will you have a computer with you and will you have flash so you can change your swf files?
or do you intend to upload data to your website and have your swf process your data? if you're uploading data only, will you be using a computer with full browser capabilities or a cellphone?
I'll have a laptop with me, but I don't really want to take Flash to change swf files. The laptop will have full browser facilities and I'll be looking for a WiFi / broadband connection each day.
Ideally I would just like to be able to access a private page, input the co-ordinates of the end of day position, and also a bit of a blog, and have the sxf process the data on the public pages of the website. It would move the rolling image and substitute/add the day's blog.
I used to be able to do this sort of thing with asp files, but I don't have that sort of a server anymore
Grateful for any help!

you can use flash to create a main swf that will read an xml file to update the data used by the swf to plot your journey and that will be displayed to people following your ride. that will be one part of your project.
you can also use flash to create a swf what will present an interface (only for you) to create/update that xml file. your server will need to support some scripting language (like php) to save this xml file to the server so it's ready for your followers to use when the main swf loads.
Thanks very much for that help. I see I'll have to get the server to let me use a scripting language to save the data file - that's the bit I'll have to work on.
