    Where do I see the ranks of the various pseudo to understand the level of each one?


    Sorry for the obvious question .. but really I checked everywhere.. :D


    Put BHZ in an image as a supertag and wait for the update so it is active. Then do a search for BHZ. If you do that for each pseudonym you can see which one comes higher up in searches. This is a method started eons ago so we could check our rank back in the days when there were big periodic re-ranks. Now ranking is more complicated and not as likely to change but this should work to see rankings of different pseudonyms. If you are new (which you don't seem to be) all the pseudonyms you use might have a middling rank until you have established a record of sales.



  2. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. I remember how terrible it was to look for a new apartment in NYC. I'm sure you know what I mean, Edo. The Village Voice was the place to look for the inexpensive places and for some reason it came out first in Brooklyn Heights so I would make my way down there from the Upper West Side to get the paper right off the presses. Then the race began. That was decades ago and now I guess you go online to StreetEasy but then the numbers of people to compete with would be huge. And, of course, we have our strange online lottery to try to get a place in a new building that is required to rent to a certain number of low or moderate income people. It happens online but you can find yourself number 746th in line for consideration. Sorry to not be more upbeat. I'll be quiet now in my apartment that I dearly love. So lucky to have it. I hope luck is with you in Galway. It sounds like a wonderful place to live.

    A famous man from Nazareth tried that a couple of thousand years ago, and look what happened to him. 😉


    I like beer. However, I don't drink much of it, maybe two bottles or pints per week. With the proliferation of "craft" and "artisan" beers, the stuff has become quite expensive in Vancouver. I have a weakness for Mexican beers, having spent a lot of time in the country. They too can be pricey due to import costs. Fortunately, President T. has backpedaled on his Mexico tariffs, so I suppose I'm safe until he has his next tantrum. Don't know if you can find Dos Equis or Negra Modelo in Sligo, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are available.


    Me too, John. But it has to be the Dos Equis Amber. As far as I'm concerned beer is food. Not meaning that I have it as often as I have food!

    I bet I know which website that is. I had a couple of those sales before I opted out of Novel Use in April. I don't know why that website is getting these bargain basement deals.

    Early summer in Sligo is cold, 11C as I write this. 

    On the train from Dublin, I spoke at length with a recently retired Sligo City couple. (I seem to have regained 72.6% of my conversational wit. Okay, a matter of opinion). But it is such a pleasure to be able to exchange thoughts with those around me again. The couple told me where I should go and who I should talk to about a furnished rental. 
    I missed lunch yesterday so I went into the hotel bar/cafe in the early evening after checking in. I assumed the food would not be good. I had fish and chips that came with some mushy peas and a salad. The cod was fresh . . . and cooked perfectly. Everything was tasty. So far so good. Fresh fish could make up for this cold weather. 
    This is not a pretty city like Seville. But I knew that. I'll let it be a challenge to me. 


    So lovely to hear a happy tale from you again. I visited friends in Ireland years ago and had marvelous food. Of course, they were taking me to favorites but I suspect the days of food being boring in England and Ireland are far in the past. I think the only food I ate out when I lived in London was Indian but that was long ago.



  6. I am finally convinced that the subscription is worth overcoming scruples but my dentist has nixed it for now. I can't get it for my old MacBook Pro and El Capitan. I was going to buy a new computer this year but now I need a dental implant. I have had one before and they are great. A whole new tooth that will never decay. HOWEVER they cost more than a new Mac. And you can't process pics with them. So the new computer and the subscription will wait until next year when I take my next withdrawal from an IRA. I'm just lucky to be able to do all of this. As Edo says "poco a poco".



  7. I'm not sure what you can see but when you are on your computer go to your dashboard and Alamy Measures. In Your Images you will find a lot of useful information. It will automatically show one month but as you go along you will probably want to set it for Yesterday and then click on your pseudonym. There are columns and if, for instance, you want your zooms to show at the top click on the black bar where it says Zooms and you can put them first. You'll see all the search terms that have brought up your images. I often adjust my keywords when I see that something inappropriate has come up.

  8. We definitely have sparrows in NYC and they seem to be quite fond of the openings of pipes in the street lights and traffic signals. Lots of pigeons, of course. In my garden (lucky me) we get robins, blue jays, cardinals, and mourning doves as well as an occasional stranger. We are on the flight path for migration and bird watchers love Central Park.



  9. I have recently discovered the ability to scan using an iPhone. Go to the Notes app and instead of writing a note click on the plus sign. You will be given an option to scan. I haven't actually used it so I don't know how good it is but worth trying. As I was writing this Sung also mentioned scanning with the iPhone.

    Greetings Betty,


    Thank you for the constructive feedback, I can now see what you mean by only using "literal" tags and concepts, but can I change that now even though they are already on sale? 


    Kind Regards,



    Yes, I frequently alter my captions and keywords. It can be useful to look at your Alamy Measures to see if your images are coming up when they shouldn't.
