Son of a biscuit eater, Tinypic is shutting down!

Just went to upload a photo of the camera deal someone got for pennies on the dollar and this popped up.

TinyPic is shutting down in 2019
TinyPic is shutting down its image hosting service because we can no longer support a free service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site ad revenues.
While you may continue to host images from our site until further notice, we encourage you to consider selecting one of the premium plans offered by our sister site, Photobucket.
Thanks for using TinyPic for your hosting needs over the years. We apologize that we can no longer continue providing this service, but Photobucket is a great option going forward.

I've got 762 images and videos there including my signature Godzilla on here. That also means about every image I have linked here in the past is going to be broken.

Bad news. This is about the third generation of free cloud storage that is going away.

It makes me wonder how long Imgur will last.

We like to think the internet is permanent but it isn't.

Every service on the internet dies eventually, but I wonder about gmail... I have a really hard time seeing that go away unless email itself goes away.

I stopped using tinypic awhile ago. Site was getting more and more glitchy and too many sketchy pop-ups started appearing.

Remember MRF has a modest file service. At least enough to keep your MRF sigs and memes alive, mateys.

It’s a service. Costs $$ to run.

If it’s ‘free’, YOU are the product.

I tolerate that from Gmail and google photos for home stuff.

But for professional needs, I’m looking to pay to play. No ‘free’ password managers except the basic one from Apple.

I’m paying for our business email accounts - mostly google, but when in China we have to use something else.

Thanks! I didn't even know it was there. Just transferred my sig. to the MRF file server and it was successful.
