I hate it when people steal my bandwidth

I originally posted an image a while back that apparently has been mentioned in the New York Times, among other places. But the problem is that when everybody searches for "1 Weekend a Month My Ass" on Google, they come up with the image on my site (and I'm sure I'm not the only place that has the image). And then they post the image on their site without copying the image to their server, causing me to have to pay for the bandwidth. Be smart, like this guy, and learn how to put images on your own server. So far about 100 referrals in the last 48 hours from Google for that search, so I'm sure I'll find more people using the image from my server once I look through my logs.

I'm glad that you've found my site, but please save my bandwidth. Thanks :-)

Update on 9/30/03: A full update on all of this, and what this picture has been doing online, and who has been linking to it is available in this recent post.
