Hotlinking

I know gaming sites are anxious to find out what the banner countdown is for and appreciate a bunch linking to both sites. However, please, do not hotlink to the image.  We are trying to troubleshoot server lag.  Darknemesis, who created the CMS, disabled two functions that were eating up server memory such as the headlines table above. There is still some lag, and hotlinking could be somewhat part of the problem.

When big sites hotlink an image it eats a lot of the bandwidth and stresses the server with so many connection requests. Don’t steal my precious! =)
