Website Update 2008

On 31 January 2008 from Reuver, Netherlands | comments closed

I have been using a website traffic counter since one of the first websites I created in 1998. Over the years the company providing the counter has changed its name from Nedstat to Webstats4u to Motigo. The last name change also brought about a change in advertising: the horrible pop-under appeared. Since that really annoyed me in South America and I got complaints from site visitors as well, I decided to remove the counter with almost 10 years of history, and go with Google Analytics from now on.

I also brought my website fully up-to-date with the latest open-source scripts [updated 24 May 2008, 15 July 2008, 18 September 2008 & 15 December 2008]:

Although I have primarily used this blog for my travel stories, I do not want to withold you the following internet game. The Traveller IQ Challenge is a very addictive way of showing your knowledge of this world. And of course it offers the opportunity to compare scores. My personal Traveller IQ is 118, try to beat that!

Routes in Google Maps & Website Update

To allow an accurate display of my routes in Google Maps, I modified the Gallery 2 Google Maps Plugin to allow the display of KMZ files in my photo gallery. For two albums it is now possible to view the route I traversed:

Photo Albums in Google Maps

On 30 June 2007 from Reuver, Netherlands | comments closed

In line with my previous post where I created a Google Earth map of my travels Down Under, I now installed the Gallery 2 Google Maps Plugin. This plugin can display the location of an album or photo in my photo gallery.

This weekend I tagged each existing album with the most befitting location. Go check out my Google Map.

Of course I would like to have the GPS coordinates of each photo that I take. To accomplish this, I just ordered the Qstarz BT-Q1000, a travel recorder that can log the GPS coordinates of my photos. And I can use it as a regular GPS receiver to navigate with my Nokia N73.
