    Dear Nina, the photos are in jpeg format and the larger one is only 37KB big, so there shouldn t be any problem. I am not familiar with Internet applications

      Dear Nina,

      the photos are in jpeg format and the larger one is only 37KB big, so
      there shouldn't be any problem.

      I am not familiar with Internet applications on Mac, but it is
      unlikely a cookie problem. Still, you can check your security settings
      in FireFox. Alternatively, you can try to access the photos using the
      OS X's default browser Safari.

      I can also email you the photos if you send me a message offlist.

      metta,
      Yong Peng.

        Dear friends, in response to a request from a member. I have uploaded the .kmz file for the satellite image. This file can be used if you have Google Earth
        Message 3 of 11 , Jul 20, 2006
          Dear friends,

          in response to a request from a member. I have uploaded the .kmz
          file for the satellite image. This file can be used if you have
          Google Earth installed on your computer. What you need to do is to
          download the file from the Files section, and double-click on it. It
          will launch Google Earth (if the program is not yet running) and
          load the satellite image!

          The file is located in the "Google Earth Club" folder at
          http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Pali/files/

          Alternatively, the tech-savvy guys may like to create their own .kml
          files (which is the text format of .kmz files), as follows:

          Once again, I like to remind everyone that I have not been to these
          places, and the coordinates that I use are the closest I get from
          research on the Internet. I believe that the image pinpoint the
          locations with a high level of accuracy, but I still stand to be
          corrected.

          Google Earth is available here: http://earth.google.com/

          Members who are into Google Earth, and have other interesting and
          related images, are welcome to share their files with us. Please
          make good use of the "Google Earth Club" folder.

          Hello Yong Peng, Thanks for the pictures. Its nice to see those places again as I was there (Lumbini, Kusinagara) last year and will be again in Lumbini from

            Hello Yong Peng,

            Thanks for the pictures. Its nice to see those places
            again as I was there (Lumbini, Kusinagara) last year
            and will be again in Lumbini from this September to
            April next year.

            But this mail is about the fonts program file, if you
            have a minute. I need pâli font for no other use than
            looking up the PTS on line dictionary, as the number
            of positive searches is much diminished when I use
            plain roman characters.

            Among the different font programs you list (Gentium,
            Akkhada...) is there one you advise more for that
            specific use (just typing in the PTS dictionary search
            field) ? Do I absolutely have to download the keyboard
            file as well ?

            I would also rather like one that is compatible with
            the Velthuis transliteration system.

            With Metta

              Yes it was very nice to be able to meet you in Brisbane and have some
              interesting discussions about Pali language. I was also able to meet
              John Kelly during the weekly sitting of a meditation group in Brisbane
              as well.

              It has been a bit difficult for me lately to post the solutions to
              Buddhadatta's exercises but I hope to be able soon to post them on a
              more regular basis again.

              Message 6 of 11 , Jul 23, 2006
                Dear Jacques,

                any Unicode font is theoretically suitable for as long as they
                contain the glyphs for the ranges Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-
                A and Latin Extended Additional. See this page for more information:
                http://www.tipitaka.net/forge/forge.php?article=unicode

                I have never used a Pali keyboard file, so I can't say much about it.

                metta,
                Yong Peng.
