    Re: Lunar Distance in Wikipedia

    I'll be happy to incorporate the illustration into the article.
    The Wikipedia folks try to make sure that Wikipedia only uses images it is
    permitted to use.  If you are willing to share the illustration freely,
    could you upload the illustration using this link:
    This should be easy, especially if you use a high-speed internet connection.
    I just tested this out with my traverse-board illustration
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Traverse_Board.jpg) and it was easy.
    After I loaded the image, Wikipedia left me on the illustration's page, so I
    could copy the URL from the address line and include it in this email.
    If you email the URL of your illustration after you upload it, I will
    incorporate it into the article.
    The other alternative (me uploading the image) involves forwarding of
    emailed testimonials, and seems to be a bit more bother.

    considerable talents?
