Got up Saturday morning to find that image hosting site Photobucket had decided that they were no longer going to allow third-party linking to photos posted on Photobucket. This means that all the images I had put up at the Let's Anime blog that were hosted at Photobucket were no longer there - and THAT meant that I was going to spend the next four days editing pretty much the first five years of Let's Anime posts, taking out the links to Photobucket images, and replacing those images with images hosted through Blogger. So that's what I've been up to. I still have a banner ad that needs fixing, but most everything else is where it needs to be, I think.

As God as my witness, I do NOT know what else you'd use Photobucket for, if not to post images for use on sites that don't have their own image hosting available. I will be wiping my Photobucket account clean and deleting it forthwith and will never use the service again.

Also Saturday: got the oil changed in the car and the fan belt replaced so that it doesn't squeak so loudly that it frightens children and small animals. Got a haircut. Did some walking. Sunday and Monday and Tuesday was more Let's Anime maintenance (and work). Fixing broken links, updating the more obviously out-dated news items, finding better images, that kinda thing.

Neil is coming to town this weekend for the all-night movie marathon and hopefully the Carlton's AC is better suited for the task than it was last year. I made it until about 4:30am last year before the swampy claustrophobia set in and I simply had to leave. This year's marathon is a bunch of Ed Wood movies, which at least are a little snappier than "War Of The Gargantuas", which is the one that broke me last time. Still, I don't make any promises that I'll be there all night long.

Next weekend we head South for a beach vacation. Looking forward to some time off. Then it's back home and time to get ready for AWA!

Wow, that's really good to know about Photobucket. I stopped using it a long while ago so I don't have any linking issues to care about anymore, but I still have thousands of photos there....
