THE INTERNET IS DYING! :O

First they tell us we're running out of oil. Now, we're running out of THE INTERNET!

*cries pixel tears*

Internet could run out of capacity by 2010

That's in just two years, if we don't start saving some cash and clearing out all those old emails:
A flood of new video and other Web content could overwhelm the Internet by 2010 unless backbone providers invest up to $137 billion in new capacity, more than double what service providers plan to invest, according to the study , by Nemertes Research Group, an independent analysis firm. In North America alone, backbone investments of $42 billion to $55 billion will be needed in the next three to five years to keep up with demand, Nemertes said.

People like me will have to tighten our belts a little. Maybe I don't need those 12 blogs, even though I only use two or three.
I'm going to do my part and clean out some of those hundreds of quirky yet never used photos in my photobucket and other online image storage accounts. I think my main photobucketfolder is 36 pages long and growing, and I have no idea how much more that amounts to with the 20 to 30 subfolders:p

Here are some samples of never before linked images from the bowels of jkthunder's online image archives. As you will see, these are largely Star Wars related...Except this one of course. Because I thought I might need to use a picture of anime dragon with flame tail someday!

Leia, Leia, Leia, Leia, gun, gun, gun, gun.

Strictly need to know basis

I love Sanda (click for awesomeness)

Okay, okay... so I've linked to these before. W00t? You haven't seen all the Star Wars Pixel Mashes? Ah, well I better post em, since I have about 20 different versions of these saved. Ep 4 above.

Ep 6

Nintendo ownz

This is tiny, which is prolly why I never used it. LOL - but it still makes me giggle

Also tiny. Poor kitty! Mean Obi-Wan!
Star (Wars) is just like Us! ;)
(C'mon - admit you've read these in waiting rooms)


Reason 1 why you shouldn't let pictures of yourself get on the web: you might get caught in a Battle of Geonosis reenactment!
(and people like me will use those pictures when they get the chance)
Which I break the law with in the next one...

Believe it or not, this is really a Princess Leia costume for Halloween - courtesy of my mother's imagination. I think this one is staying ;)

That's just some random picks from a few pages of my photobucket folders. A final thought before this closes:

- Love and mushy stuff, xoxoxox - jk*star*thunder

Those are all so fun! The interwebs better never run out of such awesomeness.

Cute pics! :)

Bah. I don't think we'll run out of the internet. It's just a nasty rumour. ;)
