Allan Grinshtein's PingWire is addictive.
PingWire is an (almost) live feed of images being posted to Twitpic. Clicking on a thumbnail will take you to the full sized photo.
It’s either blocked or it’s killed the twitpics server..
now giving a 502 error.
this website is interesting. Your screenshot is awesome because it has the lead singer of my favorite band, All Time Low, in it.
so weird, I was zenning on twitpic homepage last night, and then I think, heh this is what the nsa spooks do… all day, ekk.
It would be better if new images would simply draw over old images from left to right, top to bottom. The whole grid scrolling for every update is irritating. Other than that—SWEET!
You could try http://picfog.com instead. Same shit, different wrapping.
Site is too slow!
A picture of a naked eight year old is not porn. It’s a picture of a child with no clothes on.
so now, people will be posting a pic on Twitpic, just to see when it shows up on PingWire. moebius…
yup, the thumbs are now fail and clicking on the links gives you a 403 forbidden. but if you paste the link into a fresh window it works. so twitpic is blocking the site based on the referrer
a shame. I love picture aggregators, being a photoshopper. they are great for when you’re looking for inspiration
So … many … bewbs …
Seems about 1 in 12 are pix of someone’s cat.
it’s been blocked…
Finally a substitute for my addiction to the random LJ-image generator web pages!
oh man… i didn’t need to see that full-armed adult pleasuring action. despite that one thing, this site is actually kind of cool!
@Heatmizuh – Welcome to the Internet.
ok, now how do i funnel this feed into my desktop background?
And a new channel for spam is born.
I don’t care what all y’all say….Cleavage NEVER gets old!!
First pic I saw:
inundated with porn spam in 3…2..1…
5th pic in, large boobies. 20th pic in, Asian porn. Yep this is the internet.
This got old really fast.
I can see this getting to be an addictive procrastination technique quickly… Load site, refresh, go awwwww over the cat pictures, rinse and repeat.
It wasn’t your typical pic of a naked 8 year old on the beach. It was disturbingly seemingly intentionally sexualized.
I clicked just to see how many pics until I saw a boob. 5 is the answer. But surprisingly none since.
Didn’t take long to start seeing repeats.
I wonder how they determine what the ‘newest’ are.
Hmm… After seeing what looked like a naked 8-year-old, I think I’ll stop looking at that now before the men in the black vans come and take away my computer.
This story needs a “Warning: Contains Kiddie Porn” on it.
