Oh ... Really?

Me so bad! Or… fun with hotlinkers

A stroll through my web server stats showed me that someone is, again, hotlinking to one of my images. I have the main image directory set up with htaccess, but apparently, I forgot to do one for the Coppermine gallery (which is nearing its demise, now that EE has its own photo gallery). So... I just had to fix this right up.

The hotlinker this time, is a forum participant. I have no idea what it's about because it's in French. No matter... with the help of Babelfish, Google images and a few minutes with Paint Shop Pro, I had a suitable replacement image. Suitable, that is, if you have a vicious evil streak, like yours truly.

The stolen image is that of my kitty Faith, caught mid-yawn... I titled it "Laughing Kitty" and it's one of the more popular pictures in the gallery. What I replaced it with is a different sort of pussy altogether... along with a stern admonishment both in English and French. See it here... or check out a screen shot of the page here.


I am SO bad! Heh ...

The forums still show the original image, and your image 404s...... I wanted to see the new one. 😉

LissaKay's avatar I fixed the link to the screenie. I see the replacement pic on the forum with both browsers I have here at work, Firefox and IE6. I have heard from some people that certain security tools will overcome or block htaccess files. Try refreshing the page...

Other than that *shrug*

LissaKay's avatar I guess I am hallucinating then. My co-worker is too. Must be something in the water. When I get home, I will see if my son is hallucinating too.

Is anyone else having these hallucinations too?

LissaKay's avatar I'll bet they are using page caching... I have my browsers set to refresh pages on every load, which may be why I was getting the new image. Those htaccess files can be more of a pain than they are worth sometimes...
