    Thanks in advance for your response.
    Sorry it took so long to reply! I'm on the trot, right now, going from airport_to_airport. Still several hours from home...

    I'm not sure where I got that wall, but TinEye is showing: http://love-hotel.jp/sysimg/cms/100516103250_da7c3f.JPG

    Wherever I got it, I worked it over with GiMP, so...

    Hrm... let me check my Dropbox... nope, don't see it in there.

    Anyway, if you can't find a larger image, let me know, and I'll attach it to a thread in the Cafe, when I get back home, to my desktop box.

    VinDSL, thanks for your response.

    Using the URL you provided, I've searched several hundred pictures of cable bridges in Japan as yielded by searching in Google Images, searching on "cable bridges Japan" and "cable stay bridges Japan", but without success. I've also searched on "cable bridges" and "cable stay bridges", again looking through several hundred images, also without success.

    So, if you can provide any further suggestions after you've gotten home, I'll be very grateful.

    Thanks again.

    VinDSL, after considerable further searching, I've identified the bridge as the Meiko Chuo Bridge, Nagoya, Japan. (The name translates as "Big Central Bridge".)

    But after further searching for images of that particular bridge, I haven't yet found any with beauty comparable to the image in your desktop.

    So I'll eagerly await further information after you've gotten home.

    Re: seeking advice on web hosting company

    VinDSL, many, many thanks for your help.

    I now have that gorgeous scene as my laptop wallpaper.

    (BTW, I see that you're in Arizona. I grew up in Tempe in the 1930s and 1940s, when -- believe it or not -- the population was only around 2,500.)

    Re: seeking advice on web hosting company

    My pleasure!

    Thanks, for performing the forensics.

    I wondered about the name and location of that bridge...
