With this heat I’m not going outside much so since I’ve been stranded around the house I’ve been doing a little hacking on the web site.

Well I just finished what I think is a really cool new page for the site. It is a clickable, dragable, satellite photo enabled map with all the trails in the Auburn/ Folsom Lake area listed on it with links to trail reviews for each trail. I am hoping that this is just the beginning. I would really like to build a database with all of the trails in Norcal and link the database to the map. You should really check it out, I impressed myself this time :)

I also created an RSS feed for the front page stories on this site. There are a variety of ways RSS feeds are used but the primary way I use them is to create Live Bookmarks in my browser. You can also use a news agregator to allows give you a sort of birds eye view of all the sites you use. Lastly RSS allows sites to syndicate each others content to some extent. Still confused? Well fortunately I didn’t spend too much time on it and it doesn’t affect anything else on the site so don’t worry about it.
