ImageShack sucks

I had used ImageShack free image hosting service before and was utterly disappointed. It does work for most of the time, but they often have downtimes or periods when your images take ages to load, if at all. And I don't mean they have 95%+ of uptime, oh no (else I wouldn't be complaining) - it's more like 70% or so. The worst part is, of course, putting hosted images on your websites or online forums and then finding out that they are slowing down the page for every visitor..

Alternative? Buy some cheap hosting package that offers unlimited or big amounts of bandwidth and a reasonable amount of disk space. That's all you need to worry about if you only want to host pictures.

ImageShack is not as fast as it used to be. It was one a great site, but now it's not an option. I use
http://jpeghoster.com and it's a super site ! Check it out , you won't be disapointed.

They also use browser traps which are common on porn sites, but Imageshack should not be behaving like one.
