Yes, this is *slightly* off topic, but let's take a moment to see where in the world everyone is...

Push a pin into the map and put your forum name into the open field using SHIFT-MOUSECLICK
pinpointthis.com/?status=updated&username=all&mapid=23 (http://pinpointthis.com/?status=updated&username=all&mapid=23)

Updated:Seems all the activity has caused it to quit working with Firefox, still works with IE.

Where are all the Propellerheads???!..

It's quite fun to see the clusters of people on the map.

Besides, where is USA LI NY? I'm guessing New York State rather than City. But I wouldn't know what LI is.

How about about ALD CI where I am?

Oldbitcollector,

Great Concept...

It will be interesting to watch the "viral" spread of Propeller tech over the next few years.
I don't know if you can keep track of it... but if you could make a log out of the map once a month... you could add
a drum beat to it next year:)

Well, for some reason the map does not show up. I have an old iMac with IE 5.1 for Mac, OS 9.2. For some reason the HTML doesn't work right on my system.

Not hiding, just cannot access the map to 'stick in a pin'. Sorry; there may be others. I'd of done so long time ago, but no map.
