Most EV groups hibernate all winter but not ours. The Albany Capital District EV Drivers had not one, but two meets this winter. On December 29th we caravanned through Washington Park's Capital Holiday Lights festival. It would have been great to have an i-Miev join us.

Then on January 26th, we were invited to the Madison Theater's EV Expo night, that featured the screening of George Pakenham's "Idle Threat" documentary, which deals with enforcing the 3 minute curbside idling law in New York City. We had six EVs in attendance, a Ford Focus EV, a VW E-Golf, a Honda Fit EV, a BMW i3, and two Nissan LEAFs.

Photo bucket has changed their policy and now demands $400 for what they call 3rd party hosting service. Linking to a photo from a different site.

Unfortunately this seems to be the case for me too , all the photos that i"ve linked to in the past from Photo bucket have been blocked .
This has caused a lot of problems to many forums , E bay , blogs, etc.

Too bad this will greatly affect the quality of many posts.
