Image Nightmares

Image Shack, where most of the images on this blog are stored, is proving to be unreliable. Half of the images don’t load half of the time and even in my Image Shack folders it says “Thumbnail Not Available”. Image Shack has been quite reliable in the past, but lately it’s become progressively worse. I can understand downtime, but this is ridiculous! So now I have the onerous task of using another image host, transferring all of the images to another host, then changing locations in each entry. And there are over 200 images! Ugh!

I had also created a plethora of RMXP windowskins the other day, some of which were converted from a few of the RMVX ones I did. But due to an error in transferring them onto DVD, I lost them. Good job there’s a backup somewhere; experience can be a hardnut teacher! So I’ll be attempting that again soon.

If “bad” things come in threes, the third hasn’t happened yet. Fingers crossed! But I also believe in “third time lucky”, regardless if it’s bad or not, so whatever the outcome it’s going to work out in the end.

  1. Uh oh…I also use ImageShack to host my images, mainly my blog layout, but so far I haven’t had any problems. Of course, I’ve got far less images, so maybe whatever the problem is just hasn’t worked its way to the space I’m using. Hopefully, they’re just maintaining and/or upgrading their servers and it’ll pass eventually. 🙂

    200+ images? You’ll have your work cut out for you moving them all!

    Talk about a “hardnut teacher”; I now back up everyday! LOL.

  2. It’s been ongoing for a few months now, progressively worse. On the RPG Maker 2K3 Master blog, the graphics for the “System Tutorial” showed up and have been deleted, only a URL remains LOL.

    Hard work, but worth it in the end. 200 ish images isn’t that bad!
