Image leechin'

SpindleyQ's picture

The image of the trainwreck on the front page ends up ranking pretty highly in Google Image Search for the word "Trainwreck", and so I occasionally get morons who hotlink the file and slap it up on their myspace or blog or whatever. One such douchebag has now done it twice, as he re-posted a blog entry from January. It's still on his front page.

I'm thinkin' I'm going to replace the file with this:

Maybe with the words "Andrew Halco Is A Weiner" coming out of Peter Mansbridge's mouth.

I'm not actually mad about the bandwidth, but come on! At least have the decency to steal from Wikipedia, like I did.

I just pulled the trigger, realized I misspelled his name, googled him, and found out he's fucking president of Avis car rentals and ran against Sarah Palin for governer of Alaska.

Reverted until I can think of a more clever caption than just calling him a weiner.

Let's see how long it stays up! Andrew Halcro's bandwidth-leeching blog.

Edit! I've attached a screenshot of our first political endorsement, in case he takes it down.

cuberpunk subculture

The only two examples of Cuberpunk I can think of are Chinese Office Plus and ROBODROID. If you go with the former's definition, it's cyberpunk in a cubical farm or office scenario. If you go with the latter definition, it's just poorly done cyberpunk.

NUTS I just went back to see Chinese Office Plus and I'm realizing that this version of Vista and KNP might not get along so very well :-(

Vista runs KNP just fine!

Vista runs KNP just fine! It's 64-bit Windows that has a problem.

DOSBox + Windows 3.11 + KNP totally works, though! Just install the graphics and sound drivers as described in this helpful guide. (I used the S3 drivers for my graphics; there's a little bit of screen corruption occasionally, but nothing that actually gets in your way.)

Glorious Trainwrecks does not advocate resorting to piracy to feed your Klik & Play habit, even though Microsoft would not see a dime from a copy of Windows 3.1 you bought on eBay.

that is an excellent photo.

(incidentally for some reason i first pronounced it with a soft c (as in "sooberpunk") and it never occurred to me until now that there could be any other way to say it)

I just noticed that he ended his blog yesterday, so if he doesn't notice the new image, it'll be up there basically forever! Which is a cause I don't mind donating bandwidth to in the least.

However, I'm sure someone will tell him eventually.
