I have been asked to create a shirt for a High School music group that is going to Disney World to do a show, and I thought using your image (in its silhouette form) would be great.

I have designed the shirt around your image's silhouette, please let me know if that is ok with you, and what you think about that being on a shirt from Disney's copywright standpoint.

I can easily email you a proof of what I plan to make, just let me know.

Image modified[edit]

Hello, I have slightly modified your File:Network_Time_Protocol_servers_and_clients.svg, suppressing "stratum 0" indication, according to what I found in RFC1305:

Following conventions established by the telephone industry [BEL86], the accuracy of each server is defined by a number called the stratum, with the topmost level (primary servers) assigned as one and each level downwards (secondary servers) in the hierarchy assigned as one greater than the preceding level.

Red-Green color blind[edit]

I was wondering if you could change the color of the arrows this image [1] to something other than red or green. It is a bit hard to discern for the color blind out there! Thanks! 15:49, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I've updated the image, hopefully it's better now. Cheers, bdesham  19:24, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Picture usage[edit]

Hi, Bdesham. I've added several of your images to the Wikitravel article on Epcot. Very nice work, and thank you for releasing them under a free license! Powers (talk) 01:18, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Hello BD Esham. I love your photos of Space Ship Earth at Epcot and will use the one posted on the Wikipedia entry for SSE (Epcot) in my commentary on the Appendices in my Complete Book of Changes that will be available at Scribd. The SSE is a geodetic sphere consisting of 11,520 isosceles triangles. This is the total number of operations for generating all possible hexagrams in the Book of Changes. Thus SSE is a precise 3D model of the entire Book of Changes in the shape of our wonderful planet. Thanks, and you and your mom keep taking great photos. Douglass A. White

Countries driving on the left or right / indonesia[edit]

In Indonesia traffic drives on the right side.

According to [2] and the article right- and left-hand traffic, this is not the case. If you have a couple of reputable sources that support Indonesia driving on the right, please add them to that article and make a note at File talk:Countries driving on the left or right.svg.

Hello, Bdesham!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.
