Re: Test link to Google Photos

Hi Bob I sympathise with your concerns regarding external image hosting sites and the big problems that can be created when they disappear, permanently or temporararily. Your suggestion that some money be collected to support additional storage space is OK with me. But I don't know how the forum hos...

Re: Test link to Google Photos

Glad it worked OK Alan, and the process is simple. Should be a very good option to the other, limited storage, hosting services, and an encouragement to minimize space useage on the forum. Thanks for all the effort you have put into it.

Seems to be working fine Alan. Well done! I tried to carry out a test but have not received a password from postimages - my ISP's mail server is having trouble with passwords right now. Will try again later.

Re: Pollen. There's lots of it about.

Hi Alan It must be just me! I gather John B could see your latest pollen images, but I'm afraid, once again, I can't. Has something changed between the time John viewed your post and the time I did? Have to agree about John Wyndham - one of my favourite sci-fi authors from back in the day. As is ver...

Re: Is this a slime mold?

Well, as the previous posts have made clear, it works fine now, for me as for everyone else :)
No idea what it is, though it's certainly slime mouldish in appearance. The first picture showing the macroscopic view is quite spectacular though.

Re: Fruit fly chromosomes

Can you provide an idea of scale - width of the imaged field or something similar? I measured the pixel distance corresponding to 10 µm on a stage micrometer photographed under the same conditions and then set this as a global scale in imageJ which I used to generate the image below. The nucleus is...

Re: How to study gastrotrichs

Petroleum jelly can also be dispensed from a syringe (the syringes used for dispensing small quantities of glue for example). A small bead, that is a spherical bead, can be squeezed onto each of the corners of a coverslip, which can then be treated as described by gastrotrichman. I got this idea fro...

Hi Alan Excellent! The image associated with the last pollen post is much clearer now :D And a very fine image it is. I always tended to think of pollen as a subject as being a bit boring, but your series of posts and images has got me changing my mind. Also, the post describing the method of insert...

Re: Pollen. There's lots of it about.

Sorry Roldorf... I've misled you I'm afraid. I meant that your photo in your latest pollen post did not appear. Just a large blank space with something like a "No Entry" sign in the middle of it.
Best regards
