I can't imagine how a photo titled 'orgy' got so many hits!

milo z, Monday, 4 June 2007 20:42 (7 years ago) Permalink

Wait - I just clicked on the stefaniboots page. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That is so wrong and even though I'm horrified, I can't stop looking.

ENBB, Monday, 4 June 2007 20:44 (7 years ago) Permalink

that picture of you grinning on the hotel bed with vic and alex behind you has 2600+ views??????? wtf? for comparison sake the next closest, a picture of me and emily's titties, is 800 views.

mistakenly embedding the html view of a pic makes everyone who looks at wdyll thread bump count

It gets better.

ENBB, Monday, 4 June 2007 20:46 (7 years ago) Permalink

So that's my fault then! Mystery.jpg solved. While we're on the topic, why flickr not have those convenient image urls to pick up anymore? That is what got us into this mess.

"better"

HI DERE, Monday, 4 June 2007 20:49 (7 years ago) Permalink

milo, that's not the picture i'm talking about but thanks for the help.

jon, that is what i figured happened actually but i wasn't really sure!

laurel, they have the img urls but you have to go to the "view all sizes" page or something like that to see them. that being said it never actually works to use flickr's code on ilx, even with the html parser, because ilx seems to refuse the idea that a picture can also be a link (unless that's been worked out really, really recently).

I REQUESTED THE MEDIUM SIZE BUT NO URL FIELD WAS APPARENT TO ME. Anyway I wouldn't use the HTML...? I just wanted the img location.

Laurel, Monday, 4 June 2007 20:52 (7 years ago) Permalink

Right click on the picture pick "view image" and then grab the URL from the address bar. (although Flickr puts a few extraneous characters after the .jpg that you should probably remove.)

Yeh, basically the whole thing of the convert HTML button was to make the flickr links work properly. If you copy and paste from the "show all sizes page" then hit the button, it'll link up correctly.

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Tuesday, 5 June 2007 02:20 (7 years ago) Permalink

I think they reset the counters if they think it's an accident. favourites though? weird.

:D thanks!

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Tuesday, 5 June 2007 02:40 (7 years ago) Permalink

On Nu-flickr they've changed the security settings so you're automatically protected from seeing the dodgy stuff. For some reason, I couldn't see any of my Mum's photos until I went in and changed it back. Maybe it's something to do with that?

"takedown"

river wolf, Tuesday, 5 June 2007 19:50 (7 years ago) Permalink

Vocabulary:
#3: Short for "self-takedown".

Adams Morgan: A God-forsaken area of Washington DC with excellent pizza, overcrowded bars, and weekly stabbings.

Big Timing: Acting very aloof during an introduction or a run-in with another individual. Guys often big time other guys by giving a half-assed handshake or perhaps a firm forearm shiver, never establishing eye contact and saying something along the lines of "Hey guy" or "Hey Fella" or "Hey Doctor." If a girl ignores you or runs away from you in a full sprint off of the dance floor, you could say, "That girl just big-timed the sh!t out of me." Completely ignoring someone is also a form of "big-timing."

Black Out Drunk: Originally the stage of intoxication in which behavior is most uninhibited, but due to overuse of the term, this now essentially means that the average LNSer is slightly buzzed.

Budgetmedicines.com: The best website to score boner pills

Christopher Cross Fridays: If you want to post YouTube videos like "Sailing," "Never Be The Same" or "Ride Like the Wind" on LNS, Friday is the day to do it.

Clarendon Ballroom: Turbo central, located in the God-forsaken suburb of Clarendon. The headset-wearing bouncers only grant entrance to patrons who are wearing a combination of striped shirts, square toed shoes, hair gel and jewelry.

Condom: Your guess is as good as mine. Possibly an old, old wooden ship(?).

Courage Cup: A controversial annual polo fundraiser that raises funds to put inner-city children on Scottsdale ponies.

Gettin Money: Self Takedown.

GPFL: The Glover Park Football League. Meets at an undisclosed location in Georgetown on Saturdays at 2 PM. Girls stand on the sidelines drooling.

Hashing: Running while consuming large amounts of alcohol.

Houdini Remix: While dogging it with a lipper in, a lax stick in one hand, and an RBV in the other; switch out your manhood for the butt end of your titanium Warrior shaft and stealthily continue thrusts. After a while, make sounds as if you are finishing and spit chew juice on her back. When she turns around, toss the RBV in her face and shout, “I’m going to go get another RBV! Do you need one!?”

Hyena: A girl that takes pleasure in sabotaging your pursuits. She often disguises these attempts by claiming that she is doing what the girl would want. Hyenas suffer from great delusions of grandeur.

Johnson: The peeter.

MOTDF: "Murder on the Dancefloor" as performed by Sophie Ellis Bextor and one of many unofficial SPDF theme songs.

Only Dimes: A group on LNS which constitutes the most attractive girls on the website.

OPHJ: Over-the-pants-hj.

Pearl Harbor: A questionable maneuever in which one expresses deep love and affection to his sleeping partner.

Poundtown: The magical destination where deals are closed.

RBV: Redbull Vodka.

RCDF: Rugby Cafe Dance Floor.

Ron Burgundy Jr.: Brian Hilton Kelley (BHK).

Scanbot: Beep beep.

Shoukri: The no-nonsense bouncer at Saloun who is known for his selectively friendly treatment of patrons and his slippers.

Smoke: A grossly overused term to describe an attractive LNS member.

SP: Smith Point.

SPCY: Smith Point Courtyard.

SPDF: Smith Point Dance Floor.

SPWC: Smith Point Water Closet.

Stephen Martinko: Famed Smith Point bouncer who modeled himself after Patrick Swayze from "Road House".

Thursday Throngs: Parties held at Smith Point on Thursday nights from 2002 - 2004. This was before the time of Thursday night charity events and superfluous door fees.

Tucker: Opposite of a Turbo. This word is not to be used on LNS under any circumstances.

Turbette: The female version of a turbo. There has been great debate about whether or not one can date a turbette and successfully immerse her into the Georgetown social scene. They are known for their cheap clothing, tacky belts, tramp-stamp tattoos, acrylic nails and glitter makeup. Nevertheless, turbettes can still be extremely attractive.

Turbo: An overly aggressive individual who enjoys sporting cargo pants, striped shirts, square-toed shoes, jewelry and hair product. Most turbos hail from Va Tech, and other northern state schools and generally migrate to Ballston after graduation. They can be found at Clarendon Ballroom, Clarendon Grill, Mister Days and other Arlington hot spots. They also feel right at home at McFaddens. "Turbo" is not an economic designation, although they put most of their money into their souped-up rice rocket Honda Civics. While related, a turbo is not the same as a guido.

TYL: The Young Latino, aka: User Numero Uno

USFB: Under-the-skirt-fb.

Wonkette: The DC gossip blog run by goth-hipster hybrid Al3x Par33ne, who was the motivation for Todd Cleary from Wedding Crashers.

Yeast Oven: A maneuver that occurs when a woman has a yeast infection (either from taking antibiotics, aggressive FBing, or from being just plain nasty) takes a guy home from a bar, and once she has him in her bed, she pulls the sheets over his head, trapping him in a veritable oven of pure overbearing stench.

Young and the Guest List: A random assortment of people with rich parents and others who go out too much, honored every year by Washington Life Magazine.

lesson still pertinent:

Two graduate students, intrigued by a growing wealth of material on the Internet, built a huge fucking lobster trap, absorbed as much of human history and creativity as they could, and destroyed all of it.

probably worth exporting yr entire flickr archive into some cloud somewhere, just in case.
