British Hills 1.11

A little flurry of updates overnight as I dealt with some bug fixes and realised some things were wrong (like missing every hill in South Wales...). Anyway v1.11 is released.


  • Show all hills for a country
  • Isle of Man + NI (only Slieve Donard I believe because it is in the Trail 100)
  • Shows number of hills in hill lists and search results.
  • Shows correct number of Corbett Tops.
  • Shows correct number of Graham Tops.
  • Hill markers now positioned centrally over Lat/Long points.
  • Single Hill (purple) marker now positioned correctly.

Google Reader Flickr Image Plus

A long name, will have to think of something shorter...

A Chrome extension for people who subscribe to Flickr RSS feeds in Google Reader.

****NEW - defaults to larger Flickr photo image - change to smaller size in options***

Changes the view in Google Reader to display an improved layout with black/grey background, further info about the image and thumbnails of the creators most recent images. Includes a larger, higher quality image than Flickr feeds normally show. Choice of dark (default) or light themes.

If you're a registered Flickr user you can authenticate the extension to Flickr (see extension options page) and make comments on Flickr images directly from Google Reader - just like you were making them on Flickr itself.

All comments and suggestions welcome.

Runs automatically when you browse to google.com/reader and for most other countries, e.g. google.co.uk. Let me know if it's not working for you.

If you have given the extension access to Flickr you'll see a small icon (like a speech bubble). Click on it to add your own comment.

Options (Change in Chrome Extensions Page)
Change Theme (dark or light).

Choose larger or standard image size (640/500px)

You can now choose to authenticate the extension to Flickr. Follow the instructions on screen to allow access.

You can remove access at any time by going to "My Apps" under your Flickr profile.
