    Sadly, all the pics are being held hostage for ransom by you know who, "PB" which have now all been removed from their site.

    The first link is to a thread on re-manufacturing Yamaha Tilt & Trim units.

    http://mbgforum.com/topic/993-yamaha-tampt-overhaul/

    This link is to a Hewes LT 20 Flats boat I own & completely rebuilt from inside out with LOTS of custom fabrication during the process.
    Final cost was around $40K if memory serves me correctly but that was including complete motor rebuild and a new tandem axle trailer.

    http://mbgforum.com/topic/797-94-hewes-lt-20-overhaul/

    Own another bigger boat I spent a few dollars on restoring and upgrading "Everything" but never got around to starting a thread on that one.


    Rasper, any chance we might be able to get an off topic sub section going here?
    PB ruined that thread for sure. Far from interesting without pics.

    A few hundred I'm guessing.
    I wasn't paying either.

    Capacity usage was up there.

    Some were edited prior to uploading, some weren't.

    Mine is a free account too and all my pics here and on other forums disappeared overnight a couple nights ago just like I had assumed everyone else's had. DavidF, that is surprising that your pb-hosted pix here still work... I can still see my pix if I go to the pb site but anywhere I have posted links in IMG tags, they're gone now. Anyone know how I can manage (delete) old uploaded non-pbucket photos hosted on this forum from before I hit my cap that don't add much to those old posts which are unlikely to get seen again anyhow? I want to be able to upload here again while I figure out some new non-PB solution... I found an attachment manager thing but it only seemed to have buttons for uploading, not deleting. Maybe I am missing something?

    I played with google photos a little; figured out how to create a sharable link, but the link won't work in an IMG tag. So any insqight on how to do that would be nice, and may also help others get through this...

    It took me awhile to get everything from PB down loaded back to my PC.
    Now it freezes up when I attempt to delete the account.

    Look on the right side of the screen when on PB and you'll see the options.
    It also has an option to completely delete an entire album.

    That sight isn't worth the memory it taking up on the net.

    I crated an account earlier today on FlickR and thought I had figured out the program quickly to find out it's not very user friendly for new members.

    Just created a free unlimited account on Imgur.com and it's very user friendly.

    Not sure how we delete direct PC uploaded pics to our site but hopefully Rasper or somebody else with the knowledge will tell us how to do it because I'ld like to do the same.

    In the upper right corner of each pic in the lower window there will be an X.
    Click to delete.

    Drupal is cool, and popular, but it's a generic tool for building sites rather than a ready-to-go forum system. Sure it (or basically any CMS) can consume a database, but somebody's got to do all the leg-work to stand up the site, and then if it breaks, they get to keep both pieces. The easy-path is to stick with vBulliten (existing) or upgrade to version 5. It's like $200-$250 and comes with support (important when you need it). Stick up a go fund me to make it easy to split the cost: Lotsa people chipping in a buck or two could make it happen pretty easy.

    While any "cloud" service can just "go away" at any time, at least SpiderOak's entire business is providing data-longevity (otherwise why would you use them for backup?) IIRC, they have committed to data-availability even if you stop paying them (you just can't change or add anything new). Sure the setup/startup hill is a bit tough to climb, but, common, you should be backing up your data anyway. Setting parts of the backup for sharing isn't all that hard..

    In all cases, whatever service, wherever you store the photos isn't important (from the POV of forum posts), it's the URL to the photos and having them never, ever, ever change.

    Yeah. Glad I didn't go with them.

    Google pulled the same crap with no forum direct embed links. I switched to flickr. Hope fully they don't go the same way in the future.

    Free PB still okay for me at the moment.... I didnt have but 50images on there and I just rescued them. Lets see what happens......



    But this below does not look good for us.



    Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website.

    For example, using the <img> tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, blog, etc. is definitively 3rd party hosting.
