Photobucket is back

If you want to use it.  It's about $6 a month and all your photos held hostage can now be shared.

    Yea... no.

    $20/year would have been reasonable and I would have gladly paid it... before they pulled their crap. Now? I want them to crash and burn in misery. They will never get a dime from me. Ever.

    As you please.  I've e got a number of photos stored there I  can/t retrieve otherwise, and I wish them success.   The turd is gone.

    Bean counters screw up more than they ever helped. Think Winchester Model 70 and Remington as a whole company. How many stories have we heard about these idiots trying to save a penny and cost the company millions?

    Why can’t you retrieve them? They just didn’t allow them to be posted in other places. 
    Because I moved almost all of my photos to another service.  I'm familiar with how it works.

    You don't need to sign up and pay.  You can still get into your library and download your pictures back.. Tedious, but I do a few every week and will keep on going until I'm completely out.  

    For $2.99 a month wife and I have a few terabytes of iCloud for storage and backup, great for pictures (my wife has a library with over 40,000 in there).  No need for the feeble platform Photobucket offers anymore.  Their business model has run it's course and they will soon die...
    To store lots and lots of files I've found the best solution is adding an external hard drive to the system.  It's possible to get an 8 terabyte USB external drive for about $180.00, and if that's too expensive, smaller drives are available for less.  With an external drive, I can lock it in a safe when it's not being used, and it doesn't get any better than that.

    So I buy cloud storage from a company that I know will not fail me because it is super cheap.  There is nothing wrong with triple insurance, my data is precious to me...

    Yep. I have 2 layers of local backup, PLUS cloud storage in case the house burns down or whatever. You always should have at least one backup "over THERE" so to speak. Back in the day, it was a plastic case full of 8 inch floppies stored at my parent's house.

    That works just fine for some folks.  I already have a bank of external multi terabyte drives on two separate Macs at home AND an Apple Time Capsule for critical backups of data.  I also have access to my company's cloud storage for all of my work stuff.  All thedivces in my house can fry in an instant from power surges or any of them can just fail from a head crash.  MTBF on consumer grade devices is not infinite.  

    So I buy cloud storage from a company that I know will not fail me because it is super cheap.  There is nothing wrong with triple insurance, my data is precious to me and I want it to travel with me everywhere I go (be accessible from whatever device I have in my hands).


    I won't trust my data at home to anyone; period.  Head crashes are pretty much a thing of the past if a drive is allowed to spin down before it is moved.  The protection for my entire system is a line conditioner that keeps the A/C voltage level constant at all times,  USB devices can be connected/disconnected while the system is running, and nothing bad can happen to a disconnected drive if it is not dropped.  For backups I use Retrospect, Silver Keeper and WD's SmartWare; each to different media.  My wife's computer is backed up using Time Capsule, but only to an external drive.

    I hope you at least keep one of those USB drives someplace else, otherwise you're "asking for it"...

    Glad that works for you.  In the last 5 years I’ve had 3 external drives crap out on me, and no I don’t buy cheap ones.  But none of my drives spend any time powered down.  They are all live 7x24.  I don’t trust consumer grade stuff.  Confidential stuff goes to my work cloud, family and entertainment crap to Apple and I sleep like a baby.
    Three drives failing in five years is a lot!  I used to keep this system up and running 7/24 like you, but I don't like being connected to the I'net anymore when I'm not around so I power it down now.  I run an odd sort of system for my own personal security and for the use of my legacy applications.  My favorite O/S is on a RAID 1 configuration located internally in my Quadcore G5 with two serial ATA drives that I wish were SCSI.  Then I have an external, SCSI RAID 5 tower I built running the latest O/S my system can handle when I just want to surf the I'net.  For an immediate backup I use an external FireWire, not USB, drive of the type I first mentioned.  My permanent backups are to DVDs, using an external FireWrie drive, are easy to store, and I don't mind babysitting the backup operation to change disks as necessary.  The bottom line for me is I don't want anyone to have any kind of access to, or control over my data.

    Again, I really hope you are storing at least one backup off site. You don't necessarily need "Iron Mountain", but a USB drive in a safety deposit box somewhere would be prudent.
