Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your OAuth tokens.
Your data come,
your quota will be increased,
in the sandbox, as well as in production.
Give us this day out daily stats,
and forgive us our outdated docs,
as we have also forgiven those whose timestamps lack time zone offsets.
And lead us not into premature standardization,
but deliver us from expired SSL certificates.
Got a Thinkpad T431s to replace my 3-year old T410s. Here are some random observations, after using the new laptop for a few weeks.
One-week trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back (March 15–22). Map with tracks, waypoints and links to photo albums.
Here’s a map that shows every tracklog I recorded this year, driving and hiking around Washington State (mostly).
Trip report for a one-week vacation on Kauai (Hawaii), April 8th — 15th.

What about sharing tracklogs? This can be valuable when hiking in areas with outdated maps or maps hat don’t have all trails. So I had a look at some of the existing websites for sharing GPS tracklogs — here’s what I found.
