    Manholes – Day 01

    The place where I catch my bus every morning near J.B. Nagar has two manholes. A few months back one of the manholes broke a bit and within the next two days it had crumbled completely. Instead of it being repaired I found stones around the manhole. It did get repaired finally. I missed photographs then, but this time the story repeats. Found both manholes have developed small holes and this time took the needed pictures. Here is the first (the one which broke last time): Click the thumb to view the full pic. And this is the second: If you look closely at the picture, there is one glaring…

    Images, Hotlinking and Feeds

    For those who have subscribed to the feeds on my site may have noticed that instead of pictures loading, you instead have a pale violet image. This is because I have hot-linking protection turned ON. And unfortunately, I don’t think I will be turning it OFF in the near future. For those who don’t know, websites can display an image from another site and pretend to have it as their own. This not only causes loss of bandwidth for the source website but is straight forward stealing! I’ve noticed over time a lot of images on my site, especially those in my reviews have been linked to from other sites.…
