I always liked things easy, but the time has come to make a decision between Photobucket and Flickr. I have finally reached the limit of both the free accounts. Flickr is limited to 200 pics uploaded then it blocks pics, then photobucket has a limitation on bandwidth. Photobucket is easy to upload to with Pixelpipe but recently its been shitting itself as much as Facebook. Facebook has such a sluggish picture gallery, especially when ur trying to show ur pictures taken from a camera. I aint talking about a simple one or two pics or 40 .. i am talking serious pic gallery like .. in hundreds! Facebook often shats itself inside out when someone does this.
So now i have switched sides, I only upload to facebook coz people would want the photos. But for blogging purposes, i rather stick with flickr. I also upgraded the account so i have full features for 2 years =3 Flickr can be uploaded using Windows Live Photo Gallery as a plugin. Its similar to iTunes, dragging folders into your library then just click those u need uploaded. I found it less messy and easier to identify the pictures it has skipped and failed to upload. Enough bragging with the wall of text .. the result of me using Flickr and making a massive gallery about the 501st Legion experience i had in Malaysia, promoting ADIDAS Star Wars products!

My armor suffered some minor injuries, like velcro falling off due to the hot weather and sweat. Then i also lost one of the ABS pieces used to cover the rivets on my belt. I so knew that was going to happen sooner or later. Hot glue was dodgy anyways! But i had tons of fun!! This was strictly a 501st Legion activity, so seriously .. no otaku business at all >_< .. but that didnt stop me from having fun!
Meeting up with Solomon Freeman, based in KL. Recognized member of DannyChoo.com >_< Could never resist this post when near another otaku! Teehee!
In this adventure of the unregistered 501st soon-to-be otaku trooper, i also met new friends on the way..
- Yew Mun – Young Anakin Skywalker from Episode3 at Comic Fiesta 2009 and the ADIDAS event
- Trooper Peter – Person responsible for helping me get into this ADIDAS activity and keep in contact with the Malaysian 501st
- Solomon Freeman – Otaku comrade that was in both Comic Fiesta 2009 and ADIDAS event, i like thinking of him as the only Malaysian Dancing Trooper! Also known as the Salaryman Trooper!
