  1. Interesting thought Wim and not a stupid question at all. I always set my laptop when I change time zones, or return home. But always to the time zone I'm in. With my small eruption image, it coincided with a little "hiccup" in the seismogram. Which I'm watching all the time as we are hoping not to get stranded in Bali next week when we're due to go home. We've already had our plans thrown into disarray after having to re-schedule our October trip due to Mt Agung activity and our hotel being in the danger area. Then finally being able to go when the danger level was downgraded but being evacuated due to the first major eruption after just 8 days of a month stay.
  2. Yes Mickfly, time & date correct for my time zone in Bali and I also noted in the caption what time the image was shot.
  3. Thank funkyworm, but now I'm not sure whether to send any more eruption images (assuming Mt Agung spits again). It's still making headlines around the world. Anyway, I'm going to contact CR and have the image deleted as I processed quickly on my laptop, and never as happy with the result as I am with the monitor on my PC.
  4. This has just happened to me. Definitely newsworthy, a small eruption of mt Agung, taken 10.30am Bali time yesterday and uploaded within 1.5 hours via Live News. AIM showed on sale, but this morning not in News and now in QC queue.
  5. TV transmissions.
  6. Museum Display, searched by common name & 2 binomial names as recently reclassified (I had both previous and new) & licenced at the same time. Also interesting that of 6 images that showed for the search, there were 4 images not even related in any way to this species. Just badly keyworded.
  7. Why Alamy for generic RF?

    Most micros have some kind of restriction on use. So, depending on use required, it can be cheaper to buy the file from Alamy rather than a micro. On the rare occasion that I get a commission of >$100 on a micro, I wonder why the buyer didn't look for the cheaper option, if it is one of the files I also offer via Alamy.
  8. I did some tag tweaking in AIM, and whether coincidence or as a result, seem to be licencing more older images. From 3 November to 1 December I've had 7 licences. One image ID started with an E, One with an A and 5 started with B.
  9. How was your November?

    6 sales for $319.96, ranging from $3.41 to $192.68.
  10. Good way to start the month

    No calendar sales for me, but one sale for a museum display @ $255. Very nice indeed.
  11. Best value sale for quite a while, and recently zoomed
  12. Favourite images uploaded in November 2017

    I hoped I'd never have to see this, never mind take photos......we were evacuated a few hours later. Many of our friends stand to lose everything.
  13. I often spend an hour or more....and that's after I've ID'd the subject and check for re-classifications. Sometimes I take a week to get an ID from museums or experts.
  14. Having to sign in twice?

    Chrome is a big problem for me too.
  15. Having to sign in twice?

    I can't sign in at all on Chrome, on Opera it took 4 tries and a million captcha's ..........................help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
