you say about using deviantart as an image-hosting service. in principle, anyway. i myself have never used it for that purpose, so i don't know how good they are in that respect. i trust you on that front.

i have a particular problem with them, which is really irrelevant when it comes to the subject at hand. after the beezle died, i wanted to find a place where i could post all her art, so i went to deviantart. i sent a few emails to the head poobahs, asking if it was okay if i used the place to put up all beezle art. me being a... second party, i guess.

they told me no. what's more, i understand their approach and rationale.

no actual point here. but that ended that route for me.

the moral of the story: i have my own domain name now, and i will post whatever i will. once i get my fucquin act together. i have learnt many things in my dodderage. namely, fucque everybody else's rules.
