Bloody Grand Final Rugby Football Fever!!!

So it's Friday night and I prepare a tasty meal, turn on the television to catch up on the latest news headlines.  What news headlines!   

Bloody sport has taken over!  The latest football news.

The Grand Final qualifier match -  the Roosters against the Titans.  Football fever is everywhere except in my living room!

Thank the airwaves for the ABC!

Is footy really the most important bit of news in the world today!!

We Aussies - I must be a lonely standout - have an obsession with sports of all kinds.  Sports news, sports shows, four types of footy - AFL, Rugby (league and union) and Soccer. 

I don't have anything against sport on the whole as it is great to be active and keep fit and healthy and being in a team you learn how to cooperate in a group which is probably a good thing.

My whinge is the amount of time given to sports in the media.  It's even more annoying when the main item on the news is sport.  If they didn't do that I'd simply switch channels when the sports news came on.  Often more than one main news story is sports related or about a sportsperson and the drama of injury, bad misbehaviour in public, money paid by clubs, corruption, etc etc, ad nauseum.  Keep all that 'sports' stuff in the sports section of the news.

Well at least now I've had a whinge I can settle down.  I will do a channel surf to keep up with who wins the grand final qualifier because that's probably all anyone will be talking about tomorrow and I need to know who won and any major dramas of the match but meanwhile I'll be watching ABC and Waking the Dead - much more interesting!

Photobucket Should Be Called "PhotoF#ckIt." "There's A Hole In The Bucket"

I am absolutely furious at the fact that if I accidently delete the wrong photos from my Photobucket web albums there is no way to restore them.

Surely technology has the ability to create restore points or undelete features in programs or have a Recycle Bin - such as Windows has - or a deleted photo files folder on Photobucket.  Such a basic feature!!

Also the layout of 'All Albums' page view sucks!!

If you create subfolders in Photobucket the main folder states it is empty in All Albums view.  Somebody - OK I mean myself - could accidently delete an album which contains many subalbums and hundreds of photos.

YES I KNOW a warning pop up appears asking if you really want to delete etc but the warning is the same for deleting empty albums - it is not extra dramatic to say "listen fool do you know what you are doing deleting 1,266 photos from subfolders!!!!  DO YOU REALLY WANT TO DO THIS!!!"  which would give you pause.

Even if Photobucket had a great warning and you then deleted the photos it still should be able to have them stored in a deleted photos folder so you can ^#(*@$^@*& change your mind!!  And when you have a Pro Account and are paying them to store your photos they should be more helpful.

When I emailed  them I got this useless reply:
"Dear XXX,
Unfortunately deleted media cannot be restored. Please note that if a folder states it is empty this means there are no images in this folder however any folder with images that are in this folder will be deleted as well. Please make absolutely sure you want all of this content deleted when you choose the delete.
Sincerely,
Your Photobucket Support Team"



Attachment I emailed them to show how the Album containing full Subalbums showed as empty in All Albums View!
