Shalom Shai,

I am here from your comment on Michael Hoffman's blog.

I feel very lucky to have the kind of name I do. Aside from everything else, it certainly makes it easier to achieve a high Google ranking.

I have a lot of friends in the blogosphere with great work, but who are hard to find on search engines because of this-- even when you search for them by name.

Let's consider ourselves lucky and thank our parents as well. :)

Great blog, I'll be back.

I love what you've done with the site! Great colors and great pic at the top. I also like the slight modification to the site name.

Less important: I love solving the math problems before commenting. It makes me feel bright!

Hi Peter, Thanks for the

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the kind words. On point number 1, the theme is an open-source Drupal theme developed by roopletheme. I customized and simplified it. I mostly light text on dark, except for photoblog sites. This site has a bunch of photography, and, on whim, thought I'd give it a try.

The image is mine, from a set I call "Winter Sunset" taken last February.

Glad you appreciate the math problem. There have been two spam comments that got past it. This is considered a pretty low level of spam protection. Hope that doesn't make you feel worse:) How do you feel after failing to read those bizarre/illegible image "captchas"?

Again, thanks for stoppin' by.
