Hi guys, I viewed that site months ago and now can't. For your information it was a BMW 1200GS trip round Morocco. Mostly offroad. The page showed a profile of altitude, a ribbon on a map showing where on that day's section you viewed-a day at time. A choice of still pics could be selected and the postion on the line was shown as well as on the altitude stip. A menu on the page allowed data to be viewed such as distances and others I forget, though dialogue was one. All in all a very original, clear and interesting not to forget creative way to show the trip. 10 for style. 10 for content. 4 for choice of bike! Linzi.

Interesting, mine comes up with waving fields of daisies for a few seconds.... but then fades to what can only be described as 'grey'

Ok amigos,

a new security policy adopted by adobe flash caused the "grey screen only" error...
But...
I fixed the issue (I know it took some time but hey, I am not a pro), so the website is shown in a correct way now.

Have fun all and let me know what you think.
Demito


PS Still working on the English translations for the South America trip though... But the piccies say a lot already. There's more to come!
PPS oh yes the URL is: i-spog --- explore my trip

Demito,
Finally got to see your Morrocan trip, very nice pictures. The wide angle pictures in the mountains give a very good perspective of how big the Sahara really is. What type of camera equipment did you use for this trip. Do you plan to add audio to your trip eventually.

Smile Blank screens? - not here...!

Hi Demito
Congratulations, terrific show, puts all my old trip reports in the shade.
No blank screens here. Windows XP, French broadband connection.
It all came up... and stayed up all evening.
This beats Television any day

I used my old reliable Canon 300D, not the best camera around but still going strong after numerous falls and all them vibrations...
Apart from background music which is already available (click the play button at the bottom of the page and you wil hear some nice tunes), I do not plan to add any other sound/voice overlay...
