>Behind the Scenes>The quirky shoe sizes
if you live in a country in Europe, then the European system should be selected, except if you live in the UK. So, I took a brief tour of the continent, and located all its member countries. So far so good.
Needs more cowbell!

Have you tried it in Safari--
Roads were made for journeys...
Wouldn't it be a whole lot less work for you and just as easy for the users (if not easier) to just make the shoe field a freeform field?
I think shoe data is an area where you got "a little carried away" to quote you, Eric. I think it's great to have an online running log that lets you track shoe mileage but that's about it. Is it really necessary to have the make and model pulldowns? Let alone size? Before this site I was used to just giving a shoe name (with a uniqe date code) when I added a new shoe, something like, "Asics Landreth 08-06."
Wouldn't it be a whole lot less work for you and just as easy for the users (if not easier) to just make the shoe field a freeform field? I don't see what funcionality the user loses in that. If he/she wants to add size it's easy to write, "Landreth 08-06 size 9.5".
Just my .02.
Either way, best online log I've ever used.
And with all that hard work my shoe model wasn't listed!
Good thing you can type in the drop-down box...
You know I love this site.
Your shoe model's not listed because you're the first one to have them. The shoe models are added by users of this site. It takes a little more work on my part, but it saves me work now because I don't have to maintain it.
