Cool world map thingy -- mark your spot!

    I did it, but...

    It moved the dot from where I wanted it, and there's no way to change it. Grrrr. Pretty sure Edmonton isn't on the shores of Lake Athabasca. 8)

    Bah again

    This time I "aimed" much farther south, and it still moves my dot all the way and heck north. Maybe it doesn't like Macs. Or maybe it's just poorly-coded...

    I give up. Sorry. 8)

    Nice site. However the arrow pointer thingy isn't too accurate :P

    Close enough. :)

    Maybe it is indeed a Mac thing, I dunno. It's been pixel-precise the two times I've used it.

    same deal here, move the arrow, way up north of where it was supposed to be.

    I agree. According to the map, I'm sitting somewhere in Lake Michigan.

    Also, you can't update your entry later, which is kind of a bummer, since I might want to change something.

    Can't edit entries ...

    Even worse if you're an idiot like me and just totally bone your entry in the first place ...

    ... that you're the anonymous bearded woman (according to the color of your box) in the Bay Area?

    Of course, we've all learned from Acrappa's example not to use our banners for the image.

    I agree. According to the map, I'm sitting somewhere in Lake
    Michigan.

    That looks like Lake Superior to me, but I live in The West, so what do I know anyway. 8)

    Help! I've been washed out to sea!

    My poor little dot has been sucked out into the middle of the ocean! ;)

    Hmm... It actually seems to have moved my mark north from where it was when I posted. It was definitely in Lake Michigan when I put it there.

    Bunchaz whinerz!

    I didn't get much out of this one either ;-)

    However, it reminded me of a map-related link someone posted not long ago on the Hotline Server (in the news, which I now can't read cos I switched back to 1.2.3)

    It was a link to a site which let you pull up satellite images of anywhere in the US, then zoom in the level of being able to see cars and trees...

    Stern was just on hotline helping me find the link... does anyone still have it? I wish I'd bookmarked it then... or maybe I did... I seem to be missing a whole bunch of bookmarks.

    If there were some way to incorporate the two ideas, that would be neet... being able to look down at Nate's house from space!
