Is the Random Pic thread broken?

I hope the thread recovers.  If not, acknowledge that Hobot did get the best of us.  We foolishly dove into rabbit holes of the internet searching several of his pics.  Some wartime, some sports, some motorsports, some geography, some history, some events.  Each interesting to one or some of us.

The best thread on the net! Hope it recovers or someone's got some splaining to do. If it doesn't,  a huge thanks Hobot for keeping us all entertained.

You're taking this well.

The rest of us aren't, we really miss it.  I've enjoyed all kinds of memories you had captured.  Especially your photos around Boston, you have a real feel for it.  You needn't answer that, but as a Marblehead sailor and Boston college student, I've appreciated it.

 

Here's hoping, dudes and dudettes.

Hell, I was gonna jump off a bridge when I found out. 

But the bridge I was planning to jump off is in the thread somewhere and now I can't find it. :mellow:

If it doesn't come back I know a guy who will take care of The Ed... and his mother.

He's expensive though so if it comes to that I'll need contributions from you all.

Thread drift, but what happened to that thread with all of the cool IOR boat pics? I went looking for that not too long ago and couldn't find it. Some drool-worthy pictures in that thread too

The 2007 thread? As always search is your friend. I don't mean the ever-fucked SA search. I mean simply Google "sailinganarchy IOR" to get all IOR thread links in a few milliseconds .... without incurring SA's obligatory punitive search penalty timeout + frustration + unrelated search garbage.

Surely we had one of those threads more recently than that? Maybe 3-4 years ago or so?

Anyway, we want our random pics thread back!

maybe this is the answer ?

just tried to add a pic to a post the usual way , aka , find and post the pic's url

only to be told it could not be embedded because it wasn't https ...................

I'm guessing the vast majority of the old pics in the random pic thread were simple http .

So RIP random pic thread :(

Vinnie the Weasel is on his way to Dago to "visit" the Ed.

I'll be starting a Gofundme to get some help with his rather exorbitant fee.

I wonder if Hobot is feeling just a little relief from the tyranny of needing to keep the random pic moving forward. I too miss it, but  I have nothing but deep gratitude for the Hobots efforts over all these years(!) and offer him a virtual standing ovation and certificate of appreciation for all the enjoyment he’s given us. Enjoy your rest, sir.

I'd really like to dig into the technical problems with this one.  If they haven't fixed it yet it isn't easy, and that's the kind of challenge I really like.  I'm betting we have enough expertise on these boards to fix it.

Spent 10+ years entertaining us in a rhythm and sequence only Hobot can do. that'll never be matched. Only to see his hard work vanish in one click! I'd be pissed too. Probably needs a break from this place. Let's hope he comes back with a vengeance.
