Am I "that" popular?! I'm a little pissed, man. I'm not payin' for bandwidth on a free site.
Anyone with this issue come up with a free solution?
Yes, a 2nd photobucket account.
If you have a PC at your house that is on 24/7 ... you can easily host it yourself.
I'm at about 50% capacity on my Photobucket.
The only problem I have is that anything downloaded/hosted there is 'dumbed down' in file size, making large prints useless from those files. It's about time to get a terrabyte storage device.

use tinypic.com or flickr
What about Google? I've never been popular enough to run afoul of bandwidth with them, but they give you a lot of space and users can get full rez photos.
This made me curious as to how many times my server gets hit with picture request just from BF.
Over the weekend I had just over 100 requests for pics (only have five pics posted here in the "post your rigs" and "saddle tilt" threads).
As far as user-agent info from the http requests .... Firefox wins by a landslide as the most used browser with Safari in second and Chrome and Internet Explorer trailing from there.
Also, TwitPic, too.

I'm with Dan. Second account/username tied to a different e-mail.
Geez, Ed, as much silly crap as I have squirreled in mine and I've only used 13% of my storage and less than 1% bandwidth.
