Google's maps lets you move routes around now! So I can design my own route, and plan alternate ones in case of traffic.

Home to Work, a much better one than the one I was using in order to avoid traveling on Wisconsin. (too many red lights, Wisconsin Ave.)

Shall try this out tomorrow. Here's the hoping 46th and Massachusetts isn't too bad. Now if I could only find an alternative to River Rd... (stupid one-lane potomac roads... I swear, as much as I love the trees, sometimes the traffic gets a bit more than irritating.)

Oh man, I hope this AT&T Nationals thing (some golf event in our area) won't cause truly massive delays on River Rd. and Falls Rd.

(Hmmm, I could map out the bike routes I take using this too, and figure out how far I travel...)

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.

Whee, customized google homepage.

http://www.google.com/ig

But I'm not too sure I like it.. it tends to generate extra clutter. ::sigh::

However, this is cool. As you search, google shows you the number of results, and searches based on the stuff you've typed in so far.

All of this and more, from Google Labs: http://labs.google.com/

There's also a web accelerator that I can't use... http://webaccelerator.google.com/

A9.com, on the other hand is also pretty spiffy. I like their searching category choices. And searching there gives me a π/2% discount at Amazon, which is nice too (yay, I can save ≈1.57%) And they have pretty good search results... similar enough to google. Or perhaps a9 uses google? o.O
