So tell me.

When was Camden founded?

What is it's history?

Is there public transportation?

What are the weather statistics?

I'm doing a lot of travel writing at the moment, and sites like this are killing me.

My bitch of the day™.

I don't have time for that - seriously.

I have 300 towns to write up.

I need to be able to get onto a site, extrapolate all the juicy stuff and get out.

Here's a good one:

I know the site you posted doesn't have what you need, but it looks great for people who just want to travel there and not learn about it. Good luck with your search, though.

I thought when you posted this it would be another one of those really crappy looking websites. But yeh, there's not much there.

Yeah, I went to the "About (http://www.camdenme.org/about/)" page, thinking, well, that's where it will be, right? No, that's just where they have a business-speak-nonsense-wank(™?). Of course. :rolleyes: I feel your pain.

Under Residents>Towns>Camden, I found this information, but it wasn't all that go-to-able.

I almost want to write a template, publicize it, for towns, and do it as a CMS with certain imformation as required fields, and then just distribute it for free...
