Vermont 2000 photo album posted

We finally have our photo album section of the site up and running.

In September 2000 we toured Vermont by bicycle for a week. We have just posted a set of photos from the trip to our flickr account here. It is the first album and going through this process helped to iron out some of the issues with the design and layout of the photo weblog (originally using pMachine, now on flickr).

We timed the trip to be after school started and before the changing of the leaves in Autumn. Doing so, we ended up with great riding conditions and no problems finding lodging. I think that we made reservations for the first night we stayed in Brattleborough but that is it. For the rest of the trip we just winged it.

We hope you enjoy it!


How to Journal from the road

I just discovered a client weblog tool that works with pMachine called wBloggar
One of the challenges to journaling from the road is that we might not have internet access when we want to create a journal entry. wBloggar solves this very nicely. It is a little windows client application that lets you create your entries locally then publish them to your web log.
It also has some pretty advanced features like:

  • Custom tags (I just added the list item tag 🙂
  • Spell checking
  • WSIWG editing
  • File upload
  • Basic HTML tag support

I’m hoping it will work on an iPaq!.

PS: I just posted this with wBloggar!
