Whenever you post pictures that are directly from Otto's website, you are almost always making him pay more money.

Why is this?

Simple. It's called bandwidth. (Stop giggling.) Bandwidth is offered in limited quantities for people who own domains, and have to pay more when it goes over the limit. And when people post pictures that are directly from his site, he usually has to pay more money.

How can you avoid this?

Save the pictures to your computer by right-clicking on them. Upload them to webshots.com, or any free webhost except...

Angelfire.com
Geocities.com
Tripod.com

.. and a few others, so make sure you test it first.

Thanks :D

Thanks for posting that, yeah. And really, people probably shouldn't be saving Otto's pics and uploading them to their own webspace anyway. If you've got a picture of his you want to share, throw up a link to it.

And is it asking too much that people could use the <lj-cut> feature a little more? I may have DSL, but I'm sure there are people out there who don't, and every image that has to load on the main page is just going to take that much longer to show up. Do people a favor and stick it behind a cut tag.
