Now this is spiffy!

Essentially, you can make your own route, and it calculates distance... I think it's based on zoom->mi/pixel distance calculations, and not actual streets, since it seems like you can click anywhere...

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/

Basic instructions for use:
Click start recording. Double-click on a precise location on the map to start. Double-click again anytime your route turns... (the map draws straight lines only)

Click on "Save route" to save the route.

Here's my route today http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=504651
On the way there, I passed the Dallas & Co Costumes & Magic, which turned out to be a better costume/outfit store than Dandelion, my destination.

Unfortunately, Dallas & Co Costumes & Magic lacked longer cat tails - they had 'cat tails' a bit longer than a foot, which... come to think of it - I don't know how long I want. I felt like it should be longer, but I can't remember exactly how long Ritsuka's tail was. Yes, I want to try and cosplay Ritsuka for Halloween. It should be relatively easy, since aside from slightly longer hair (mmm, may need a wig..) and that white-tape-thing on his face (in most pictures), and his blue jacket, he's pretty normal.

[edit] ::vaguely irritated:: Ritsuka's ears are also much bigger than the clip-on things from Hot Topic that I got back in high school. Blah.

[append] Jeeze, I now have a major disliking of Soubi. He's all "love, love, love,"...pedo. And Ritsuka falls into his clutches way too easily. Yes, he's lonely, yes, he's screwed up, but, narrrrgh. Stupid spineless brat. Am having second thoughts about cosplaying Ritsuka.

*squee* Loveless.

I found my copy of Loveless. Dunno why I couldn't find it last time I looked.

By the way, anyone have a good disk-catalogger?
It should:
-Read and then eject discs automatically
-Auto-assign an ID number (that I can then label the disc with)
-Export to tabbed text
-Support more than 800 discs

Preferably free and easy to use, but I'll settle for less. I'll take either Windoze or Mac. Maybe the former, since I get the feeling the wear and tear on the drive (shoving 800 discs through the system ::wince:: ) will be rather high, and replacing my DVD-RW DL will be much easier than replacing my drive on my iBook. Granted, iBook drive replacement = free, for another year and so... minus time-cost.
