Thank you Tyler for all the "blood sweat and tears" you have put into this forum. I have learned a lot from belonging to this forum. As for the childless trash that is throw into this forum every once in a while- I am a big boy and I know garbage when I see it. So I guess what I am trying to say- Don't change to much-I like it as it is. Thanks again Tyler.

Although I work with a PC computer there is no denying that Jobs had the vision that brough the personal computer to the world. It was because of what he started , i can do things on my own computer that use to take a room full of plotters and machines to do. He though "outside the box" and had the passion and the "stick-to-ism"to bring about what all the experts said wasn't possible. though Jobs and Gates where rivals where cut from the same cloth. It was their competitiveness and visions that brough us so far so fast.

Warren-Glad you are enjoying your trip. Having lived in western Montana,Oregon and Washington most of my life,I sometimes think we take all the scenic beauty for granted.

Hi Warren- glad you final made it to Glacier National Park. Sorry about the rain snow and cold-but that is Montana. There is a saying around western Montana-"I miss summer this year -I was sick that day". Hope you got some great photos

Hi Lisa. I would like to add one more option.
Because of things I learn about Getty from another age( yes I am that old) I never join Istock.

I am sorry, I mis-voted. For some reason I missed the Pentax box. So the "other" vote should be removed and placed in the "Pentax" box.

I voted, but I really shouldn't have as I am afraid my RPD will skew your results.My RPD for April so far is $10.35 with just 2 sales( of the same photo).But it does show how skewed statistics can be when taken over a short period of time. Also since I have only 128 images on dreamstime,it doesn't take much to get a wide swing in my numbers. So to be accurate you should knock off one of the above $2.00 votes. I am sorry, just jumped in and voted before I though.

Thanks Tab62 for having the courage to ask the questions I have been afraid to ask.As I often tell my flight students-"there are no silly questions".While you get many different answers there are "gems" hidden in some of them, that you can use.Some of the answers remind me of old crusty pilots who forget they where not born with 10,000 flight hours.

Merry Christmas and a great New Year everybody!

Thanks for this very informative survey. It is very helpful in planing future actions. Thanks also for taking the time from your busy schedule to complete it.
Smiling Jack

I have just two goals for the coming year:

 1. Since i am approaching 85yrs- to keep breathing.
 2. To keep flying and make money taking aerial photos.
