    New Tag: Find Signage Overkill. Think anyone could have missed that this was a dead end street?

    I actually ride through Honolulu every day now but since photobucket went to the crapper haven't been able to find a suitable location to put images for hotlinking to the forum. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Spurred by this talk of photo storage and by a recent burning by photobucket I decided to try AWS (amazon web services) their S3 service (Simple Storage Service).


    Here is my first image hosted by amazon, this is me caught on google streetview in Toronto.

    No sign-up fee and they also give you a free Tier ,

    AWS Free Usage Tier
    you can get started with Amazon S3 for free. Upon sign-up, new AWS customers receive 5 GB of Amazon S3 storage in the Standard Storage class, 20,000 Get Requests, 2,000 Put Requests, and 15 GB of data transfer out each month for one year.

    My understanding is that it wont cost me any money until I exceed the above parameters, or one year elapses. Even then, at worst i am only expecting this to cost me hundreds of pennies! (fine print: i could be totally wrong)


    Here is a summary of the pricing (seems to vary based on which server you want to store your data on) Here is a link to the page with the pricing https://aws.amazon.com/s3/pricing/

    Summary :
    • first 50 TB (terrabytes) of storage will cost 2.3 cents per GB (gigabyte) per month, stored on AWS
    • GET requests (ie your photo is displayed) are billed at one cent per 10,000 requests
    • there is probably charges for uploading, i just got sick of reading and am not too worried about the costs, they appear to be reasonable
    I could be totally misunderstanding this so I hope one of you effing F's will do some reading and let me know if I am totally off base

    I'm not totally sure how this works, and it's geared towards developers, but it was pretty easy to get going I had my account opened and figured out how to upload a pic and make it public in about 30 mins.

    Loose guide, and i may have already forgotten some steps that i did. (if anyone tries this and wants to make a better guide and post it , please do so)

    1. I opended a AWS account, used my advrider handle as my company name, entered my credit card info
    2. Logged in and navigated to the S3 service
    3. Created a bucket for my ADVrider stuff
    4. Gave the adv photo bucket a tag so i can track it's expenses, in case i start using AWS for other project also, in the future. (i think)
    5. set bucket to public, ie anyone in the world can access (Grant public read access to this bucket)
    6. upload a pic to that new ADVrider bucket
    7. made that pic public

    Also I am playing around with their new budgeting feature, I think i have set a limit of $1.00 per month and set up an email alert if I am foretasted to exceed my budget.

    Eventually i will start to fix some of my old posts with the farked up Photobucket links by uploading the pics to this new AWS S3 bucket and correcting the post links.

    Bump. No one? Bueller?

    Let's make it easier -> overkill of anything you want. I'm sure we've all had too much of something at some point.

    Mine would be overkill of paperwork due to increased health and safety at work... 20 mins paperwork for a 10 min job:beccabut the paperwork to get my motorbike on site wouldn't be worth the photo...
