February 2011 - BoardGameGeek.com User Locator

Had enough of not being able to find other BGG users locally, as the "find user" functionality that BGG supplies can only show/find users in the USA. Pulled the data from the "United Kingdom" page into a local dump and created an OSM map displaying it. Over 9000 UK users with location data!

Current implementation is a bit crude, data is scraped from the BGG pages into a local Storable cache, then geo-located, then pulled from the cache and filtered by page requests. Should probably GitHub this.

July 2010 - Docs clean up

Spent some time tidying up the blog software, which I was also using for turning the docs directory. Now it shows the table of contents file (if available) when an unknown file is requested, and supports sub-directories of content.

  2. Documentation - TODO
  3. Contributions to other projects
