Well, it appears to be a picture of my new guitar, but there's an annoying picture under it that I'm sure will eventually end my use of photobucket. Got this from "Starshine" on eBay, it's basically the same as a $10,000 Gibson for $450 w/case. Sounds great.... awesome finish, light, extremely playable........ Now when you consider I could get a year of photobucket for $400, or this guitar without case for $360.......... well doesn't take an Einstein to do the math on that

The ability to play/make music is a gift that not everyone gets. Those of us who have it should use it.

Yes, Photobucket is toast. As you can see, the LAME PHOTOBUCKET picture of my sunglasses no longer says "GIVE PHOTOBUCKET 400 A YEAR" and that's because I created a FB Photo Album and stored my picture there, then right mouse button clicked on it to get the VIEW PICTURE option, did that and copy and pasted the FB address into my signature.

Problem Solved. Total cost about 5 minutes (mostly spent trying to find the original picture)

GOODBYE PHOTOBUCKET

Hey guys, haven't been around in while.. I'm using dropbox now, public/ folder. Replace ?dl=0 with ?raw=1 at the end of the url, good to go. I also found out if you decide to move the photos around below the public/ directory the urls still work.
