  1. Hi Daniel,
    Thanks again for liking my second post on Florence for following my blog! I love the night pictures of St. Fin Barres! I am sure I will be spending more time checking your travel photos.

  2. Thank you for stopping by my Blog, it”s greatly appreciated. It is still a work in progress, I have much more to post as I am transitioning from Blogger.

  3. Hi Daniel! Thanks for visiting my blog “Eyes to Heart” and liking my post “Milling the Wind …” I appreciate your support … Love Scotland and hope to return soon … Be well, Dorothy πŸ™‚

  4. Hi, fellow “Daniel.” πŸ™‚ You Liked one of my blog posts, so I came here to look. (I see I’m not alone!) Would you tell me how you put the mosaic of social media icon links on your home page?

    • Thanks for visiting, we are certainly now living in a world surrounded by technology, its amazing to see how things have changed this century alone with the mobile technology becoming something we can’t live without.

      • You’re right. It’s amazing that all this tech is based on ones and zeros. As technology get gets ever faster it puts more pressure on people to keep up. Thing is, we aren’t machines. I wouldn’t be surprised if there wont be some sort of cultural revolution in the next 25-50 years due to the demands placed on people by by businesses expecting their staff to keep up with the machines.

      • Things were certainly simpler even just 20 years ago, now with contactable 24/7 the lines between work / home have blurred. Any body working in the area of Computing will have to embrace the idea of life long learning, given the ever changing technology, and unstoppable “upgrade” cycle we have become accustomed to.

      • The learning is fun. The problem is with the demand to be in touch 24/7, the sense that the division between private and professional life is being eroded because technology permits this.

    • Thanks for the visit and comment. I used to be a fairly be fan of Formula 1 from probably the mid / late 1990’s, watching every race of the season, now however I would just watch the odd segment of a race or two. The engineering behind all such motorsport vehicles is quite fascinating.

  23. Hi Dr Daniel – bearing in mind the nature of some of your photography, are you aware of the Geograph website? It may be of interest, it may not. Googling Geograph should bring it up. Cheers.

    • Hi Stephen, I had never come across the geograph website. Just did a search and found it straight away http://www.geograph.org.uk its really amazing, have taken just a quick look at it but will look in more detail over the weekend. Thanks very much for letting me know about this wonderful site.

  24. Thank you for stopping by and liking the cat photo on my picture blog. You sure have some nice videos of the roller coasters.

  25. Hi Daniel, I found your Java 3D Mandelbrot Generator on Youtube, and I wondered if it is available for download somewhere?

  26. Hello Daniel, I want to thank you for the creativity bubble you have provided by putting up the post about 360 & cloning. I need to go back and read it more fully (and follow up on the links) to make sure that what I am envisioning is a possibility or not (I sometimes bite off more than I can chew). Oh, I wouldn’t have found this if you hadn’t stopped by http://allanrichardsonphoto.wordpress.com/ to take a look at some of my pictures (which I thank you for).
