To answer Mariana's request, I typed up a brief tutorial on how to use gmap-pedometer to do route maps (using Google's Maps). Gmap-Pedometer is apparently designed for runners to make maps of their runs. I use it for biking, it also works for any sort of travel - driving, flying, whatever). The key point is that it shows the distance of whatever path you draw on the map!
Its relatively simple to use, just go to Read more

an EXTREMELY mild 6/10 for this one! one step away from a rotten in my book! (i thought it was less /not-rotten/ than pirates 2, if thats possible!)

Pat and I went to see the HK Ballet's performance of The Merry Widow this afternoon down in TST.
This is my 3rd or 4th ballet to attend since coming to HK, and I think I enjoyed this one the most so far. Particularly I thought they did a pretty good job with the costumes and sets. I snuck a picture during the curtain call:
Tonight i went down to Mongkok to pick up a phone for Beaver. At the cell phone mall, i had to stop and take a picture of this shop's sign:
The shop i bought my p990 was closed, so i had to hunt around to find another one that looked trustworthy and had a decent price. He wanted a Treo 700, but no shop seems to carry that one, it was eithe...Read more
