How to find stuff

This doesn't happen all the time, but often enough that it is worth noting.

Sometimes you know that certain information is posted on the web, but there is no link to it. What you can do is modify an existing link and this will work sometimes.

In this case, The Groton Road Race site has links to results from 2003-2007 and I want this year's results.

Here is the URL for the 2007 results: http://www.coolrunning.com/results/07/ma/Apr29_Groton_set4.shtml Link

So what I did was change the URL to this: http://www.coolrunning.com/results/08/ma/Apr27_Groton_set4.shtml Link

I changed the 07 to an 08 and the Apr29 to Apr27.

The same kind of thing works for the race pictures, but I shall leave that as an exercise for those of my 6 readers who are interested. You can also find the pictures from the link at the bottom of the previous post.
