    THe map comes up for me in IE for a split second then I get "Internet Explorer cannot open the site http://forums.digitalpoint.com/usermap.php : Operation Aborted"

    It looks to be a really cool feature though ;)

    Yeah, I noticed that about IE too. Not sure yet what the deal with it is.

    Of course it's not *useful*... :)

    So how accurate is this?

    I *think* I can see me, but it's a few miles out.

    Very cool stuff though. :)

    Well, it's not like you all have a GPS attached to you. :)

    You can see where my servers *think* you are over here if you want:

    Any way to have the user name appear on a mouseover?

    PS. I think Nintendo has this same thing on his wall in paper form to help with his "stalking" hobby

    Which member lives in the Isle of Man?

    I'm in South Korea right now so I assume I'm the sole user there? If so, this is really cool.

    You could actually... I could make it so if you click one of the pins, it takes you there in Google Earth. For example see this:

    http://www.digitalpoint.com/~shawn/2005/07/google-earth-kmz-files.html

    Yeah, I had thought of it actually, but then it becomes a bit of a privacy issue I think.

    No clue...

    An opt in system would be pretty cool (If you get bored again)

    If only that thing could tell sex, we would have been spared all the Cute_Lara threads ;)

    $10 says you're not releasing this. But I'd love a copy for my forum if ever you do....

    Couldn't even if I wanted to... The "guts" of the system is a 2.5M record (300MB) geotargetting database that's not shareware (not mine to give away).

    Yeah good man - long time no see, we have to meet up again soon... Been too long
    I wasn't sure if you were still state-side or not...
    I'd opt-in for that...

    So in terms of where the pins appear, is is some big internet junction type thing then, because I'm sure there are more people from london on the forum, but the only pin I can see is just down the road from me (Like I say a couple of miles)...
