    Welcome to iRez Os!

    haha, finally we have a photographer not in the UK or North America!

    Go Asia!

    haha… of course… since you’re in Hong Kong… I guess all of our photographers are still “UK & Former Crown Colonies! ” 😛

    Anyway, we’re expanding and we’re so excited to have you be a part of our “World”

    I really love Lamma, it’s such a tiny, beautiful island adventure. Even though your arrival is a little touristy (how much do I love that woman who drags you in her shop and makes you buy huge necklaces of raw amber! 🙂

    Once you pass thru the little “arrival town” it’s a tiny, hilly island where the weather changes so many times from sunny to rain. You can actually hike across the island, have an awesome dinner at the other ferry port, and then catch the boat home from there.

    Along your hike you’ll keep trying to decide if it’s going to pour or not and if you should turn back or not and you’ll probably end up going for it and you’ll probably end up getting soaked but the sun will come out again and dinner will be amazing and it’ll be one of the most memorable days of your life.

    Hey Os, this is a little wacky! 😛

    I was setting up links here on iRez so peeps can get to your stuff, and it seems like you somehow have 2 different WordPress / Gravatar ID’s:


    Possibly it’s because you haven’t set up your Gravatar yet, I’m not sure.

    As you’ll see, the first link works, but the second one doesnt… and that’s the one it wants to use for you.

    Anyway, maybe you could drop by Gravatar and take a peek.

    It’d also be nice to set your Gravatar up — you can put any links there and maybe a photo – then in the author box on all your posts, like the one above, peeps can see your info, and if they click it’ll take them to your gravatar page where they can get to your blog or any other websites you like.

    LMK if you have any questions.

    Thanks again!!

      HI Vaneeesa, will do, I’ll look at it this morning.

      Hi Vaneesa, please check. I went to gravatar and updated it. Hope it works now. Let me know.

        Hi Os! Well the great news is that instead of that colored blob, we now have your cool photo as your “gravatar” 🙂

        But it’s still “crossed” somehow. If you look to the author grid in the column just to the left (or at least it’s on the left today, haha, I might move it to the right tomorrow)

        Anyway, you’ll see the little grid of 21 author pix, yours is the newest on the bottom, but if you single-click it, you’ll get a 404 error.

        Somehow, Gravatar bug or something you did with usernames, IDK, your “fotofranca” and “osishmaelnikon” addresses got crossed. I just asked about it in the WordPress support forum, so hopefully someone there can tell us how to “uncross” the wires:

        Meanwhile, it’s awesome that you got your photo and bio on Gravatar. You might also want to link your blog there (and you’re welcome to link the iRez blog there too if you like) so that if people click that author box up above… they can get to your gravatar, AND get over to your content.

        Thanks again for joining us!
