As a side note, for some reason my Digiornio picture is "pirated" from this site about 1000 times a month. It doesnt really bug me, but it does happen.

Clint (03.05.08, 7:11 AM): Just a heads-up, it's considered bad form to link to another person's pictures. This has nothing to do with copyright as much as bandwith. When you link to someone else's image, every time your page is loaded, the browser downloads the image from the other person's site which counts against their monthly transfer. This is a moot point if the image is hosted on a site like flickr (image hosting is what they do), but sometimes people with images on their own site get cranky about this. The best way is to copy the images (assuming they give permission, of course) to your own server and link to them from there. PS: Whether or not I actually do this is dependant on many factors - boredom being a key one.
