After looking at traffic coming to thesellery.com, I noticed that many of the requests were for a desktop picture that I made a couple of years ago. It’s a picture of the San Francisco skyline that fades from the olden days to 1971.
The original 1971 version is available on Brad Templeton’s website.
[update] After googling around a bit, I found this page. It offers a MySpace theme ready to copy and paste. Guess what the background image is? Guess whose server is being used to host that background image? Chances are that there are quite a few MySpace pages that are linking directly to this image, which would explain the steady hit-rate for this image that I’ve noticed over the past few months. I’m seriously thinking about telling my server to redirect requests from MySpace to something that’s not quite so G-rated :)
