omg flickr is SLOW!

holy crap, i can't believe how slow flickr is... it just took me an hour and a half of fighting with flickr to get urls for the 2 photos from the last post... i actually ate my entire dinner in the time it took to render a single page... that's unusably slow... how do people manage to put up with that? and then there are the many, many links which don't actually do anything unless you copy and paste the link location into the location bar of the browser...

my friends tend to use photobucket, never used flickr. why don't you just register a domain and put an image gallery web app up? of course, then you'd have to pay...

and therein lies the rub..

honestly, flickr should be faster... there's no way it would be as popular as it is if my experiences that day were the norm...

as for alternatives - i've used imageshack before and it was ok for screenshots and things, but now that i'm actually taking pictures (crappy pictures still count) i wanted something a little better... and unlike yourself, i'm really not a host-it-yourself sort of guy...
