Someone tried to connect to my MUD via their browser and because of how character creation works right now, that kind of worked so there's now a player standing in Crossed Candles Inn with the user name "GET / HTTP/1.1"

Today I saw a *brilliant* password protected website. It's guarding access to a secret URL like this: <form action="<secret url>"><input type=password pattern="secretpassword"></form> 😍

Added total visit duration calculations, and made driving routes (buses, cars, taxis, etc) snap to roads. Definitely time to sleep now.

More or less all of this project was necessitated by not covering trips made by anything other than aeroplane, and so missing out on tracking a bunch of places I've been

It's cool (to me) to see the differering patterns between the splay of flights from Dublin, when I've lived here, and the mixed spiderweb of trains and buses and flights from Zurich, when I lived there.

Would've liked to fly less from Dublin for environmental reasons, but there's not really any other way to get anywhere, being on an island and all.

- Fixed all the data that was there (eg. flights to Egypt now show up)
- Added missing trip legs in between (see: roadtrip in Romania)
- Swapped to geodesics for flights instead of straight lines.
- Added types of place to pop-ups.
- Changed code to work with the newer version of Google's geocode API

Fós á dhéanamh:
- All the data from the past ~12 months was never entered anywhere yet.
- The visit numbers seem inflated (eg. I've only been in Bremen airport once, but it's listed as twice).

Still to do:
- Differentiate modes of transport when drawing the lines (eg. red = flight, green = bus, whatever)
- Make the markers smaller?
- Add the data that was lost in translation (eg. it has some of my trip to Egypt marked, but not the flights themselves to Egypt)
- Add the travel since then, seeing as this was a year ago or something
- Add a bunch of stats next to the map

Instead of studying for my final exams next week, I spent a while adding a little Leaflet map to an old travel tracking project. A lot of my travel data is missing, but the visualisation is surprisingly nice, considering it only took about 2 hours.

Also, I am starting the #UrbanGreen hashtag for any and all pictures of plants coexisting with human society in cities and other urban environments. Because this is a random thing that I love. (You may have noticed this 🌱)

Feel free to post stuff to it, if you like. Your own photographs would be nice, but artwork, or whatever else you want to include are welcome too.

Despite their best efforts, investigators in San Diego were bewildered. Two tacos implicated a man full of rage.
