Latest post of the previous page:

thedoll WroteColonIt was all over my inbox and log-in email page. I didn't particularly mind, though- aside from passer-by thinking staring, of course. ;) It's all in testing.

Well, it shouldn't be doing it anymore.

/div WroteColonOh yes- congratulations, you all are quite far ahead most webmasters.

Well, this is something someone else passed onto me, and it's also been an issue that bothers many site owners, especially fansite owners.

Users don't realise the kind of strain it puts on the people who run the site, because their bandwidth increases quite substantially. This in turn can mean increased running costs, as many people have limited bandwidth and have to pay for excess usage, plus it also means that some of the bandwidth the site has is being used to run little bits of other people's sites, rather than being used for the main site itself. Kind of like taking out some of the gas in your car and putting it in someone elses tank... your dime but nothing of yours runs on it.

Just blocking this doesn't make me ahead of anything else, I found a site that told me what to do, and PreZ helped me with the rest.

So... how much of a bandwidth drop has seen since this has been in place? It's been almost a week now. :)

Curiously, the images on the opening site were replaced by the flashing warning for a short while. The site works fine now, but it was quite a surprise to see the entirety of flashing and yelling at me for stealing images from it.

Was any testing with them going on, or something like that? Just curious, and passing on the information in case it turns out to be relevant.
