    Beautiful... Congratulations on deciding on making Scotland your permanent residence might as well be a marriage proposal.

    Good luck with those Scots though, Sturgeon seems bat shit crazy!

    I've got a pal in Edinburgh I'm due to go and see, so might shout yous for a visit sometime.
    If Biden is the answer... what the fuck was the question?!

    The Scott monument in Edinburgh is 200 feet and six inches tall and has sixty-three stone sculptures standing on it, mostly characters from Sir Walter Scott's books and poems, which were made by multiple famous stonemasons.

    The design was the winner of a contest, the winning designer/architect used the Harry Potter-esque name of "John Morvo" Morvo was in fact George Meikle Kemp, 45 year-old joiner, draftsman, and self-taught architect.
    Kemp had feared that his lack of architectural qualifications and reputation would disqualify him, but his design was popular with the competition's judges, and they awarded him the contract to construct the monument in 1838.

    Made of Sandstone and contains a staircase where the public can climb to the top during open hours.

    Also, Kemp never got to see the completion ceremony. He fell into the Scottish union canal [connects Falkirk with Edinburgh] -in thick fog on his way home from the work site, just a few months before completion and drowned. His son stood in his place.

    Now, now, let's not get all too excited. How many of those views are yours?

    I used to admin a vbulletin forum and I'm pretty sure the pagecounting PHP code is pretty solid. I don't think page reloads and refreshes count. Spiders will account for most of it though. I think they generally outnumber the users. A lot of these pictures have been taken from posting them here. I see them on wallpaper sites etc. They're probably hotlinked too, but I don't bother even checking the logs. My hosting is unlimited space and bandwitch.

    Dang, and I thought I was getting an invitation I'll probably have a hard time saying no.

    With regard to selling photos, I think the smart thing to do is to focus on the higher end places that don't under sell, like Alamy, or some other place that isn't under rewarding and then anything they reject can go to Adobe (assuming they don't reject it too) so they can sell it for pennies on the dollar.
