Always a popular thread at the other place.
I'll kick this one off.
It was my birthday the other day. I was expecting a bottle of my favourite perfume (I've been dropping hints I was running low) and woke up to a Land Rover Freelander on the drive. I've always wanted a 4x4 and now I've finally got one courtesy of my Mum and my Significant Other Half.
Okay, so it's not a new one and it's not an all singing, all dancing model, but that doesn't bother me. It's a freaking Freelander, dudes!
Mine's a white soft top like the one in the foreground.
Downside - I'll have to fund my own bottle of smellies. Oh hold on - there's Mother's Day coming up...
Gratulations to you, Michael and Christa.
Well done Michael and Christa!
Congratulations, Michael and Christa! An excellent achievement, and many more to come!
20000 downloads for me ;-)
Lately the number of daily downloads on RGBStock is really high. Are we gaining popularity? :P
Congratulations, Michal! Very well done!
Great numbers, Michal! Congratulations!
Keep 'em coming Michal. :D
Somebody is downloading all my images that was downloaded eight times before. Weird. Do you have the same?
No such luck here...
Michal, maybe they are downloading from the random images? I don't know the magic number to get there (it might have changed), but that could explain it.
Nope ;-). Right now somebody is downloading all "fives".
I looked at this yesterday, it took me some time to figure out what was going on.
Someone in Spain on the Orange, I think mobile network, was downloading the whole week. They stopped.
They used some tricks we didn't check for yet, but we do now.
At the end of the day, I think all we can do is discourage them. Never completely prevent it.
Thanks for investigation. I think they are back ;-). But maybe they are just making a local archive? I think they are not the rippers because they work manually...
It is obvious they would come back, we can't prevent people from downloading. I mean that is the whole point of the site, people can download ;-)
I think my new code has a bug though, but I've not found it yet.
Seems to be solved.
The bug was in a different place than we expected.
I wish I had done it sooner though.
We'll have to see what happends with the downloads statistics.
I finally bought a cell phone. Not a smart phone but one I can make phone calls when I leave the house.
I hate mobile phones, but I have to have one with my job. You'll wonder how you managed without it eventually.
The little device is driving me bonkers just trying to set up the options.
It is "What's annoying me now" but I can call home when away from the house!
I still don't know how to use mine. I can't text messages. I can barely find any messages sent to me. It's just not natural to have so much technology beyond a certain age. And I'm clearly beyond it.
I hate the predictive text on my mobile phone. It predicts anything but what I actually want!
Warmer weather is sending us sprinklings of sunshine. Getting the pool ready for a raucous season.
I bought a new Canon 60D body. Should be a big improvement over the older 30D I have now.
Congratulations Chris und lot of sunshine for the pool season.
Chris, tell me more! I am planning to get 60D this spring. And I still do not know if it is a right decision. Is it really worth its money?
