joining the chorus of “May I use your image please” I want to throw a DNA quote in text onto it obviously with a text link back to the original if that’s ok with you.

just seen this, thank you, I love it!
Hey I'm doing a podcast about the Dirk Gently books and their various different adaptations on Radio/TV/comic books, do you mind if I use this picture as a banner for my wordpress website where I will post the podcasts? I'll put a credit on the website if you'd like.

not a problem, help yourself!
glad you like it,
my personal favourite adaption is the bbc radio one of the first book by the way...

I also like your picture a lot! I'm planning a short blog post on my (German) blog about the electric monk and would love  to use your picture as the title image.

I would need to crop it a little bit, however (need it in 800x288px) and make the mountains a little big bigger. But the monk and the horse will stay the same. Is this ok? 

Of course I will give a credit and link to this page.

Hi there,

I'm doing a short talk at an Irish university relating to online privacy, and I'd love to use this image with the Douglas Adams quote about the Electric Monk. Just like KylieStu, I'll give you a link/credit.

Many thanks,

Didn't finish it yet.  But so far so awesome.  Took a while to start up, but now it just keeps getting better and better.  I liked the bit about the horse.
