SIGH! My kids have been there more recently than I have. Ah well, I'll be in France some time in May or June and will take some side trips to the Alps. My wife wants to go to Italy. Have they fixed that damn tunnel yet?

The local TV channel 10 has a Columbus, Ohio here. Right now the city is inside of a cloud. Check back later. If I catch a good skyline I'll grab the image and post it later. Cheers!

The Tunnel de Mont-Blanc is still closed, at the moment the latest news is that they hope to have it open to private vehicles mid to late January and opening it to heavy goods vehicles around a month later.
Considering the general attitude around this area is that the tunnel should either remain closed or only be opened to private vehicles, not sure what is going to happen.
I know that there are plans to picket the tunnel and try to block it as well, should be interesting.
Actually, having the tunnel closed, means that Chamonix is now a great place to visit. The air is, once again, clean without the ever present smell of diesel fumes.

You can always get to Italy through the other tunnels that exist, but I suggest making a day, or two, of it and going over the top via one of the mountain passes.
Beautiful scenary, as long as you do not mind the hair-raising drive (especially if you come from flatlands). Nothing like a 200 metre drop on the side of the road to keep you on your toes .

P.S. Where in France? Remember that Switzerland does not use the Euro either.

That would not bother me. I've driven in
some of those moutains before. Went skiing in Risoul for a week once. The mountains where I live aren't that tall, but I don't live in flatlands.

My younger daughter is doing a "Junior Year Abroad" program in Montpelier. Over Christmas break my older daughter went over to visit. They spent time in Montpelier and Paris. Earlier (October, November?) the younger daughter was in Geneva visiting a friend for a long weekend. I have not been to Switzerland since 1995.

Anyway, sometime around June her classes will end, and then she needs to move to Paris for some funded research during the Summer before returning to the US in late August. So, I'm using the excuse of helping her move to spend time on the Continent.

Although next summer it'll be from a bigger boat.

Hey Swiss Mercenary! Are you a particle Physicist?
I mean, do you work at CERN or anything?

Nope, I am just a poor Computer Programmer/Analyst.

Not any more. I worked there for a year and a half back in the early 90's, around the time the Web was being developed. As I have stated here before, I knew quite a few of the web team, including Tim Berners Lee. Actually I have been on stage with Tim in a few amateur shows.

My claim to (i)fame(my) was telling Tim that I though it was a nice tool, but that it would not catch on.
Thing is, he more or less agreed with me .

I don't know how to link pictures only, so you'll have to go there to see my view of the world (which I think is pretty nice).

I'm living in Katherine Parker Hall, I spend most of the rest of my time at Parker Auditorium (the theatre), and College House, where my boyfriend lives. If you can find a picture of The Point, I recommend looking at it; it's so beautiful.

Linking images is done like this:

I haven't seen any UBB FAQ here on the site. Seems like it would be a useful thing to have around.

Should be this Eponine.

The picture is on the page with the following url:

(Easy way to get the url of a picture is to right-click the picture in your browser and select properties, try it below.)

So the image which Eponine wanted us to see is:

In Internet Explorer, that is. Netscape, for all its vast suckitude in other areas, provides a handy-dandy "Copy image location" item on the right-click menu for images.

Oh, that's cool! Yeah, that's my building. For the practice, I'll put up the other two pics of the places I am the most.

This is where my boyfriend, Chris lives. If I'm not in my room or in the theatre, I'm most likely here.

This is the theatre, aka my second home:

Edit: Yay, It worked! Sorry Snaggy for taking up so much space, but I shouldn't be doing this very much.

The Columbus, Ohio 10TV webcam I mentioned above is turned to face Ohio State today.

That part of campus doesn't have the prettiest skyline, but you can see the stadium, two dormatory towers (white-ish), the Olentangy (rhymes with Angie) River (nice bike path follows the river for 10+ miles), and the rest of the brick buildings are part of the OSU medical center. The main part of campus is just out of the picture to the right.

In this view, the camera is facing north.
Usually the camera is turned about 120 degrees to the right, facing downtown, which has a more picturesque skyline. I think the OSU campus and downtown are about 5 miles apart. I just moved here about 1.5 years ago and am pleasantly surprised by how much I like Columbus.

</tourguide>

UPDATE: They turned the camera.

I'll stop posting big pictures now.
