I have copied this from a thread on MyLesPaul, from user Rocco Crocco, who copied it from The Gear Page, from user Ape Factory. It's working for me in Firefox (I don't use Chrome) and Rocco says it's working for him on his Chrome device, so here it is:


"This is for Chrome and Firefox, I've not found an extension for Safari yet.

Anyway, if you have the latest Firefox, download it here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/photobucket-fix/ and install the extension. Make sure you have at least v.48 (latest one). Restart and all of the photo bucket links now work. F*ck you Photobucket!

Link for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/Photbucket%20hotlink%20fix?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon

Have an awesome weekend looking at Photobucket images."

Gibson Basses / Re: anyone in need of a Moog board for RD Artist?

There's a pedal for everything today. OTOH I do understand why people want to keep theirs original or restore theirs, so long as it doesn't get into ridiculous territory like guys paying $50 for a rusty pickguard screw from the same year.

If you have an RD you want to restore, then you want the board, even if a modern two-band preamp would do the trick. Or an external preamp pedal, for that matter. it's no different from wanting any other vintage part.

At least there are only two knobs.

Everyone including me.

He strung people along long enough beyond lawsuit limitations. Was a trusted person and contributor at the dude pit.

How long have you been waiting, John? 15 years?

After all this time, with all the people he's stiffed out of so much money, I'm surprised that no one has delivered a little vigilante justice.

That doesn't look like it will balance well.

This guy made a video about the Meteora and pointed out that it was the Voyager body. Here he is with more leaks. No idea if any of these will make it to production.

These Waghorns look really nice, needs a Kahler though.

We always look to Uwe’s review, does he not still do this?

W.W.U.D. what would Uwe do?

Nice stance!

Oh this is a bass forum...

Where is the “like” button?

In your world, everything needs a Kahler.  ;D

No doubt Uwe will review whatever finally gets to him.

In the meantime, here's Scott's review of the new Epi bird, in case you didn't see it on FB.

I will try to hang with you guys more as I miss it as well.

I will say that my sister used to be my support, when I lost that, I felt lost. But my son who has become a Buddhist, has become my new life support. As he reminded me, it’s not about where you end up but the journey you take. Change is always difficult, and full of anxieties.

I learned to enjoy whatever I am doing, and being happy with what I have. My life is like my Toyota Corolla, it may not have everything I want, but it has everything I need.

Your last sentence rings a bell with me. That's how I've learned to live. Mick and Keith should write a song about it.

We're still about WWII aircraft, Gwyneth Paltrow, reptiles and other subjects...and basses, but you know that owning basses isn't required.

Uwe has been very busy the past few months between work and moving house.

The Outpost Cafe / Re: Suggestions for photo hosting site?

I'm favoring uploading - but it's a pain to downsize images first and I often don't have my whole photo library accessible.  In that case I do a quick Google search and link to a similar image.

You don't have to manually downsize. e.g. this one is larger than what the software is set to, it's done automatically.

Looks like the exact same body style, and I don't like that one either.

Exactly my thoughts... ...although Fender will ruin it with a PJ ;)

But of course!

Good work, Scott. Sounds good.
