This is great Max. So fast! I could see all the photographs without spending a fortune.

I thought earlier that Faldage is a man. It is nice to know he is a very pretty woman.

Didn't you say, in another thread, the you were short and round? It seems to me, if the person in your picture is really you, that you are only older than I thought.

... which brings one to the inevitable US'ns vs y'all*. (or as the old song goes, "I say tomayto, you say tomahto"). Indeed, the website provider's server is probably down. I wish patience to all.

Avy, Faldage is a good-looking man. For a Hall of Mirrors kind o' guy [ahem]

How about some more photos from those of you who haven't contributed yet? BTW, AnnaS, I realise you were in disguise. No hominy, only grits!

Max, I had no problems with Netscape 4.75. (Or IE 5.5) It shows the picture gallery just fine. Always a problem with that kind of page to decide how wide to make it; how big a screen does your audience have, and how much scrolling will they have to do? It is fine for me as it is, but some viewers may be screen-impoverished.

On my Netscape browser the pictures are now three-by-three, instead of the previous one on top of the other. Looks good!

This will take some organising. Go to shops, buy film, use all of film, get film developed, scan photo, send it to Max. Aduh*

OK, OK! I'll see what I can do [echoes Bingley grump]

This weekend I went to a production of Fidelio at Glyndebourne, so got misel awl tarted up like a pengwin (thought of you, *girls!) I may end up with a usable photo from one of the relics. BTW, one of the national papers included a comment in the review about DJs being the 'last vestige of costume of the British upper classes' or some such crack - I laughed, basically agreeing, but nevertheless bit on the protocol for the sake of the *girls in our party. Takes an effort to get me to wear a suit nowadays!

The only picture I had at hand was the one I used to advertise my motorbike thus she is the protagonist.
By the way, I haven’t sold her yet. Max, remember, ten percent is yours.

Sparteye, so where's your picture?

I'm with the luddites. The technology involved in photographs alone is almost overwhelming; the uber-tech involved in sending an image across cyberspace is beyond me absent an attentive bench coach. Maybe when Capital Kiwi drops by, he can talk me through it?

And what about Jackie???

I have one of those scanners that came with the computer package. Tried reading manual ... HA! ... so far have gotten one picture into the computer ... no idea how to send a photo onward. Ohhh, maybe my cyber cafe ???? !!!
And if I have success and it scares you to death , well, you asked, nay, begged for it.

Just as an aside, a friend recently returned from a trip to Italy where he asked about availability of Internet Cafes only to discover from an Italian that in Italy the public access places are called Internet Points ... in case you're travelling.

Luddite Unite!-- Actually getting a digital pix is not all that hard--or expensive.

Take a picture with your favorite camera (a disposable, a 35 mm single lens, a PHD camera (push here dummy--automatic) using you favorite film (the ones on sale!) and then take them to any reasonable place-- your local photo shop, Costco, Kmart, Walmart..

and for an extra $5 (US) get the entire roll on Disks! (usually 2 floppys for a roll of 24--) for $10 you can get a CD cut-- but i usually find i don't really want to save all of the photos--only about half-- so why pay more? Its easier to edit floppies.

Each floppy come with a "Kodak Photo viewer" so you can see "thumbnails" (small images that load super fast-) and then click on the thumbnail for a full size image.

the kodak disk images (JPEG's) are easy to use-- and you just "Mail" them like any other attachment--(use the Paperclip icon... look on A: (your floppy..) and your on your way!

the same images can be used for "wallpaper" or screen saver images...

the real trick is to be in front of the camera!

Max's new web site has a "mail to" option.. you can mail your photo to him...

If you need more detail directions--send me a PM (meanwhile, i have spend all my time behind the camera-- so I don't have any ready images.. but I bet Max could find one.. (hint-- there are image of me posted elsewhere on the net--not my doing.. I did mention my son was a webmaster didn't i? and he is not the only one who has plastered my face in cyber space.-- really does any one need that?)

Great site, Max! My Netscape gets it fine! Curious how often the images we create through the personalities we sense through the interaction of words seem to resemble reality quite closely in most cases..."in most cases" being my safety valve here! (Watching Sir Paul McCartney on Larry King right now, God I'm getting old) Of course, my present state of computer savvy doesn't permit me to contribute just yet (thanks, of troy, for rendering that last excuse irrelevant with your crash cyber-photo course! ). But, of course, I could never go before Jackie posts hers! (there's my out!)

To put words into Jackie's mouth (or PC or whatever):
"I'll get my picture took just as soon as I can find the bow to my cupid costume, sweetie!"

Now don't disappoint us Jackie!

Oh, AnnaS ! Such a pretty lady .... And the box of grits had me grinning ear to ear!

I sent my picture off (courtesy of the local Cyber Cafe) at about 3:30 p.m. EDT, and there is that time difference that I can't figure out offhand.
I'm sure it will be posted as soon as MaxQ recovers from the shock, re-sets all the clocks in his house, and has the time!
(running for cover, all dressed in "camos.")
wow

Those aren't onions. They're the ends of shoe strings or pull-strings for a jacket. If you look at the top you can see the braided threads. I'm not quite sure what that has to do with the name maverick, though.

And Max, is there any logical order to how you've arranged the photos? They're obviously not in alphabetical or chronological order.

Don't feel bad, b96. I've always seen them as onions too. (Well, shallots or leeks, really...)

But I can see the shoelace interpretation now that you mention it.

One way or the other, give it up, Mav!

I looked at the site again, after you changed it, and the picture I had seen saying maxq now says rodward, and maxq is by a picture that hadn't been there before, so I now see the source of our slight confusion at the beginning of the thread.

Well, now both CapK and Maximus have had fun taking a 'leek' over my picture! What a shame that in all my mongrel mix of blood (which does include bits of English, Scandinavian, and a little Jewish I think), there is actually no Welsh stock - so the patron sainted vegetable of Wales is pwobably more appwopwiate elsewhere

But I will see if I can get my techno head around the logistics of this challenge quite soon.

I still can't see wow's picture.
