I put a link back to my website on the gallery script, and google and yahoo have ways to find out which pages link back to your website… so it has been relatively easy to find a few examples of people that are using my scripts. Its mostly just random pictures of people out doing things: wedding photos, picnics, hanging out with friends, concerts, etc.

Agaciuff said this:

Rough translation: Yes, I believe this is precisely what I was looking for.
So that put a smile on my face.
