Photo Linking Fix

Shortly after the big server rebuild a few weeks back I was examining the web server logs and I noticed that several sites were stealing bandwidth by linking images from the Photo Gallery directly into their web sites. So while I was rebuilding the web server I implemented a very common Apache mod_rewrite recipe so that these bandwidth stealers would get a very different image than the one they linked to — nothing gross, just the pic of me playing the ukulele that I drag out every now and then.

Well, apologies if you accidentally got that photo when you were trying to print your Photo Gallery pictures through Shutterfly. I hadn’t thought about that, but it’s fixed now.
