My Ning Community

There are all sorts of communities.  Christonium is an interesting community--it is sort of blog oriented and I really like the way you can share articles but I don't think too many people make use of that feature.     In the same way that you can be in several clubs you can be in several communities.   I have a community with a focus on presenting events.    My community is a ning network.   Anyone is welcome to join my community.  What a ning network offers is the ability to share slideshows and music with the community.  You also have a profile page where you can promote yourself and your business.   You can leave comments or private messages for other members and of course you can designate people as your friends.  Come check it out:  http://tixrus.ning.com

Pingbacks and trackbacks

In order to justify having an article here I'll have to explain myself. I am learning about pingbacks and trackbacks. Blogging software is being enabled for it (except for blogger, the one I actually use.) I don't think christonium has it either. I've heard it's trying to become a standard. and that there's a spec for it. From what I can gather it's blogs passing messages to eachother sort of automatically. Anyway I found this script and I'm not sure what it's supposed to do. But I'm going to put it in here. apparently it is ajax.

OK here we go:

Well they won't let me enter javascript code in this code and rightly so, I could be a huge cookie thief So I guess I'll have to try it elsewhere..

Dimple Hill Route from Lewisburg Saddle

If you fancy a five mile trek you can start from Lewisburg saddle but cross over to the south side of the road  -- the non parking lot side.  There you can find a tangle of roads.  A very easy route that's  almost exactly five miles is the straight up and back to the top of Dimple Hill.  Take the upper (right hand) road of the two you will see and go exactly two miles until you come to a four way junction.  Dimple hill  is to your left.  It is well signposted.  Go about 1/4 mile and then you can choose to finish up via a footpath through the woods or stay on the road.  I recommend the footpath.  It's steeper, but its also prettier and shorter.  After a number of switchbacks you get to the top of Dimple and you're rewarded with a fine view of Corvallis on a clear day.  You can either go down the way you came up or choose the opposite.  On your way down you might be tempted to go down the horse trail.  It makes the trek a little longer, because you're cutting east quite a bit, but it is quite lovely and completely downhill, if a little steep for running.  Once you come to the road you will turn left and arrive back at the saddle on the other road that you didn't take the first time.  I have seen very little poison oak along this route.  The dimple road has been closed recently due to logging but they should be done very soon.
