Mike, are you talking to Ciaran about this?

Yes, but he already has uplink bandwidth issues, so I don't know if he will proceed.

Quite annoyed actually because I have hundreds of photos on there dating back to about 2005 :? Wonder if I can download them all back from vomitbucket to my drive without giving them any money

You should be able to once all the panic dies down.
Give it a couple of weeks. I don't even bother trying to access the site now.

Downloading back to your PC is straightforward, Graeme.
I've done that last week (about 300 photos in about 15 albums).
Each album on PB is downloaded separately, and the photos come back zipped. Fairly quick process.
Save as zipped items, and unzip them to restore original JPEGs.
I left the photos on PB, so the new back-linking to here could be completed.

Dropbox has just closed one of my accounts.
Haven't a clue which one though :)

Are they on a mission too or just through inactivity Steve?

They did say inactivity but I have had several notifications and logged in to the account and fiddled around with it a bit but they have still closed it.
I suspect it was another one that I have forgotten about so it isn't likely to impact anything much.
They killed the forum embedding a while back too.
