GMapMe is done!

Version 0.1 went live tonight. The link to the right will stay up to date so check it out!
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Side note... I messed up the url above originally. I put in http://http//zirancreative.net/gmapme/ and when I tried it out, I was directed to microsoft.com

Another side note... when I typed in http://http// I was also directed to microsoft.com... not sure what's going on with that.

My first time surfing

Needless to say I had a shit-ton of fun... water was cold but I borrowed a badass wetsuit. Worked on timing the waves and got to my feet a couple of times. Gotta get a good night's rest for kayaking tomorrow.

Got some gear today too...

Though I'm going surfing for the first time tomorrow, I'll be heading out for a day of kayaking on Sunday. I'm pretty excited about that. Today I got a WaveSport PFD ( similiar to this one ), an FNA Guide helmet, an Adventure Technology AT4 Play paddle and I'm demoing a Bliss-Stick RAD 185 boat. Seems to fit well. I'm stoked!!!

GMapMe is almost done

My user script for Greasemonkey is almost done. It'll allow a user to send a Google Map like a user can send a Craigslist posting to a friend. Hopefully I'll have it finished tonight!

Hybrid Google Map

Google released a pretty sweet new feature on Maps... the Hybrid map. It overlays the streets of Maps onto the Satellite image.

Vinq's Greasemap

Not sure why I didn't post this earlier... Greasemap is a user script for Greasemonkey that will add Google Map information to a page that has readable info (such as an address or lat/long points)

How long till Moon hacks are out?

Google just released its Google Moon site. I haven't had time to play with it but I'm sure it runs off the same API (for the most part) as Google Maps.

Another Firefox update

We're at 1.0.6 now. Get it while it's hot!

Fun javascript stuff

Those styled form controls were pretty cool. When looking for router support my buddy came across a forum that had these really cool fading links. After some research I found them here.

Looking around some more I found Prototype and script.aculo.us, 2 REALLY sweet sites. With frameworks like these it won't be long till the desktop and browser are essentially interchangable.

Behaviour is pretty badass too. Now I need a badass project to use these all on!

That was fast...

Luckily I went down to Fred Meyer/Ticketmaster for the NIN tickets. I was first in line and got my 2 GA floor tickets. Good thing I was first because GA floor sold out in less than 2 minutes. I felt bad for the people behind me in line. They got their GA tickets for the bowl though. Lesson: Get up and be first.

NIN and QOTSA

That's right... Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age tickets are going on sale tomorrow (today technically) at 9am. Normally I wouldn't wake up early on a Saturday but I'm making an exception.

Styled Form Controls

I think I saw this on /. but these styled form controls are super frickin' cool. Phil did a great job and I plan on using it in upcoming projects.

Get it while it's hot!

Runnin' down the Ocoee with smiles on our faces!

Kayaking is da bomb

Just got to DC last night. I was just outside Bryson City, NC at Nantahala Outdoor Center for a 6 day fast-track kayaking course with my little brother. I haven't had that much fun in quite a long time. Paddling is a lot harder than I thought. I did do a class III roll but I have so much to learn.
Here's Nathan keeping that edge up!
