There are lots of guys who have setup their own hosts now. The rest of us have spread out to postimage, flickr, or a couple others.

I use postimage, but they had a problem with their server host a few weeks ago that almost shut them down completely, so I'm not sure how stable they are right now

 

Yesterday Postimage was having issues, but today it was working fine again.

I just opened that Postimage account 4/5 days ago and the third/fourth day it didn't work properly, it kept showing an error when trying to upload a photo.

I've been quite happy with them. Just a little nervous.

Hi fellow Ratsun dudes ................I am back working on Blue Thunder , a big push to finish is on !!!!!!!!

I might need some help from Charlie to fix my past pics and what is everyone doing to host new pics ?

Hey Fast as far as pictures there are fixes for Chrome and FireFox but like Wayno said you can see your pictures but noone else can.. I am temporarily using Post Image and after getting aquainted with it I like it.  They have no limits and no pay for use at this time.

 

I will eventually set up a personal website but that will be after I get back on my feet after having my left knee replaced.

Hi Guys & Galls

I have been working on Blue thunder a bit , I got an offer from Photobucket for $ 100.00 bucks for the year to host my stuff , so instead of switching and learning a new site and all that  I signed up .

But they haven't switched me back on yet  ,If I don't get a response from them tomorrow  , I will burn them to the ground ..........................just saying.

So stay tuned  , I miss this site and all the support to keep me inspired .

Sounds like they are trying to save themselves/survive now, you need to go with a different hosting service and not get painted into a corner.

I'd like to see it back too, but I'd rather not see PB get any $'s.  I've been deleting their emails, but I don't think they've sent me any kind of offer.


Don't have to be too bright to be me!! :D
Sadly, I prove this nearly everyday!!! :(

The way PhotoBucket did the posted pictures for millions of users was just bad business and I will not pay them a penney.  Who is to say you pay PhotoBucket $100 now and in a week they want another $100.  They have proven to the world that they will fuck you at the drop of a hat.

 

If you want email your pictures to me and I will post them for you.  Best of all I will not charge you any thing for doing it.

Charge and "favors" are sort of the same, Charlie  :rofl:

Hi

Been working on inner front fenders , needed a little more clearance at full lock , you know incase it ever gets sideways lol lol  ...

I will have to relocate the battery in the back of the truck somewhere , probably going to use a Miata Battery because they are small , plus I happen to have one .

I added power steering from a D21 so I decided to drop the fluid res into the fender .

Hi 

The other side  , I had to cut a big slice out of the bottom of the air box ,

For the power steering pump , it has to run on the blower belt , So I had to convert the pulley from a V belt .

I machined the V part off the old pulley and welded on the new one .
