Well it has been a long time I did not post anything and that could be explained having some trouble with the Photobucket Platform. So I decided to move on another picture storing site to avoid any bothering slowing advertising Windows. For anyone who wants to see my old posts pictures I'll try to repost them if asked. The older posts from Photobucket will no longer be available at all.

I'm trying Imgur. So far so good. It's nice and light and doesn't crash my browser.

Well I've chosen Flickr because of its interface which is more familiar to me than the one on Imgur. It's just a matter of files hierarchy.

Photobucket causes some graphic crashes on my computer. I can not use it anymore. Printing is possible in many reliable ways as my archives are permanently saved on an external harddisk. If you want to print something I've posted on Flickr for any reference you may copy-paste it on your machine. Please don't release them anywhere : they contains some borrowed elements from other publications in an evolutionary stage of development.

Photobucket... : P

First they messed everything up with their java/javascript crud... so much that i had to use Chrome for a while to see anything at all...

Now they're not allowing adblocker filters... and after disabling adblocker - still not letting the pictures load... but their damn pop-up ads load swell... : (

Seriously thinking about moving all my stuff over to Flickr... sure wish there was a migration tool... ; )

I did by hand as all my files are on an external harddisk. If I have something to see on Photobucket I do it with my cellphone. Advertising popups seem to be useless with Android. They do not affect my phone by decreasing its speed.
