This site has over 400 pages, showing around 6000 pictures, often in the form
Its objective is to show my photographs,
many of which are large (100k or more).
It was built to please me; I hope it pleases you.
The text is almost entirely in English.
There are few links to pages outside the site.
It is not a commercial site.
The DaiGlobe section of the site has its own homepage.
You can return to this page from there.
The site was designed for a 1024 x 768 pixel screen.
The pages may not be formatted correctly
if you change the size of the characters;
I designed fixed layouts with fixed font sizes.
which is used on almost pages (even including this one!).
I have tried to make the pages work under Firefox, Safari, Opera
and Internet Explorer but occasionally there may be problems.
You can copy the photos and scripts, but please don't use them
commercially without mentioning where they came from.
Who is Dai?
Just another person who has had the time to make a website!
Born and brought up in the English Midlands,
most of my working life was spent supporting the system software of
NCR mainframe computers,
mainly in the French-speaking area of Switzerland.
After a reorganisation I began programming in the Zurich area,
but several years later, with many travel projects in mind, I stopped.
Later I combined work with travel by giving lectures on information
technology at one Chinese
university in 2004 and English at another during the academic year 2005-6.
I live in Switzerland but, over the years,
I've had the chance to travel in several countries of the world.
China is a country where I have spent many months.
I've had much pleasure there but, as a westerner, I have also found
it quite irritating at times.
But have a look for yourself at the records of my journeys.

De temps à autre je fais des traductions de français
en anglais ou bien je contrôle et révise un texte déjà
dans ma langue maternelle.
Je serais très content de recevoir votre couriel demandant
un tel travail.
I offer a proofreading and copy editing service
for existing texts in English to ensure that
your readers understand your message clearly.
Just send an email stating how I can help you.
As a 'bonus' you can
find several slideshows for Windows.
You can't start them from here but you can download them
and run them using
Windows Explorer (double-click as usual).
There are 3 keyboard controls you may want to remember:
Esc: to exit from the show
Pause: to linger on a photo
PageDown: to continue the automatic display after a pause.
