Weekend update: Other things found this week:

Note at least today the logos are back. I got some good suggestions in the comments from Jack Smith, who recommended posting the photos to flickr. I did try posting them to Yahoo! photos, but the addresses there were dynamic too, and I think flickr does the same thing. At any rate, I now have the photos on a separate Earthlink website, so I think they'll be stable now. It is time for me to do a redesign, and this nearly made me do it immediately...still thinking about it, though.

I've been posting lots on the recent tragedies in Pakistan and Guatemala on my Herald blog, but a couple good collections here for journalists:

    • Hey Liz,

      Flickr photos don't have dynamically-generated URLs, so you can use them for background images.
