My birthday

Happy Birthday to me blah blah blah. So it is finally my Birthday for another year and it is a special one this time. So far we have been partying and clubbing pretty much since Saturday night and the excitement is continuing. We have had trouble convincing some people of my new found age, maybe it is because at heart I still act like a kid. Who knows and who cares really!

I havent been doing much on the site for the last two weeks or so, concentrating on other work commitments, but obviously I keep an eye on things most days and have a look at the new members and any new messages that are posted etc. I aslo once a week go through the server log files to see how many people are coming to the site and what they are doing on it.

Bandwidth Theft

Something that has increasingly been annoying me over the last six months is those people that take advantage of the site and in particular the pictures on the site. I have been horrified to find out that a very large amount of my bandwidth has been stolen by a few message boards linking pictures form my site. What happens is that instead of copying the pictures themselves and storing them on their own server they simply link the filename directly from Superdrewby, thus stealing bandwidth. Now I am a pretty patient person and I put up with a lot before I get annoyed, but it has now got to the point where some message boards have actually linked to every single one of the gallery pictures on one page. So I end up paying for the bandwidth while people don't even come to the site.,/p>
Now if you are one of these people I kindly ask you to delete the links now, and if you want the images then copy them to your own server, don't steal my bandwisth. I pay for Superdrewby out of my own pocket, and I also pay for bandwidth, so basically you are stealing from me! I will be sending a standard email to every site that I find doing this requestion that they remove the linked images, then I will be replacing the scripts on my site with a new feature.

This feature will show, instead of the image they think they are getting an image that Says Please do not Steal Bandwidth and a request for people to visit Superdrewby.

Online ettiquite is very important and I uphold the best of nettiquete for all users of this site. I request that other people do the same!
