In case you have not heard...
Is there a geekswithblogs blogger that hasn't talked about the VS 2005 release yet? :) It's cool to see so much excitement. Let's build some killer apps ......

Google Maps Tabbed Info Window
Mike Williams built a tutorial on how to use the nice tabbed info windows on Google Maps like they have on Google Local. He also started a discussion in this Google Group. It looks a bit complicated for a non-web guy like me, but eventually I want to work these into Where's Tim. Technorati Tags: Google Maps, Where's Tim ......

WhatIsMyIp is listening

One of the guys from WhatIsMyIp found my blog from their webstats page. I guess this post that I wrote about them is sending enough traffic their way to get some attention. Maybe they will start resolving host names to IP addresses on that cool Google map and get me to dump Geobytes.

Stick with Sanyo?
I've been waiting for the MM-9000 by Sanyo for months, but then I see the MM-A940 from Samsung. I've always been a Sanyo guy. But I want bluetooth, BizCard Scan, and 2.0 megapixel's about to be decision time, any suggestions ......

Ontario Emperor writes a nice article about EnGraph AVL software, Cloudberry and Where's Tim. He also "followed" me back from San Angelo here and here :) ......

We made it to San Angelo and back (no thanks to Continental Airlines...never flying them again!). Kyle talks about it here. I'm looking forward to Jeff Julian's talk Tuesday night about XML Serialization at user group...If you're in the Kansas City - Lawrence - Topeka area, make sure you come check it out ......

More on Access 2003 Runtime
dlrider left a comment to my post about Access 2003 security: I came across this page looking for this solution. Thanks. I know nothing about Runtime (and the MS site isn't clear to me) so I thought I'd ask the knowledgeable... If an application is put together as a runtime package, can a user with full Access open it as a normal .mdb and make changes? The simple answer is yes. The user accessing the .mdb via the runtime can view your Access application as if they were using the full version of Access ......

Where's Tim and ProgrammableWeb get linked from Czech Republic wrote an article about AJAX and Google Maps and linked to Where's Tim and John Musser. It's all written in Czech and I couldn't find a translator that actually translated it, so I hope they are saying nice things. Technorati Tags: Where's Tim, GPS, AJAX ......

Getting ready for Texas
My roommate Evan (you may remember him from here) took my Nextel this afternoon to go look at a new car, I was watching him on Where's Tim and I about died laughing when I saw him miss his turn, pull a quick maneuver and head in the right direction. Next week, Kyle and I are going down to San Angelo, Texas to deliver our EnGraph GPS solution. Sean is going to get a kick out of watching his 30+ vehicles drive around western Texas. Their region covers over 16,000 square miles. Our ParaPlan software ......

WhatIsMyIp = NotQuiteGoodEnough
Mike Pegg and Lance Robinson report that is now using Google Maps to show an IP's location. It's nice visually, but it doesn't resolve host names to an IP address. Most of the IP addresses that I need to locate are in the host name format. It's not that hard to add the functionality, here's a free code sample. I'm going to stick with Geobytes ......

Google Maps + Web cams
This is cool. Somebody needs to do something like this for the Kansas City/Lawrence area. Maybe integrate it with Where's Tim, people could truly see where I am :) Maybe I'll do that next month, after we deploy our satellite based Automatic Vehicle Locator down in Texas ......

KML Creator source code
I got an email today from somebody that wants the source code for the "Fly to with Google Earth" function on Where's Tim. Essential, I created a base XML file, used an XMLNodeList to parse and change the base XML file, saved the base XML as a KML file, and used a Response.Redirect to launch the url with the KML file. Here is the base XML file that I used. Note that the file HAS to be saved with the .xml extension. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <kml xmlns="http://earth.go... ......

Latest BlogFlux cities via Javascript
It's not exactly what I'm looking for, but it's getting closer. Via javascript you can view up to the last 25 cities from BlogFlux. You can then create a web site like this (which is acting funny right now...I think it choked on this city: 't Goy, Utrecht, Netherlands). AhmedF blogs about it here ......

Location XML Standard
I don't know much about XML standards, so maybe Jeff can help me out with this. I think there should be a location based standard that RSS aggregators and future websites (like Where's Tim) can consume. There would only need to be a few items needed.- Title of location- latitude- longitude- Time stamp- Web linkPeople could syndicate their current location, companies could syndicate their store locations. Cell phone companies could have a standard data format for their location based services. As ......
