Google Maps Route Planning and GPX Making


In the last few days, the Google Map interface has a completely new look.  Part of that change has rendered the GmapToGPX script useless.  It was already partially useless because you would have to enable running external scripts. This was an extra step, and required you to re-setup the map page you had just perfected.  

There is an easier way!  

GPS Visuallizer provides a conversion page for making a Google Map page into a GPX file, or Google Earth file (KML).

Ubuntu 10.10 Day 2


Like anything in life it was ups and downs today with the new operating system.  There was no chance to use during work today, but afterwards, I took some time to get the docking station and huge monitor working.  It actually worked for a while, but in the end, I could not get it to dock and undock with the big monitor on my desk at work. 

The ups- bluetooth support in Ubuntu far exceeds XP!  It just worked right out of the box, no new drivers to install, no updates - something that my XP configuration is still dealing with, and still not working right.
