However I've also been informed via an email from Photobucket that the photo hosting site is no longer going to allow third-party sites to access users' images without a hefty upfront fee, which was a bit of a shock given how all of those little Oink! cover images in the Relive section were all hosted there. My original reason for using it was simply because I had to program the HTML of those pages myself, as Blogger didn't like me trying to place three images side-by-side and so I needed somewhere to access the cover images from. But I've now discovered Blogger has this feature anyway and has upped the storage capacity so I can just host them here but that has meant, after completing those pages, I had to redo them yet again. All done now though.

Just as well I enjoy tinkering in HTML!
As I've mentioned previously there's been quite a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff going on but I've taken this Photobucket issue as a reason to go back and check over the entire blog from the very beginning. I need to make sure I'm not still pointing towards images stored there anyway, but it also gives me the chance to head back and update some old posts (namely the Oink! issues themselves) with any of the information which has come to light since that I've covered on the blog, so it's a smoother reading experience, as well as adding active links to any issues which were referenced at the time but which were only covered at a later date. The idea to make the whole experience of reading through the Oink! posts as seamless and as easy and enjoyable as possible.
This doesn't mean I'm ignoring the fact I've other new posts eager to get published though, as you'll see soon.
