Go home LJ, you're drunk. Take PB with you

This morning I decided to look through my recipe tags on LJ via phone (I was in the kitchen) rather than make the trip upstairs to look on my computer. Apparently LJ on the web now has those [sarcasm]wonderful[/sarcasm] pop up and hijack ads. You know, the kind that scream "You've just won X! Click here to accept!" or "Your phone is almost out of storage! Click here to clean it up!" I didn't have to physically shut off my phone to get them to go away, but I actually couldn't get to my own site, when I'm registered and logged in, because of the damn ads.

LJ, if you want to break up with me, just do it already, okay?

Also, having tried Smugmug for 2 weeks, I think I'm going with that as my PB replacement, assuming PB continues to auger into the ground. I hate all the link rot, but unless PB completely backpedals, it's over.

I briefly googled PB alternatives, but seem to think smugmug will not do free image hosting. Yes, no?

Looks like it's pay only. But I don't think many places will offer free image hosting like PB any more. PB did admit the cost of it is more than they can carry any more. I don't agree with their extortionist response, but I do get why image hosting costs money.

That said, I was already paying for PB once a year, so I'm willing to give Smugmug my money.

They give you a 14 day trial (no CC required) and then another 14 day trial if you want, so that's a full month to test it out and see what you think. But, yeah, I don't think anyone nowadays really does what PB used to do.
