Mr Red's distance to a venue page
The page lists session in my area. Exeter to Shrewsbury and Cardiff to Oxford (ish). Nothing new in the data per se but I have embedded OS grid references.
This enables me to offer a link that when clicked will change one column to the distance from a centre of interest to each venue listed (as the crow flies).

Aha! You ask, "What, about the Bristol Channel??"

Well I have trained my crows to avoid water and recognise toll booths when they see them, and add 20% (VAT?). In theory. What does the combined wit of the Mudcat say?

There are other facilities like "choosing the centre of interest" (town), predicting the likelihood of the event happening within 8 days, OS grid reference if you really really wanted them and making the Post Codes more obvious (they have been there on pop-up reminders for years.

Works on FF and IE. And apart from a few dodgy Post Codes and 2 weeks programming the trigonometry (don't ask) it was pretty straightforward.

Aha - that will appear on all pages that use the venue data.

Thanx - I will investigate.

Did any of the other frippery work?

Dreamweaver doesn't like spaces instead of colons.

In Firefox with text upsized a tad via Ctrl-+, I see an OSGR line for Gloucester covering up the topmost banner and kinda floating there meaning I know not what, from this side of the pond.

Putting the page thru sucessive downsizes of text, the same line floats down into the yellow area after sitting in some sizes between the yellow box and the Cresby.com headline.

I'm on the crap LR monitor, so that's about all I can see without turning my eyeballs inside out. I seem to recall that this was so on previous looks at your site, but I forgot to bother you with it because youse so nice and there is so much else in your organization of info I admire.

That reminds me....

I offer no helpful critique. I only want to say:
HOT DAMN!!! Her I am stuck in the early summer heat of Central Texas, USA, with no prospects of ever getting out, & some wonderful someone has made it possible for me to dance all over the map of--ummm--not England, but the UK. I started, it turns out, in Wales. I'll save another area for another day.

I'm not so interested in the complex math formulae as in the time & effort it took to train the crows...Tw

Susan - the layer that moves has been re-allocated.
I thought it was showing other faults but that turned out to be a remote instance of XP on public libraries. They don't refresh, the surfer has to, which is significant if I change anyhting. But I spotted another problem and sorted it.
The alt weeks question will be addressed in future but it depends on getting a datum for each event, which changes when there is a K in the month, a Bank Holiday or the event has to give way to a wedding or something.
