Body: I worked on a Mapquest query system that takes a set of coordinates (address, x and y offsets, and zoom) and loads the page (or series of pages) needed to get the map, then crops the image and compresses is into a JPEG for transmission to a mobile device. Eventually, a Java application for the Danger Hiptop will be able to view these maps using a native interface, avoiding the overhead of downloading a large image (that doesn't fit on the screen anyway) or a weighty HTML page.

I also imported some data into a database for Ken Salazar's political campaign.

Body: Migrating more of the services from the old community server to the new server. Have most of them moved over. Found that is down, sucks to be a plif fan. I should have taken a snapshot while I could, because I can't find them now, google image cache is worthless, doesn't seem to have them, and google image search can't find them except for one other place, that only has a few of the early ones. Cleaned up a bunch of IPs that were moved off the community server.

  1. Freed up space on my hard drive.
  2. Unpacked a patched 2.6.6 kernel source tree. (Gave up on 2.6.7 -- trying a known good configuration from a colleague.)
  3. More stumbling.
