We are redesigning our website: making
navigation more user-friendly, getting rid of experiments in web-design
that didn't really 'work,' and taking some images that attracted too
many hot-linkers offline.
Some people don't realize that copyright laws apply to the Internet,
some people don't understand that 'linking' to someone else's images to
use on their website or blog is thievery... and some people don't seem
So... 'bandwidth' theft and other abuses were getting serious (a
webserver has to pay for data transfer, equipment, electricity, and a
lot of other things), and we've taken some things offline right
It takes hundreds of hours to redesign a website, which means there are
going to be some broken 'links' for awhile: both from the search
engines and - unavoidably - a few broken links on this website.
(That's why you're seeing this message - because the file your computer
asked for isn't there - either it's been moved, or taken offline.
If you're one of our many wonderful visitors, thank you for your
patience while we redesign. We've put up a
help you find what you're looking for, listing some of the most popular
and most interesting parts of this website.
(And, if you're one of those other
folks, wondering what happened to that image you hot-linked, well...
you know who you are (and so do we - you may not realize it, but every
webserver keeps track of every 'referral' and - looking at the server
logs - knows
what websites and
blogs are hot-linking. The image you stole might have disappeared
from your website - we 'blocked' it - but if the hot-link's still there
on your web-page, your website is recorded in our server logs.
You should probably re-do your web-pages and take out those hot-links,
