Ack! Not cool, Photobucket

So you may have noticed that the images on most of the posts here (except for a few recent ones) have been replaced with Photobucket's "broken link" image. So annoying. I'd say that "it bugs me"...

...but that is not nearly expressive enough. I am so frustrated, especially since Photobucket told me that my links would not break until my account was up for renewal.


That shouldn't happen until November -- plenty of time for me to move everything.

I'm waiting to hear back from them why that changed, and I'm hoping they will say that it was a mistake and my images will soon be back.

If not, you might have a couple of weeks (or more) of broken images here before I can get around to a solution.

Who knew that I'd have some apropos images previously used on this blog (and uploaded to Google instead of Photobucket)? 

I previously posted about the Photobucket TOS change here.

Photobucket must have done *something* because your images are back. Whew!

They still appear to be broken to me -- look at older posts. This one (and a few of the more recent ones) have images on Google, not Photobucket.

I cleared my cache and most images are showing again, so maybe they realized their mistake? No word from them yet.

Well, they're back for now. Good luck in transferring your photos and editing all those posts! Hope your program can manage it. I keep coming to your blog to read about bamboo and then end up lost in reading and I forget to add you to my blog roll. Finally remembered to do that, so I hope you keep blogging!

Did you get any eclipse photos? You were nearby totality, yes?

About 1500 of my blog posts are ruined. :( They are not getting a penny.

Hoov: I didn't bother with eclipse photos, but there's more to that story coming soon. Also, if my solution works for me it may work for you too -- please contact me directly.
