I noticed one or two missing photos several months ago, but now it seems worse. Webshots has a blog in which this was discussed a couple of times.

Second, after review, it appears that all my embedded links still work, so perhaps those things are still being accessed and haven't been killed off as a result. I am leery of Google getting a hold of all my photos since they have become rather Borg-like.

Meanwhile I've spent 2 hours installing and playing with Picasa tonight and it is cool - and I haven't uploaded anything yet either. I kept a nice blog of my any and winter rounds of the 48 plus the odd NE67/NEHH and I'm not relishing editing all those trip reports.
