How do you load those pictures straight onto attackpoint? Is it easy or are there gazillion steps to do it? Thanks for the help!

More to the point, how much of Kenny's server is all the extraneous MBs loading up? Is another donation due?

use text like this in your message:

The photos aren't actually stored on AP, they are just linked from elsewhere.

Very clever Eddie, making up fake brackets so you can show how to write the link without it actually executing. I usually just go to view the source code and see what someone has done and copy it.

My maps and photos are all on my server, not AP's as Eddie says. If you are curious, most of the photos are here. The maps for this year are here. I've stopped updating the main page on my website because the really really old software I was using doesn't work any more. One of these days I'll figure out something else to use.

:) I just stole it from Ken...via View Source on this very page (see below),

Peter, thank you for the link to your maps and runs for 2008. I hope you'll add this link to your main page.

I don't know how others use your archives, but for this back-of-the-pack runner, I've found your maps, routes and comments to be a very useful armchair training aid. In addition, before traveling to an A-meet, I search for and print out your marked-up maps to use for informal "model" courses. I find it really good training to follow your route through the terrain, particularly if you've provided commentary.

As much fun as these A/P logs may be, they are very difficult to access on an archival basis...the A/P search function just isn't specific enough to bring up desired past comments and maps that you may have posted. So I'm glad you intend to continue to update the "Annual maps and comments" section of your main page. It would be nice if you could figure out how to archive both maps, and leg-by-leg comments too.

I'm with Clark. Your AP log is great, but it was also great to see the anthologies of your runs on your own website.

I assume you mean like this one for 2006. I'll see what I can do, but first I need a little software. A then a little willpower. A then a little persistence. So it may be a while.... :-)

If you store your photos on Flkr, they have the code right there (under Share, Embed it). It's good to specify a height and width of about 290 by 375. Larger than that and it somehow overshadowes the edit button. (How does it do that?).
A trick to see the code people use is to go to "page source" in the "View" menu.
