My apologies if all you 21st Century computer whizz kids already know this but there is a simple fix to negate Photobastards system and make all visible again.

For Firefox internet users simply enter "firefox add on photobucket fix" then Click 'install'. The instructions also include a http://www.site for Chrome users. Seems to work a treat, even on my Soviet issue historic computer.

Thanks to TruckNetUK  (truckers website)

Regards,    Michael

Great find Michael! I imagine that when you turn your computer on, instead of saying "Welcome" it just says "Здравствуйте".

Between Firefox and Chrome users, that's about 85% of the population with a browser, so that's good new for most people on this site.

Photobucket shot themselves in the foot... ...with buckshot.  If anyone wants to start a low-cost (or better yet, free) photo hosting site, the market is wide open. 

"Photobastards" would make a great name too!

Hi Michael :mex:



Great to hear that your '80s main-battle-tank USSR 'KoMPyOUtER' (TM) is still dicing digits ! :brill:



I guess it was inevitable that you'd have to get rid of your original Babbage model at some point. :f:





Progress I suppose.



:old dude:
