Image hosting blocked

Post by timster »

The image hosting link seems to go to about.blank#blocked

Nothing has changed my end since I last used it. Any ideas?

Should've said, postimage. Have to use add attachment at the moment.
And hey presto it's working again. Must have been a blip!

Postimage's server can be a bit glitchy at times which is why I recommend the Kabins attachment feature (even though it uses the Kabin's bandwidth and disc space)

Plus of course there is never the chance of images vanishing as has happened to other free image hosting platforms.

I did wonder which was preferred. If you advocate attachments even with the increased storage, that's what I'll do in future.

Its the 'safer' option which is why I recommend it (plus of course if I didn't want you to use it I would have disabled that feature)

I always use the attachments as hosting sites often go wonky. :smt009
It’s worth remembering that bandwidth costs and it’s why I occasionally do a donate to the Kabin to keep it smooth.

Hi folks,

Just thought I'd add my two pence worth here.

This site is free and provided by the good will of an obvious enthusiast.

Donating keeps this site working and costs down for The Kaptain. Running a site is expensive, Administrating a site can be extremely difficult, storage costs money and absolutely nothing is free! (Excepting the advice and wisdom of everyone using this site)

Whether you just want to say what equipment you're using or get into heavy duty projects. You can share pictures/projects with other enthusiasts, whilst at the same time, build a history and timeline (and library) of mods you (or anyone) can refer back to at anytime. This many people observing and giving their opinions on a project/system (whatever anyone is using) is incredibly helpful, paying heed or not is optional, but help is there from very knowledgeable and dependable sources.

I'll be using this facility a lot and will donate accordingly for that privilege.

Thank you for this resource The Kaptain. I certainly appreciate it. :D :smt023

Thank you for your kind words, and of course for your donation towards the hosting costs. It all helps to keep The HiFiKabin alive and on the super fast server we have at Kualo
