    I link to your post in my post, and I’d especially appreciate your thoughts in the comments there if you’d care to share. Thanks!

  2. Hi there! Thank you so much for the pingback, although my post is really sketchy. I am still a blogger in training, therefore I tend to be very concise…Your blog is excellent and I am privileged to have my “thin” post mentioned there, I will read the whole Kodak post and get back to you with my comment. Keep up the great work! I.
