  1. Hi there,

    When you link to flickr images, please respect the photographers by linking to the image page rather than directly to the jpg.

  2. Arnar,

    Yikes! And ugh :-( Didn't even think about that. I'm in the middle of a Twisted Python sprint, but when I have some down time tonight, I will dig through my Firefox history and find the page links for the artists.

    Thanks for cluing me in about etiquette for photographers on flickr -- much appreciated... and apologies for the faux pax.
