OK, I did that, but I had to retyp the link in Domain, not in the URL box, because when I did that the "flash" extension that was there reappered after typing the URL (Copy-paste did not work there).
The results are that I do not get a message from AVG anymore that the connection with coinhave was discontinued, so I hopefully can assume that it was established. In other words cody, your suggestion works. Thanks a lot.

Thanks Cody, I can get as far as clicking on the icon, (Adblock ultimate 2.28) but nowhere the "options" button appears. Where do I go wrong?

my AVG free is picking it up and disposing.

Allan

so does mine but it is quite irritating, and I have a feeling that even though it has been picked up it has not been disposed of as it still manages to slow my computer.

Oi! Pieter. Who are you calling a "really old" photographer? LOL  Grin

Bob, Ken Smith....

Captain Ted,while I do agree that some old shots were not taken by the uploaders, there are some really old photographers around here, that did take pictures in the seventies and the sixties even. When they were shooting a site like was not even dreamt of, so they now finally have a chance to show them. And the effort to transform them in a digital format is not a small one, so I actually think we should be grateful that people go into that effort, rather than complaining that there are so many old shots on this site.

As far as Shipnostalgia is concerned, one of the great setbacks of that site is the small maximum size of pictures that can be posted. And BTW is you go to SN, you will find that a lot of photo's there were taken very recently.

The implication of the question is that you can only post shots of ships that are still afloat. This measn that I have to keep track of my collection in the sense that when a certain is being reported as gone for scrap I cannot post it anymore.

In essence: Every ships on each photo was spotted at least once by somebody. Does it matter that the ship no longer exist? Or even does it matter that the photographer is no longer with us?

And BTW Captain Ted, I do care about the site, but I am not a shipowner. If shipowners want photo's of their vessels they mostly hire a professional photographer anyway, or get pictures from the shipyard for instance taken during trials.

I think we already have MORE than enough categories

I think what is meant is a topic on the forum, not a new category for photo's

Ages ago (pre-digital) I went on a boat trip with the Port Authorities. The port area is vast, but activities were/are quite spread out. I cannot tell you how it would be when having to rely on shore based photography only.

just for the record, the Sonatrach ships sold to Turkey are LNG tankers, not LPG.

Yes Vlad, I just counted, I have well over 20000 folders of different ship names, (not counting my old analog stuff). The date is an in-built feature of any shot (supposing you have your camera settings right) so I see no point in sorting them according to date. If I understand you correctly organising by date will need to rename each individual shot, rather than just keeping the camera number. I think I am saving a lot of time by throwing each shot of a ship into one directory with the proper name of the ship (adding IMO number to that name could sometimes also be useful), without having to rename all of the photograph. I suppose you, like me, also take significantly more shots than one of each ship you see.

And yes, I have two back-up hard discs as well.

Vlad, having to deal with 43 different ships is wonderful but it does not change the principle of how to organise your files. I personally still keep a file of each different ship I take a picture of, which also helps me to easily file shots I take of the same ships on another date. (I cannot always remember whether I have seen a ship before or not, so i already have file for the ship when I take a shot for the second or third time. Keeping your files on websites like marine taraffic or this one, is bound to end in tears one day, as you cannot control the operation of those sites.

Vlad, after downloading the shots to a harddrive, the first task should be to put all shots of each particular ship into a separate folder, named after the ship and with the imo number added. After that you can follow up with processing, selecting etc. Where the name of a ship needs to sorted out you can temporary store these pictures in a folder marked: "unknown"...

Hi Pieter

Re "A category should be based on WHAT the ship is, not WHERE it is. This approach would also imply that for instance  "casualties", "ships in drydock"  and "storm pics" should no longer be continued. I would not be opposing that. "

If your suggestion was adopted, how would you suggest dealing with those vessels now categorised as Inland Vessels?

simply as inland vessels, i.e. everything that is not seagoing..
