Day off yesterday was a Good Thing; got caught up with housework, paperwork, shopping, coding (a bit). I've finally written the code I got my GPS for and can now upload a GPS trace and use it to automatically link all related photos on my site to their location on Google Maps (Google Earth and in-browser maps will follow). Once I've wrapped a bit more security around it (ie, I don't want to give GPS locations of parties) I'll upload it to my live site.

On the downside, the PHP-hardening patch appears to break admin of larger albums on my sites as it limits the number of variables you can send in a POST request (to prevent overflow attacks). There's no data loss but all EGPC data is unset on post so the site thinks you're logged out.

I was wondering if geocaching was something you could do with your new toy. There's a lot of that going on in Seattle - wingedelf keeps writing about it, and it kind of sounds like fun.

One of the other things I added to my site recently was code that takes the geocache files from Geocaching.com and converts them to a format my eTrex can read. I may do some this weekend; I already have the local points loaded.
