A Tiny Favor

I want to ask everyone who has a website of their own to do me a little favor.  Take a moment to read about hotlinking.

The very short version is that hotlinking is inappropriately using an image off of someone else’s website.  It’s not a good thing to do.  It is an easy thing to do accidentally (and with no malicious intent) if you’re not all that comfortable with setting up and managing websites.  I happened to notice someone was doing it with one of my pictures yesterday (likely by accident and certainly with no malicious intent).  Since it is such an easy thing to do, and since lots and lots of folks have websites these days, I thought I’d do a little public service announcement and send folks to a nice clear explanation of what it is and why and how to avoid it.

Back to your regular knitting content (complete with finished objects) tomorrow!
