Photos: Vienna & Central Austria

Now that I’m back home, I’ve started putting the photographs from my trip up on Flickr.

The entire Europe Bike Ride 2014 album is here, and will automatically show new photos at the bottom of the page when I add them.

A couple from Vienna and the first couple of days on the road through Austria, just to whet your appetite!

Ein Radler, Bitte!

Many, many more photos to come over the next while; I shot nearly 3000 photos over the seven weeks I was away and will be sorting through them as quickly as I can. Lots of them are panorama shots that need to be assembled before I post them, like the third image above. They’re fun but extra work to get ready.

More Reasons to Like My Webspace Provider

This blog, and my various other web projects, are all hosted on Koumbit.org, a Montreal-based nonprofit technology co-op. They cost about the same as similar hosting packages elsewhere, but they’re technologically savvy, incredibly Open Source/Free Software friendly, help with Drupal, LGM and other FLOSS projects, and do a whole bunch of hosting for socially-relevant groups not just from Canada but overseas.

Case in point – what’s down at the bottom of the OpenMedia.ca site? “Hosted by Koumbit”. Awesome.

(and on a closely-related note to the OpenMedia link: on May 2nd, my fellow Canucks, remember your ABCs when you head to the polls…)

Twas The Night Before Christmas…

Traditionally read on Christmas Eve, naturally, at least in our family. I can still recite large stretches of this from memory, purely from childhood repetition! This is the complete text of Clement Clark Moore’s famous poem, on one sheet. This is a project that’s been knocking around in the back of my head for number of years, and this holiday season I finally did something about it.

Also available on PDF, if you wish to print it for reading by the fire with care. (UPDATED 5th December 2012; I rearranged part of the website a while back and forgot to fix this link. Sorry. It works now!)

Happy Mid-Winter Holidays, everyone, however you celebrate them.
