  Been sifting through my site stats a bit and found that a lot of my downloads are being hotlinked by various sites.  In other words they link directly to my files so it appears people are downloading off their sites instead (at my expense).  Not only is it my file, but no one but me has my permission! :mad:

  Went through and added filters to disable people downloading from my site at other sites.  It shouldn't affect you if you come to pftq.com first and download (rather than clicking the download link from an outside site).

  If you are being affected though, please let me know.  Still toying around with this method, so it may block some people who are legitimately just downloading from this site.
