The Captain Adds New Whistles And Bells

Top 5 New Additions To Captains Quarters

1.  Countdown to Meg’s Thirtieth

Now that the counter for my Thirtieth has expired I have decided to replace it with a Thirtieth counter for Megan1.  This may appear a little harsh but I assure you she has it coming.  She reminded me quite frequently over the past year and a half that I was due to turn Thirty soon, so this is just her come-uppins.

2.  New Flickr Photo Album

On Monday I uploaded about six months worth of pictures to my Flickr site and I wanted to find a way to highlight my effort.  I found a nifty bit of code that produces the cool mosaics of pictures, so I upgraded the icon.  The new pictures on my Flickr page include my b-day surprise, Marissa’s wedding, fourth of July, Dave’s wedding and various other events.  Check it out!

3.  The St. Louis Forecast

Before I head to work in the morning I usually check this great weather website, Weather Underground, for the forecast.  Last week I noticed the website has code available for real-time weather updates and I decided I should add it to Captains Quarters.  Now all of my out-of-town peeps will know how unbearably hot/cold it is here in St. Louis.

4.  RSS feeds

A friend asked me a couple of months ago to add this feature and I promptly forgot.  Now seems like a good time to remember.  For those of you unfamiliar, RSS feeds are a way to get updates when I post new entries.  You should check them out if you haven’t already, they are quite handy.

5.  Visitor Location Maps

One of the cool things about Blog-City is that the site actually tracks the country of origin for all visitors to Captains Quarters.  While most visitors live in the US, I do get quite a bit of traffic from Canada, Korea, and Germany.2 This nifty little bit of code from ClustrMaps will actually track hits to my site and place a dot on the map to correspond.  Should be interesting to see where the dots land.
