Random Pics...from around the web

Just post pics from the web that strike yer fancy.

I, personally, am limiting myself to one post per day.

If my device is connected to the Web, then isn't it part of the Web?

So you're hotlinking.

If you mean using IMaGe tags, then yes.

Yes, but not necessarily the images...if they're stored on your device's HDD. Your Facebook/Twitter/whatever photo library doesn't count either.

Isn't hotlinking frowned upon by pretty much the entire universe?

So, using [IMG] tags is hotlinking, but using [url] and [youtube] tags is not? WTF is the difference, and why is it included in every forum software package (including vBulletin, which powers The Cellar)?

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. You're stealing bandwith from the linked site.

I hot link because it's easier and I don't want to fill my hard drive with whims. Most of them are linked to servers that host images for a living and do not object to it. Downloading and uploading images to the cellar server costs the cellar more bandwidth. It's more permanent though....

What is your official position on this matter, Mr Undertow'd?

10 years ago hotlinking was a terrible problem for us because

words = small
images = big
video = huge (it's actually many images per second)

But since bandwidth has increased worldwide, hotlinked images are not much of a problem for us any more, and certainly not for image hosting sites like Imgur. The only problem with hotlinking now is that we will outlast the other sites and the threads won't be pretty. I like the idea that our threads may still be useful and interesting in 10-20 years.

I have always wanted to fill out the utterly simple image hosting that IotD uses, and make it available to all Dwellars with a nice interface, inside the Cellar security so that your username and password allow you into the image hosting. It could still happen.
