    Oh, and BTW the image is what's left of my upper control arm bushing that came out of my S10. I think I'll be taking off the Rancho shocks and going back to stock!

    Back in business. Amazon S3 is Free for the first year, and the monthly rates are pretty reasonable....certainly not $400 per year. A friend at work is backing up home security camera data, storing his photo collection for about $3 or $4 per month. May or may not be more in my case since Amazon does charge for downloads from their cloud, but the rates are pretty reasonable.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I think it's going to work. AWS S3 can also amongst other things backup data at the house, do hosting and more. As a paying customer, I won't have to worry about the PhotoNazis blowing up all my write ups. What a mess they made. So sad. I'm so mad.

    I'll have to take a look at them. Ultimately, I'm afraid I'm probably just out of the picture business on here. Unlike some posts and members, I probably didn't have anything significantly helpful or noteworthy to anyone. I'd be happy to send anything with a PM if someone discovers something they could use. I never counted on a free service for my backup anyway.

    Photobucket is a cautionary tale for those who hope and pray on "the cloud" .....especially "free cloud" if there's such a thing. Whoever is funding it, will continue until it no longer serves their interests. Photobucket either could not (rumored) or would not continue. Whatever the case, it created a mess. A real shame. I won't go BookFace either, their price is too damned high for me (my life and my privacy; I won't let them own me. Real friends are way better than Facebook friends anyway).

    Due to other necessary DIY projects, I've been away from the A-body forum in recent months. Logged in today and just discovered that I've been Photobucked! Geez, all that time and effort photo-documenting my makeover thread now being held for ransom. I have more stuff to post, too. Grrr ...

    If it's free, you aren't a paying customer....you have no rights. It's a shame.

    It really bummed me. They (Photobucket) burned down libraries all over the internet. They have to know they are stink of the net now with this dumb "pay us" images all over the place.

    I've got Amazon S3 lined up, just need to get practiced with the process, and I'll be in business again.

    Yeah, it's a problem. Part of it was the waning number of a-cars on the road...that's inevitable. The kick in the nuts by Photobucket wasn't appreciated; I grieve for all that good info stored here. About 6 months ago I converted a lot of the threads to PDF; in particular some good headliner write ups as well as others.

    Not a fan of BookFace...it's just too much TMI. I don't need "Facebook Friends." I prefer "real friends." I might have to create an alias just for my car fix.

    I opted for imgur.com to post photos of my repaint. It is the same process to post pictures as photobuck, and I don't have to put up with the annoying ads when uploading pictures to my account.
