Human-readable chicken scratch

Mundane milestones

Apparently my hometown, Loveland, was the subject of Wikitravel’s ten thousandth article. Wikitravel is a volunteer-written travel guide project, powered by the same software as Wikipedia, but not legally affiliated with the encyclopedia project. The article isn’t much to look at at the moment, but its contributors hope to turn it into somewhat of a Jordanhill (explanation). Writing a full-length travel guide on this “mundane” suburb of Cincinnati (their words, not mine) will be a challenge, but maybe they can take some hints from Loveland’s Wikipedia article, which I’ve been maintaining since 2003.

Speaking of Loveland, did you know that this little city has its own flag? I noticed it hanging in City Hall’s main lobby the other day. It has nothing in common with the city’s logo/seal, except for a simply-drawn heart in the middle. I’m no expert in vexillology, so I’m hoping for a chance to head down to City Hall again and snap a photo.

In other news, I spent the day upgrading this weblog to use Movable Type 3.31 and sprucing up the templates accordingly. You shouldn’t be noticing a difference.
