I'll work out the syntax later, but for now hi.
I started contributing at the end of Feb 2010.
I live in Kidderminster and so guess where I am going to map. Actually I will be doing some work on Anglesey (North Wales) when I visit family.
I use a Garmin etrex Legend for collecting data, my old mobile phone for pictures and audio record and JOSM for editing.
My rig is run on Ubuntu (Karmic atm.) sadly it currently does not talk to my satnav and I have to use a laptop to prise the data out.
I am looking forward to understanding when to use highway=tertiary, highway=residential and highway=service. Yes that's right I have not been doing this long :P
