New web host

Tonight I’ve switched over to a new web host, Dreamhost. It looks like I’ve got everything transferred over properly, but be sure to let me know if you find something broken!

Geocaching with DeLorme Street Atlas

Saturday, June 16th, 2007

I recently picked up a copy of DeLorme Street Atlas 2008 with a USB GPS receiver at Best Buy for $60. It’s mapping and navigation software that basically turns your laptop into a GPS navigator for your car. My family and I enjoy geocaching, and this software ALMOST made it so much easier. You can view the location of geocaches in the software, but you can’t view the details about each cache without an internet connection.

To solve the problem, I put together a little script I called GPX2SA and figured I’d share it. In order to use it, you’ll need a Windows PC and a copy of DeLorme Street Atlas 2008 (I’m led to believe it’ll work with 2007, but I don’t have a copy to try it with). Try it out if you’d like and let me know what you think!
