General Discussion / Photo Hosting

Are the general public users going to get kicked in the teeth again?  First Photobucket got greedy, and now Flickr is under new management.

Quote
We?re excited to announce that Flickr has agreed to be acquired by SmugMug, the photography platform dedicated to visual storytellers.

SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. With SmugMug, we?ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.

Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account. You will still access Flickr with your current login credentials and you will have the same Flickr experience as you do now. We will continue to work to make your Flickr experience even better.

We think you are going to love Flickr under SmugMug ownership, but you can choose to not have your Flickr account and data transferred to SmugMug until May 25, 2018. If you want to keep your Flickr account and data from being transferred, you must go to your Flickr account to download the photos and videos you want to keep, then delete your account from your Account Settings by May 25, 2018.

If you do not delete your account by May 25, 2018, your Flickr account and data will transfer to SmugMug and will be governed by SmugMug?s Terms and Privacy Policy.

Read more detailed FAQs about this transition on the Flickr Blog.

We?re happy that Flickr is your home for photography and we look forward to the next chapter in our adventure together as we join the SmugMug family.

I am glad to know about these.     :thumbsup:        The palms and fingers are not neoprene, that would not last but a couple of days.  It is a HPT (Hydropellant technology) coating that is protecting your hands and according to the manufacturer it is a durable material designed for material handling.  I will sure try a pair and the price is cheaper than the leather gloves I normally use.
You're right, of course. I typed that before reading the mfg description. I do know they are chemical resistant, and gasoline doesn't penetrate, or affect them.

I don't do product reviews usually, because the only new gear I've obtained in years has been a couple flashlights.  But I just wanted to pass this info on.

I handle a LOT of wood.  3-6 cords of firewood every year, from hauling, bucking to splitting and making kindling.  The one thing that has always irritated me is how long a pair of gloves will last me, which is usually 1 season, or less in the case of $2 cloth work gloves.
I also do most of the wood handling in the dead of winter, which means wetness rulz.

It's a PITA to post pictures here now, being a 4 step process at best, so I'm just going to grab an image off the 'net to show what I'm raving about.
These gloves I got from my local hardware store for about $12.  I am going into my 3rd wood season with the same pair!  They have neoprene palms and fingers, and nylon backs. They are relatively warm even when soaking wet, and dry in a couple of hours indoors.  They don't stiffen up after drying since they contain no leather. The also fit snugly enough that most tasks can be performed without removing them.  The only time I need to take them off is reaching into a pocket, or opening a non-assisted folder.  After 2 seasons of handling split firewood, there is only one 1/8" tear on the inside of one thumb.
Read the full info on Amazon, and check the ratings.  Good stuff, Maynard!

Nice shots, BH! :thumbsup:    I bet that old cold-handle skillet could tell some stories. ;D

I bet it could
certainly a different place from here in Florida.  What were the temps?

High of 60, low overnight of 35. When i woke up at 6 it was very windy and the wind was coming down the pass and it was cold.

I still don't get it.

I guess when something is said the reader doesn't get- a net search may solve it

The heck with Phill...Spring is just around the corner!
My son came out of hibernation and took advantage of our 60o weather to surprise me by cutting down 10 years growth of suckers all around my Italian plum tree!  Wow! Now if I can just herd him toward my compost bins.... ;D
