Paris and PDP

It's a tired, overtransmitted meme, but I am definitely one of its carriers: I have the love of Paris, France. Every so often, I say to myself that if I had large quantities of cash, I would buy an apartment somewhere within the city walls. I then wonder if I would still like it as much if I really lived there. And then I conclude that yes, I still would.

I am so obsessed with the city's geography, layout and all aspects of its urbanism that I am google-mapping the Paris Daily Photo entries whenever it makes sense. I hope the author of this blog doesn't think I'm stalking him.

Until there's a more clever way of doing this with the use of the Google Maps API, I am gladly doing this every day by hand, like a dedicated Paris nerd.

back to blogger...

martyloo is back on blogger... Martyloo doesn't want to pay for web hosting and thanks to very handy software, moving back was a breeze. This not a very interesting post, but I thought I'd mention it for anyone who is trying to write a Wordpress to Blogger migration script. Unfortunately, migrating comments didn't work very well (at all?) I might dig into this and figure it out if I have time. For the few for whom comments have been unceremoniously deleted, I apologize. I'm on blogger for good (as long as it remains free).
