Thats Mr Smartass, thanks

I was told I couldn’t post a photo to an internal discussion forum, because the photo was copyrighted and we weren’t allowed to distribute copies.

So I wrote a quick embedded Java applet which downloads that one photo from the original web site every time someone opens the document, and displays it inline. I put the applet in my posting instead, end of problem.

Once again, stupid legal restrictions waste resources…
