The pictures. They’re so small!
Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

I was just looking back through some of my really old posts here, like this one from an anti-war protest in 2003. It’s funny how tiny the photos seem now. Back then they weren’t huge, but they were reasonable, and I was still pretty concerned with making sure things didn’t use too much bandwidth. As you can see, now I don’t pay much mind to that. If you’re still on dialup, I’m sorry (kind of).

Automated wine lists with CellarTracker and InDesign
Monday, September 6th, 2010

This post will be of interest to about four people in the world (if I count myself). I hope the other three find it helpful. If you’re a wine geek, a user of both CellarTracker and Adobe InDesign, familiar with JavaScript, and want nicely formatted lists of your wine collection, this is for you.


CellarTracker is great for managing your collection, but the wine list feature never really made me happy. The output is pretty generic and boring. For a while, I manually edited the HTML CellarTracker spit out to make it a little more presentable, but I still wasn’t satisfied. So I decided to go all out and connect InDesign with CellarTracker to build a wine list that’s much nicer looking with far better typography than HTML could ever produce1. It’s pretty cool — all I have to do is click a couple of times in InDesign and I have a completely formatted and totally up to date wine list. Here’s how it works.

Alderbrook Resort is really an amazing place. I highly recommend checking it out.
