Yep a right pain in the butt!

I haven't used PB for a good years because they did something similar before that required some form of upgrading, can't remember what it was but involved a lot of work or lose the images. As I always keep a copy of my photos anyway I didn't bother and started using imageshack but didn't like as much.

I had heard (and seen elsewhere) that photobucket were doing this and while I was on my Scottish steam train and whisky jolly, photobucket have got round to my account, removed all my photos and mucked up my signature by disabling my account! that's an awful lot of of photos suddenly not visible. I started re-hosting some on Flickr before I went but loads more to do from 2013 and earlier. I doubt I will ever do all of them, just too much time involved but I will try to get a good selection of my Vulcan pics back as soon as I can so there is a record on here (just hope the forum lasts). I've got hundreds if not thousands on the Civilian Aviation forum (where I'm an admin!) to do and some I will just upload to flickr and post a link to the album rather than individual photos (I have done some of the older airshows on there already).

They are gradually doing this to everyone who links from their photobucket accounts and asking for an annual fee of around $300, I feel that's just holding people to ransom so I'll just use flickr instead and maybe go 'Pro' on there and pay them a subscription - I don't like being bullied so PB won't get my money I'm afraid.

Anyway, if anybody else uses Photobucket as their photo host then be aware that it may soon happen to you too. Flickr's quality is much better anyway.


Rant over!

General Photography Discussion / EOS Slipping Main Wheel fix
« Last post by Funtera on April 15, 2017, 02:55:49 AM »
My 50D suddenly developed an issue last time in wales, I'd spin the Wheel for the Shutter speed and it'd spin without gripping.

I did some research and found an article and it suggests using Superglue (  HERE ) ... however I thought this was a bit harsh (bad dreams of gluing the damn thing to the body) and a couple of others in the Comments had the same thoughts. Someone suggested Rubbing Alcohol so I read a bit more into it.

Needless to say I picked up some Isopropyl Alcohol ( only 70% proof but not drinkable :-( ) and after pulling the Wheel out a bit and dabbing some on the Main Dial, I spun it a few times and it slipped completely , now I'm thinking I've messed up Big Time but after a couple of minutes the Alcohol and grease/gunk it's "eaten" had evaporated and it's perfect !!

I know this ain't the normal thread for in here but if this helps someone else save £179 from Canon to replace the Dial or whatever from Lehmans .. I've done some good!

Is this the only preserved example of a specific aircraft type's only active combat campaign while still in service?

I guess it's still 'as is' to warn <insert name of aggressive power> what 'we' can do if they mess around.... Or at least what we would like them to think we could do!

I'm sure that having a bomber designed to carry Nukes turning up stealthily off their coastline must have sent a few shivers down those Nazi-hiders spines.

I hope I'm not wrong but if I have got my facts right then those 21 craters should be celebrated because nobody was killed in creating them & just one of them saved countless lives (on both sides).

They should put a plaque on that - and have a Union Jack flying  ;)
