I hope I have fixed it now.

Etienne - FYI - The photo I see in your original post above is the same as the one from 2 days ago - 3 Woodstocks side-by-side. I've refreshed to be sure it's not a cached image and it still appears the same.

FWIW I couldn't see them until today.

Quite frankly, I don't know why anyone has used Photobucket for years, because they have long been a poor service.

I've been using imgur for a while (probably about 8 years) for hosting images I post to forums, and while they have gone downhill they haven't pulled anything anywhere near this bad yet.

Hopefully Geoff has backups of his images so he can rehost them elsewhere and then update his posts.
Nice to know . Anyway imgur serves Reddit so should be quite strong.

9865 meters... Well, next time please tweak a little your autopilot, as an altitude of 9845, 9835, 9830, 9825, 9820, 9815 or 9810 would have been more appropriate! ;-)

Ahhh,

But we are flying on a pressure altitude not areal altitude above ground.

;-)

I will attempt to migrate pictures to imgur. Never had a problem with the 2000+ images at photobucket but I will be damned that I will be held hostage including retroactively! And yes, the photos are there.

No need for backups, fortunately:

"Are my pictures still safe?
Yes! All your photos are still available by logging into your Photobucket Account. Photobucket has only restricted the ability to view your photos on 3rd party sites."
