Default Has something changed?

I just noticed that all of my pics that were previously being held hostage by Photobucket are showing up again. Did I miss a memo? Did they finally come to their senses?

I saw that too. I haven't received an email or seen anyone mention it before your thread. Makes me wonder if an employee changed something just before quitting.

I will too. Their design is much easier to use and to keep photos organized than any of the free sites that are available.

As a celebration of the hostage release, and of my son closing on a house and getting out of his non-rocket-friendly tiny apartment in July, I'm bumping an old thread...

I remember those shots. I have a couple of 2-stagers planned if our Saturday launch doesn't get rained out, but not quite with this cool factor.

Thousands of photos are linked from photobucket on here and have been locked from view. We've all been more than a little mad that we haven't been able to do a search and see any photos associated with the searches. I'm not tooting my own horn. That was my son's scratch built gap staged rocket, not mine.

BTW, there is no ejection charge in a booster motor. The propellant grain burns through the top.

D'oh! I always thought they were like other motors, but with no delay and no clay cap on the top. I'm glad to get the real story.

Too bad my office blocks photobucket along with other file sharing sites. I still don't get to see the pretty pictures.
