I only get 2 gigs a month so you can see how angry I got when three quarters of my bandwidth went poof. mahldcat, I did see that idea on the net, but when the main part of this cluster was going on, I was in process of driving back to North Carolina from Arkansas. I just didn't have time to do anything super sneaky. I do thank you for your idea, though. Its nice to see folks from /. saw my post and actually tried to help. Speaking of, I should check that article again. W3bbo,

mahldcat,

I did see that idea on the net, but when the main part of this cluster was going on, I was in process of driving back to North Carolina from Arkansas. I just didn’t have time to do anything super sneaky. I do thank you for your idea, though. Its nice to see folks from /. saw my post and actually tried to help.

The idea is that you configure your web browser (for the particular website to use php/asp.net/ to handle requests for images (gif, jpg etc)....and set to fire through one central script/dll/executable... First step would be to merely have this script look for the real image and then pass it through whatever is set up as the a web response. Once that is working, this should give you further control...e.g. you can do things like examine the fields in the requesting http header...and filter based off them.... As a really sneaky idea...log the full referring url and for the first few times, send the real image, but after say 4th or 5th request, instead start sending some horrible image from rotten.com or some other site... Hope this helps.... …I handle many of the web applications for my company (a Microsoft shop), and this was a problem I had researched at one point…the solution I found was more ASP.Net/IIS centered so I’m not sure how to do this on apache/php…
