I hope you make a speedy recovery! At least you didn't break a hand or something to keep you from playing. I broke my right hand twice within a year several years ago. It was horrible! Only one plus came out of the experience... I'm quite ambidextrious now

It means ya posted a direct link to the picture instead of copying it and posting it from your own server.
When you hot link to other peoples photos, every time somebody loads the photo to look at it, ,no matter where it is on the web, it costs the original person money in bandwidth expenses.
If too many people look at the photo, the person who originally put it on the web can have their web service cut off for the rest of the month if the amount of downloads goes over their allotted amount.

It's called bandwidth theft. It's like tapping into somebody's phone line to make long distance calls, or shoplifting merchandise. Some sites are fighting back by placing big 'theft' signs in place of the pictures so that everybody knows who stole the picture.

When you want to post a picture off the web, first download it to your own computer and then upload it to your own server and link to it from there.
That way every time somebody looks at it, it costs you money instead of the original person.
