Have I arrived? August 30, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 7:18 pm

Someone’s hotlinking me…and eating up my bandwidth. With the laptop down for the count, I can’t just delete my photos and reupload. My hard drive might be toast. So all the pictures I did have may very well be gone. What a quandry.

Sesame Place was okay. Owen didn’t enjoy it as much as we hoped. I don’t see Disney in his near future. We did get him on the kiddie roller coaster and he wouldn’t look at Kevin for an hour and a half. Betrayed. I have no pictures ’cause it is no fun to bring a camera to a water park. I will update at some point with what little knitting I did do on the drive.

So, if you are hotlinking a photo or a button–please stop. Thanks.

Please stop by and see Fran├žoise. Her St. Brigid sweater looks stunning.

    found your blog while surfing. Can you rename your images so hotlinkers’ links will be broken? Just a thought.

    that’s been happening all over the blog world. I’m in the dark – how do you know if someone is hotlinking you?I checked the stats on my bandwidth, but don’t know what the numbers mean ….

    you can still get at your images even if you don’t have them on your computer. if you hover over an image on your blog, right-click it and choose “save picture as” and then save it as a new name. then you can delete the original image and upload the newly-saved image in its place.

    does that make sense? if not just email me and we can figure it out.

    if you keep all the images in one folder, move them to a new folder ­čÖé then you would just need to re-link them at the worst, or move them back once you found out which specific image was eating the bandwidth.

    Greek to me. I can empathize with the frustration though. So sorry. Hope you can get it resolved.

    I’m a little bit in the dark about what normal bandwidth usage is, too. Mine has spiked quite a bit in recent weeks, also. Just what we all need, huh? More time at the computer fixin’ stuff that we didn’t break!

    This is Greek to me as well. I’ve seen lots of bloggers complain about this. I guess I should look at my stats occasionally?!?

    Yeah, I’m never sure if it’s happening to me or not, either… Good luck, dear!
