Hmm, I'm not sure, maybe I slept through that lecture at geek school, but shouldn't an included picture residing on a different server not not burden the bandwith of IP ? After all. all the offending html-snippet asks the browser to do is to fetch a picture from another server and render it. It seems to be common practice for other professional web-services to distribute images and actual content across several distinct servers and ask the browser to put it together, exactly to lessen the workload on each individual server.

[update]Yup, just did a quick check off what happens during loading this page and the image is fetched from 'img.photobucket.com', so unless some real arcane magic goes on loading the image should not interfere with the bandwith of IP. Ethereal is your friend. *g*
