Hot Stuff

Access Denied

The owner of this website ( does not allow hotlinking to that resource (/images/igallery/resized/7001-7100/039_Gul13_on_Sea_0868-7013-800-600-80.jpg). (Ref. 1011)

I see (Icons passim) that the action pictures I posted of Ben didn't work because the owner of the site does not allow hotlinking. I'll fix the post when I get five minutes, but I wasn't aware such a feature could be implemented.

Noodling around I see that URL Rewrite would let us do it programmatically in IIS.
IIS URL Rewrite 2.0 enables Web administrators to create powerful rules to implement URLs that are easier for users to remember and easier for search engines to find. By using rule templates, rewrite maps, .NET providers, and other functionality integrated into IIS Manager, Web administrators can easily set up rules to define URL rewriting behavior based on HTTP headers, HTTP response or request headers, IIS server variables, and even complex programmatic rules. In addition, Web administrators can perform redirects, send custom responses, or stop HTTP requests based on the logic expressed in the rewrite rules.
I had also never heard of URL Rewrite. I will forward it to the Burglar as I imagine there are all sorts of things we could do with it.

Prodnose: Why are you telling me this?

Myself: Chicks dig it.
