I’ve found a great new toy, the Great Circle Mapper. It allows you to enter airports, and it’ll draw the shortest routes between them, taking into account the shape of the Earth. On the map on the left, I’ve got it to plot the routes to Auckland from Glasgow, Reykjavík and Granada. I like the route from Glasgow especially! 🙂
One of the Google ads here on my blog today is “Buy Ancient Greece Gods on eBay!”
I knew you could buy lots of things on eBay, but this one surprised me! 🙂
Jeg opdagede lige, at Google Maps nu også har gode luftfotos af Italien. Til højre ses fx et billede af mine forældres sommerhus i Pieve Pontenano (følg dette link for at komme over på Google-kortet).
Yesterday, my homepage and blog went down. This morning, I emailed Yanet to ask what was wrong. It turned out that there were so few people left on the machine I was on that it had been classified as unused and removed. 🙁
I was therefore recreated on a new machine and had my files reinstalled from back-up. The new server is very nice and gives me more opportunities to create subdomains, but it’s irritating to be forced to move on the only day of the year with 26 degrees in Glasgow. :-/
I’m using this opportunity to make my blog my primary homepage – I doubt anybody had much of an interest in my real homepage anyway.
At the moment, I’m waiting for the nameserver changes to spread around the internet – by now, I guess I’m the only one who cannot access my homepage, but I’m sure that’s because of a caching problem at my end.
It seems Flickr has changed the layout – the pictures are now in two
columns, the sets are shown right instead of left, and there are fancy
pull-down menus. I guess it’s a change for the better – but it’ll
take a short while to get used to.
