I finally found some time to read my latest issue of the ISCA Journal, and was inspired by the cover story to add two new links to the Base Camp. One is a link to a comprehensive checklist of Philmont collectible memorabilia which is generously provided free by Chip S. Elliott and Mike McAdams, the […]

Links validated, Sea Scout insignia site added

June 9, 2007 Glenn Chase Base Camp

In my daily Patch-L email digest a fellow Scout asked the collective subscribers for a site related to Sea Scouts insignia. Robert Rodgers quickly replied with a link, and I thought it would be a nice addition to the Scout Patch Collector’s Base Camp. While I was adding it I used the indispensable Firefox extension […]

Recovering data from patch sites that have disappeared

March 6, 2007 Glenn Chase Base Camp

Every few months I get an email from a visitor advising me that I have a broken link on The Scout Patch Collector’s Base Camp. Sometimes it’s just a polite “heads up” so I can try to track down the new location. Often it’s a plaintive request that I put it back online, and I […]

February 25, 2007 Glenn Chase Base Camp

If you aren’t keen on the effect that pops up a small preview window of the web page when you roll over a link, the folks at snap.com have made it very easy to turn off. Just roll over a link, snort with derision at the unwanted window that appears, then notice the link in […]

December 12, 2006 Glenn Chase Base Camp

After trying WebSnapr for almost two weeks and never seeing improvement on thumbnail load times or successful image loading statistics I went on the hunt for an affordable replacement. It didn’t take long to find snap.com’s Snap Preview Anywhere service, and even less time to implement it. Using BBEdit’s “find and replace” function I stripped […]

Web site thumbnail disappointment

December 11, 2006 Glenn Chase Base Camp

When I first read about the free website thumbnail service provided by WebSnapr I immediately thought it would make a very cool feature addition to The Scout Patch Collector’s Base Camp. Using google I scoured the web for reports from other web developers who had implemented it, and found very few negative remarks. A common […]
