Bye Bye to Snipsnap

In June 2007, at http://snipsnap.org. it was announced that the original authors and team the created and supported Snipsnap were ceasing work on it. Some community users proposed to move the code here… at sourceforge.net.

Where to get it?

It would seem that the Frauenhofer ftp sites no longer supports the download of the java library files. They were linked to at snipsnap.org’s download page. The source forge pages point at the Frauenhofer site, so I have uploaded my copies of Snipsnap V1.0b3, Uttoxeter to a page on my static site,

Snipsnap was originally published as GPL, see http://www.snipsnap.org/space/GPL

A new home for snipsnap.org

Frauenhofertook Snipsnap.org down, but when Leo found out he got the files and restored the Site.

Florence/Firenze

Getting There

Fly with BA from Gatwick, not Heathrow. Ryanair goes from Bournmouth Airport, but nor every day. Both these arrive in Pisa, from which one can catch a train or bus. 2007

Things To Do

Art, Architecture, Gardens, Food & Drink.

The centre of Florence is the Piazza del Duomo, the location of the famous Duomo and its bell tower, the Campanile. To the south of the Duomo is the Uffizi and the Bargello (part of the eastern district in the Rough Guide). They are two of the finest art galleries in Europe; the latter having a fine sculpture collection. Tickets for Florentine Museums can be booked online. It is next door to the Pallazo Vecchio, the republican town hall.

North of the Duomo is the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi and the Giardino dei Semplici (translated by Google). The latter has restricted opening times and at the backend of the week during the summer is open mornings only ’till 13:00.

On the other side of the river, there is another Garden, the Giardino Boboli as well as some more fine Palaces and the Plazza Santo Spirito, which has is surrounded by Cafes & Bars. The Modern Art Gallery is at the Pitti Palace in the Oltrarno.

Where to Stay

I shortlisted my hotel choices on del.icio.us (hotel+Florence).

I went with the family, and took these pictures. Here is a link to Colin’s Panorama from the top of the Duomo.
