I'm backing up everything I have on photobucket and calling it quits. I wouldn't be surprised if they went belly up. It's a shame. There's so much history and information across all kinds of forums that have relied on third party hosting that photobucket is now ruining. If they wanted $25 or even $50 to continue third party hosting, it might be doable just to keep links alive for posterity. $400, no way.

I'm using imgur now. It's fast and easy.

Looks like there is now a fix out for Photobucket. It may work, it may not, but it may be worth a shot.
