Last month I got a new ORCA Card to ride the various transit systems in my fair city.

In addition to being re-usable stored-value cards (replacing the disposable farecards we used to discard at the end of each month)ORCA cards can also be:

1. Re-charged online
2. Configured to automatically renew your transit pass on a monthly basis
3. Used across 7 different transit systems

I also love the personalized commute data you get on the Orca website. Minefrom last monthis below. I had loaded the card with a $2.00 monthly pass (cost $72.00)but the data shows I fell shy of the 36 trips needed to break even. The take-away? Ride the bus more!

Testing out the WP 2.7.1 upgrade and a new skin job (Grid Focus by Derek Punsalan 5thirtyone.com). Sometimes parallel upgrades of code and UI are more fun together, you know?

Curious how it renders on various devices like my 2006 Windows Mobile phone, my Nokia N810, and various browsers.
