Adelaide Greenies Calendar has a new web site

About two years ago, as many people who know me are no doubt aware, I started an on-line calendar to collate the green-minded events that are happening in the greater Adelaide metropolitan area.

Well, the Adelaide Greenies Calendar has a new web site, with a new address:

It's carefully disguised as a site not thrown together on BlogSpot, but it does the trick. I've also set up pages on Facebook and Twitter, and you'll find links to those at the bottom of the front page. You can still subscribe to the calendar itself in your planner application of choice, be it Apple iCal, Mozilla Sunbird, or Microsoft Outlook, as well as on your smart phone.

It's been a long time coming, but I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, considering that almost the entire site is assembled from completely free, off-the-shelf parts. I didn't really have the inclination to set up my own free-standing site, and I'm impressed by what can be achieved with little to no start-up costs.

That said, I have to give a vote of thanks to Scott Rossiter, who did a great job designing a logo for me. We've never met; I met one of his cousins at a permablitz and later at a movie night, and after a few emails, we had a concept not dissimilar to what you see today.
