This is un fun

Post by CalAltaDubber » Sun Feb 12, 2017 2:05 pm

My ISP Has decided to remove the web space they were providing me for the last 15 years or so. I guess there are not enough users for them to keep operating that part of the service. :(

So as of March 6, all the photos that I've posted here will disappear. Now that sucks!

I'm just going to have to find some new place so I can post pictures and stuff here.

I use photo bucket, and I guess google photos may work.

I also used Photobucket for many years, until it got way too slow and way too many ads to the point it was unusable for me.
There is a number of photo sharing and storage out there, I've heard good things of imgur.com

Lately I have had some terrible things with PhotoBucket, I don't know if it is a Network thing, or what but this year for the first time I got denial of Service, Servers Down, or unreachable. Hell I have even had people email me "flaming me" as to why my pictures have been moved, and I really need to repost them.... Just can't believe that folks would send me emails bitching about my photos not showing up.

I have google Photos for my Andy Roid. But I really use that for my family chatter. I also have I-photos, or what ever you call it for Mac. Thankfully I have my How's to's spread out so I can't lose them again....Pictures are another story.

Maybe I'll setup a new domain like I had with Phil's-Garage. Just something to think about.

I did use one of those photo sharing sites once. It was a bit of a pain and then it shut down.

I'd sooner use my own space for photos..

Well I have been using Photobucket for a really long time, probably as long as I have been a member of this forum, all in all it has been fairly reliable till the last 6 months when I have had issues.

I had thought about posting my photos and such to my local isp, but I have changes ISP's so much that it would be a real pain in the butt to
move things about, and then re-link all my photos.

I have even had folks Flame me in posts and Emails when my "Bucket" account was having issues.... Gee like it is my Fault....

I feel your Pain.
