After noticing that I had a bandwidth thief about a week ago, who was appropriating the image you see to the left, I mulled over what to do about it. Frankly, bandwidth thievery doesn't really affect me, considering that I've kept my website on the University of Florida's Computer Science Dept. web server for going on ten years now.
Indeed, the image itself is something I found years ago, and I modified slightly to fit in with my pages, so I can't really be all holier-than-thou with the image piracy.
Still, it rather bugs me that someone decided to simply hotlink an image on my site without even bothering to ask--especially when it would have taken no effort at all to download the image and stick it up on some free webspace site somewhere and link to that.
Having ignored it/forgotten about it for about a week, tonight I got the inspiration to rename the file and point the original name to this
Jeez. I'm an asshole.Current Mood:
