On most browsers, when you press the bookmark button, every selection on the page is added
to the URL and the page is reloaded.
You can then bookmark the page and it will save your complete
gear and display selection.
A reminder is popped up to tell you to bookmark the page.
Be sure to enter a title. It will be in the bookmark name.
The bookmarking doesn't work like I would like it to. Most browsers don't allow programs to
create bookmarks. That's too bad for web pages that play nice, but I can see why it is that way.

My 2011 Mileage Log
It's just an excel /
spreadsheet. You can
The Log Data (first) sheet has a row for each day with the date in the first column.
The next two columns are for recording morning resting heart rate and
weight. I never use them, but left them in anyways.
Next are two sets of columns for recording two separate rides a day.
Each of these records the bike ridden, the miles ridden, ride time in
hours, minutes, and seconds, the average speed, the max speed, weather
conditions, and some
notes on the ride.
Usually, these are used for the commute to and from work. I usually note
the weather conditions in the notes.
Tucked in the second set is a column that I record a C if the ride
was a commute to work or a D on days I drove to work.
After those columns, are two more columns to record the bike and miles
for a third ride of the day.
Following that is the daily total mileage. Then miles for the year and a count
of days ridden for the year. Then commute miles and days for the year.
The Sub Totals (second) sheet shows a bunch of statistics. So if you want to know what
percentage of use each bike gets, how often I had a head wind riding to
work, or how much CO2 is didn't put into the atmosphere, the numbers are
on the Sub Totals sheet.
The Graphs (third) page has some graphs. Right now, it has there's a daily mileage
bar graph, a total mileage / commute mileage graph, a commute speeds graph,
and a percentage of use pie chart.
There's also a Tools page with some little calculators. And an About
page with some instructions.
With the exception of the graph formatting, the sheet works fine on Excel,
and gnumeric spreadsheets.
