Picture of Old

Pictures: Today’s photos are from my first post back in Sept of 07. I am starting to move my Photo-Bucket photos(PhotoBucket Sucks) to my Flickr account. This post from Sept of 07  was before I even started on the  road. In that post I have fixed three of the photo links by moving them to Flickr.

PhotoBucket Sucks …

From that post, here is a Skipper, Red Spotted Purple and a Monarch. These are small photos, bandwidth when I posted these was not what it is today 🙂


Red Spotted Purple


Exercise: Today I walked 2 miles.

Chores: Today I did a couple of chores in Parker that needed done, laundry and such.

Old Shots

Pictures: I took these two pictures back in 07 and 08 and I likely posted them on this blog but …. that was back when I was using Photo-bucket(which so kindly broke everyone’s links) and if you did find that post the links would be broken so I am doing a re-posting of them today.



Chores: I was off to the city today to do the chores and got a few things done.

Special Post



Photobucket: I am sad to say that literally 100s of my link in post will now be broken due to Photobucket change in policy 😦 😦 😦
Hot linking is now no longer allowed on free accounts or paid accounts (which I had all the time over the years I was a heavy user of their site) (But now ….. it will cost you $400.00 a year if you want to keep your images linked, a ridiculous amount) so I now have 100s of post with broken links and no way to fix them short of uploading all the photos to another site and re-linking them again. Lucky for me I always backup my images locally to a hard drive so no lost of images. Also I never upload the full size images to any online site …. one: for this reason and other reason too. Bottom line you cannot trust free online sites and to be honest I would not put a lot of trust in paid site either!!! Glad I knew that going in.

I have over 600 bird images and 100s of others images all with broken links on my blog now 😦 😦

Note: This happen to users that were paying them $60.00 a year on their paid accounts Too. They want $400.00 a year!

Photobucket you have the right to change your policy but replacing all the images with a link to your site ….. is free advertisement for you, I see this as just plain lowlife!!!


With Verizon buying Yahoo (and Flickr as part of Yahoo) I worry what will happen with Flickr images too.

Sorry folks I always make a rule to try to stay on the positive side of things, but this just pisses me off!
