Whew! I've spent a few hours on this site and I finally think it's ready to go public. I've made sure all the archive pages are in tip-top shape, in regards to formatting. They're not perfect, but they're acceptable, I think.

I've changed the location of the Flickr photostream, just because I thought they weren't visible enough when at the bottom, especially when our posts start bulking up. Also, I've added links on the left-hand side to our GoogleEarth placemark files. I'm not exactly sure if I have the links up correctly, though, as I don't have access to GoogleEarth on my Mac (argh! when is Google gonna get on that already?!?). Erik, would you mind trying to give those a download to see if they work?

Enough tech stuff for now, onto the show! The trip is only a few days away, and my excitement is building up. I still don't really have a packing manifest or anything, but I know I'll be forgetting something. I need to go find us a voltage converter/adaptor so we can keep our cameras nice and charged up. Erik claims he has UK power adaptors for our laptops, so other than the camera batteries, I don't think there's anything else we're going to require power for... anyone? What am I forgetting?

Oh, also, I'll need a coat, I think. I have an old, cheap, gross jacket that I picked up at an army/navy surplus store many years ago (complete with what looks like a blood stain on the sleeve!), but I don't know if that's gonna suffice. Rachel, or any other UK peeps, how are the days/evening out there right about now? Can I get away with a sweater? Or do I need something heavier/rain-proof/etc.?

Well, considering you're probably already packed and/or going to the airport now, my London weather advice might be a bit too late. The trip is falling on what could be your perfect dates: it's not too hot, it's not too cold - all you need is a light jacket. What you DO need is an umbrella, or what they call in these parts a "brolly". I am looking forward to seeing you guys!!
