This blog has been hijacked with ransomware ads.

My image hosting website has unilaterally changed the terms of the hosting agreement, and has hijacked my photos.  They have temporarily disabled 3rd party hosting of some images in a crude attempt to extract more money from their users.  It’s corporate vandalism and ransomware.  But  you can still see all the images on my blog in the capture of the site in the Wayback Machine on June 14th.  In the future, I am going to switch over to a different image hosting website, Imgur.

I just found a workaround.  Right click on a ransomware ad, then click “Open Link In New Tab”, and if my image doesn’t appear right away, then refresh the URL window 2, or 3, or 4, or 5 times, or until my image appears.  If the attempt fails, kill the tab, and start again.  But I’m warning you, the image is accompanied by a whole slew of corporate-vandalism adverts through which you will have to navigate like swirling space-junk shrapnel in a star wars movie.  It’s photo-bucket hell!
