Precision crafted scarf joints there Cal. Wow and she's a right-hander too. Extremely appealing to the eye.
Gorgeous knife. Just amazing craftsmanship.
Myth ....... Where did the pictures go ?????????????????????????????????????????? because they are still on Dropshots
Hi Cal. It may be a permissions issue. I can't see them by directly inputting the URL into my browser. I get a 403 (forbidden). It's possible that you can see them because you are logged in to Dropshots. (?)
It worked initially i have not done anything different than I have done since i started using them.
I think me and MR. Dropshots are about to part ways, they are turning into a Photobucket and I am starting to get lots of crap POP UPS from them.
What are some recommendations for a good photo hosting site ?
Although this it totally off from the original topic, I feel your frustration.
I have been using Google since 2013 for my blog and images without many hitches. There are trade-offs with everything. I guess I kind of have to trust someone with my stuff sooner or later. The way I see it is if the company I choose to hold my stuff makes billions a year from advertising, it is less likely to have to start charging me for the storage of my stuff down the road (ala Photobucket). That's the theory anyways. I created a blog, then I made a draft post. In the post I upload my photos and copy paste them directly into the forum here. Voila pictures show up. Conveniently, the pics are available on my phone, my PC at home, tablet etc. without any extra effort.
I think Apple has a similar thing with iCloud and would be a good choice if you are an Apple guy. Microsoft has OneDrive, there is Dropbox and a ton of others that give you some basic storage for free in hopes that one day you would need more than what is free and start paying them a monthly fee.
Google Drive is 15 Gig for free
iCloud is 5 Gig for free
Microsoft OneDrive is 5 Gig for free
DropBox is 10 Gigs for free (some promotions from time to time offer more)
Box is 10 gigs for free.
I really like your knives and miss the photos that you posted and lost on Photobucket. Hopefully you can find something stable and trustworthy moving forward.
Thanks for the info Dan, I will look at some of your suggestions and trash Dropshots
