Ribbon Bar Devices Gallery - Photos are disappearing

Recommended Posts


Recently I noticed that many photos from the "Ribbon Bar Devices Gallery" made by Rick Lundström disappeared. 

I really enjoy the gallery and it is a very valuable research tool.

Is there any chance to restore the photos?

It depends. At least two popular free image posting services discontinued the free offering. So, all the links to the images on Photoshack and Photobucket were broken. I have heard just this week that one of these services might be restoring the free accounts, due to pressure from the community. I'm not sure if this will do anything in regard to restoring images on forums, however.

I just checked several of the source html files and it looks like all images were uploaded to the GMIC server so I reckon they should all still be on the GMIC server. I think the problem is related to faulty URL's either on the website and/or in the database. For example, if I open the first image via the website via the following URL i find nothing:


If I instead use the following link from the HTML I do find the image:
