Default photobucket alternative? or my own server?

since photobucket broke the internet im looking for a new img hosting
and it also crashes all my browsers all the time because of too many scripts
but then again. dont want to be in same position with another img hosting

what are you guys using for image server?
are there just basic servers that are cheap to own so i can use it as a personal file server and to link my pictures to the "evil 3rd party websites"

or use my desktop as a file server? or even my router that has the usb dongle server option. can that be used as a file server outside of my home network?

another thing is can i set up an email server that is not yahoo or google based server?
is there such thing as a completely personal email?

I HATE FIREFOX!!!!!!!I don't care if its what you use!!! I use IE and will continue using it...
(64 bit win7)(6gb dual chnl ram)( Gigabyte EP43-UD3L)(Q8400-2.67ghz Core2 Quad)
(120gb SSD 840 PRO)(4 tb WD storage)(GeForce GTX 650Ti (GV-N65TOC-2Gi)

All depends on what you want to do. I keep all the old things from over 10 years ago on Photobucket but I don't upload to it anymore. Most people use imgur but I just retain my own photos at home. Keep them on an external on my PC then have a cold backup on my NAS.

Try imgur?

And yes, you can setup your own email server.
Try this mb:

I use cubeupload, it's pretty stable and if you sign up (free) you can get a custom image link.
