Apologies!

Hey guys, I’m terribly sorry for the picture that appeared in the previous post.  I found a cover image of the Dreamfall game, and it looked normal when I posted it, but apparently it got changed after the fact to something less than savory.  I changed it, and apologize — that’s obviously not the sort of thing I would ever post on purpose.

    Ah thanks. Accidentally opened that at work, had made a note never to read this blog at work again 😛 Could have been a bad thing.

    Glad to hear it was a mistake… I thought it was.

    I too was discreetly shirking off work and it gave me quite a shock!

    For those of you who missed it – don’t worry, you’re probably better off. I was eating a sandwich at the time >,<

    I’m assuming you just embedded a link to someone else’s hosted image and they changed the image based on the referral linking?

    Always use your own hosted images or make sure it’s from a free image hosting site.

    Taking bandwidth from someone else is– well for those of us self-hosting it has a direct correlation to our bandwidth costs. In the age of free-image hosting sites, this is often ignored, but the old web saying is still true: Don’t be a dick, right-click and save.

    I’ve exchanged outgoing images based on referral myself, although I usually substitute a low-bandwidth image that explains the error. But I have to say, those that use rude images over words probably get their point across quicker. It’s easy to do via Apache and it’s the only defence against that kind of bandwidth theft.

    If it was some other sort of mistake, well hey. =)

    That’s what you get for using the word “quickie” in a post title. 😀

    Makes me glad I usually just save the pix I want to use and then upload em — I wasn’t doing it out of whoopee-substitution concerns, but that’s now added incentive.
