hi all am trying (dont even know if this is possible) to prevent anybody 
and all from accessing anhy files via http directly

i know the proper syntax for preventing hotlinking

# cat .htaccess
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} .
#RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?mydomain\.(com?net) [NC]
RewriteRule \.(gif|jpg|bmp|mid|css)$ - [F,NC]

but say that you know that i have a jpg at 

i need to prevent anybody from pasting that into their browser and 
getting that image. the above htaccess file aint working, how can i make 
this happen.
