We always try to use pretty pictures in our news updates, but one negative side-effect is that they get hotlinked from various other sites. Then we get stuck with the bandwidth bill while getting nothing in return. For many years we've put no watermark on our images whatsoever. Unfortunately the time has come for a change. These wallpapers from Standoff are among other hotlinked files being used across the internet. In the future, you will be able to tell when an image comes from the CIC by our new, nonintrusive watermark. Let us know what you think.
