I was using Fototime for many years, a paid subscription, and they went up in smoke. All my photos on Blade Forums are gone. We're talking over 15 years of images I have posted in here. Everything. This thread, the Bob Cargill Cripple Creek thread or anything else I have posted. Everything...

I am not sure what year it was he wrote it.
