Map of Countries and States I’ve Visited

First the countries…. So basically most of Europe and North America. A detail of Europe… So mostly “western” Europe. And States in the U.S…. The ones from Georgia to Arizona are just drive-thrus. If you want to play along go to World66.

Collaborative map viewing

I just submited the following feature request to Google Maps today. [Subject] Feature Idea: Collaborative map viewing It would be quite useful to be able to view maps together with others. I often find sending links to google maps too disconnected with what I’m trying to communicate. I imagine the zoom and drag functions that ...

Look Ma! I’m on Google Maps

So it looks like Berlin (and Europe) has finally gotten decent coverage from Google Maps. Now I can Finally give folks an idea of what it looks like (from the air anyways) where I’ve been living for the last 6 years. So, a small tour is called for…. My place The Reichstag Alexanderplatz (Alex for ...

I’m sick :(

After a week of Annika coughing and blowing her nose every few minutes, it’s my turn. I have a growing mound of used tissues beside my desk and the coughing is just starting. Oh joy! Thanks for nothing, Annika!

It fixes a problem in Monodevelop with the Code Template drop-down in the options panel. It’s bug #78082. Every day I work on my soon-to-be-announced project I get more confident in ...

Happy 456!

Today is 4/5/06. If you’re using the American notation that is. Enjoy your day.

Unsichtbar

On Sunday Annika and I went to Unsichtbar here in Berlin. It’s a resturaunt where you eat in complete darkness and whose staff is blind or sight-impaired. I had gotten a gift certificate for X-mas from Annika’s mom, Anja. Annika paid about 40 Euros for her meal though. It’s not cheap but it is fun. ...
