Ribbon Bar Devices Gallery - Photos are disappearing


Recommended Posts

Hello,

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?

 

Best,

Nicolas

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:

http://gmic.co.uk/gallery/image/7945-device-swords-leaves-03/

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

Please check

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
