I have played with the Zoomify files a few times before. Then I found a way to get a Zoomify file output in HTML5 format rather than Flash. Since so many people are on mobile devices today and plenty of them don’t use Flash, having the new format was necessary to make the output usable widely. I didn’t like the idea of a new page opening up though. Taking people off your page can mean that they don’t come back. Fortunately, I found out how to embed this in an iFrame. Those of you that are web savvy will know all about this stuff but I didn’t. However, messing around with some page code and suddenly my stuff is embedded in the page above. Pretty cool. Feel free to zoom and pan around the Nellis flightline!
I’m not sure whether to categorize this as in interesting oddity or vandalism. While walking in the Lakes, we came across this tree. At a distance I thought it was an interesting type of bark but, once you get closer, it is clear that the tree has coins jammed into the surface. I have no idea how or when this started or even why it did. Obviously, a lot of people have jumped on the bandwagon and now there are so many coins embedded in the wood that I couldn’t see the point of even trying to estimate how many there were. Instead, we just checked the whole thing out and then went on our way.
