AWS S3 Expiration issue

Almost all the images live in AWS S3. Many of these URI tokens expire 1 hour after being generated. A link can be checked whether it's expired because the Expired parameter is a timestamp after which it will not longer be valid. Where this is particularly problematic is the thumbnail URLs. Any webpage that contains a thumbnail image, those images need to be grabbed in the next hour or will be missing and can not be repaired later.
