    People need to stop supporting photobucket so it can just die the death it deserves.
    Open a FLickr account, it is free and unlimited photo storage.

    I prefer puush / sharex. It lets you upload any small files you want at the push of a hotkey, and autocopies the link to your clipboard. Way easier than logging into a website and uploading.

    Logging in and uploading is hard?
    Really?
    Most browsers remember your login and Flickr has a stand alone auto uploader you can install.

    I asked Vaschenko about this picture and what was happening. It was explained that for him to achieve the level of dirty lemon burst he was leaving the guitar in front of a sun-lamp for several days. Valaries attention to detail and old world skills are incredible.

    Beautiful and all, but how do you even get that into the States now? Braz board, mastodon bone nut, etc. That's confiscation material right there.
