hi,

just looking at my webstats and found this url:
http://www.thai.net/thaidb/code/code2.htm

it has other db users for example uwdesign.

the question this thread is about do you like people linking directly to your files and not telling you.

cheers

nah, what you do is you make sure they come to your site first.

e.g. you use a file mask program and only poeple from your site can d/l it.

i wouldn't mind, as long as its being downloaded and most of the time when people have a problem they'll have to cometo you anyways.

however it is just common netiquette to let a person or company know when you link files ... but as Martyn said, can just lock the files for direct access only
i've seen alot of users do it with plain html, but i'm still unsure how

you also gotta note though, you don't speak Tai - and they might not speak english ... might cause a problem language wise for asking permission. They should atleast be crediting you which they kinda do, and the descriptions are pretty good for them
