Some goit has been stealing my bandwidth (well, Diziet's bandwidth) by using (the original copy on chiark that is) as a forum avatar. So, I have replaced it with this image... If anyone wants to take a copy of that image for similar purposes then they should feel free (but copy, don't link!).
Current Mood: irritated
There are several sites that do that as standard based (presumably) on the presence of an existing HTTP connection prior to the image request. Tis quite a cool strategy, really.
OTOH, if you can get the HTTP REFERRER (I think) then you could find out what forum it's being used as an avatar on and then look for the user to rant at them properly... Except that that requires tuits... =)
