The Crisis is Over

Production Note From Prehistoric Insanity

The Google related crisis here at The Tyrannosaur Chronicles has been dealt with. We paid their content related ransom, and bought the additional storage.

To help raise funds for this in the future (we were thinking of doing this anyway) we'll be likely coming up with some Traumador/Dinosaur merchandise. Ideas include T-Shirts, posters, and possibly models/action figures! (There's a slight chance we'll have access to a prototyping machine later this year! At the same time don't get you're hopes up too high for these just yet...). Let us know if you'd be interested in any of these or others.

As for all the supportive comments left by our loyal readers, thank you! We appreciate the helpful suggestions too, and though there were none google means of storing pictures these are not as convenient or time efficient as the built in google uploader. Again the problem was caused by Traumador's high picture saturation (We have over 3000 pictures on this site!). Sadly other solutions add about 30-60 seconds a picture, which when the average Traum post has 10+ that eats up blogging time in a hurry. Especially given that Traum's current return to Drumheller has some 500 pictures just itself!

Once again we apologize for the delay this has caused, and hope you enjoy future Traumador stories in the year to come!

I sincerely didn't know we had to pay for extra storage space. Ok, it's not that difficult to figure out but I hadn't thought about that before.
I just hope they won't add more limits in the future.

Yay! Glad the crisis has been averted, even though Google are now even richer and you are poorer :(

I'd definitely buy merchandise, traumador action figures!!!! Or a t-shirt that says "eggnant" or something along those lines.

Good to Hear!!!!!!!! Although, if Google has more limits in the future, I'll cut my ties with them pesonally and permanently!! :( That wasn't fair to you and why do we have to pay for pictures? That's stupid!! They can get money some other way!! Sorry you guys had that issue. Can you still post pics? I'd love some Traum merchandise, by the way. :) "eggnant" LOL!!!
