'[ADMIN] [PIC] The Piclist Members Map'
2007\07\20@050139 by Dan Smith

face picon face
Myself and James have been working on a world map of Piclisters.  We
thought it would be interesting to see where members are from and also
for members to see who else is in their area.

The map is now up on the front page of <http://piclist.com> - please
feel free to add yourself as at the moment there is only myself,
James, Josh and the MIT server on the map.  We're feeling lonely! :-)

The mapping facility is provided by Frappr.  Any constructive
criticism welcome - we will listen, but obviously we are limited by
the Frappr API as to what we can do.

Dan (looking forward to seeing more pins in the map!)

Oh well.
Requires a newer flash player than I have at work. Software
upgrades require written justification in triplicate,
Corporate I.T. approval, an environmental impact study, and
a note from my mother.

Since I don't have flash on my home machine either, I will
not be able to join your map.

I feel so.. "Off the Grid"..

Just imagine another flag in the western North Carolina area.

Great idea.... some PIClisters have found that they can insert multiple
entries (or is this programming bug?) and have their tile "blink".  Any way
to eliminate dupes?

Is there a trick to uploading a photo? I added a pin for myself and
put in my name, email address, and uploaded a photo. however, my photo
is not showing up. Is there a delay?

Thanks,

Sean

I can view the map with the photo's ok but when I try to join it asks me to
move the pin.

Do I need to log in some how or how do you move the pin?

I tried dragging with the left mouse button but it did seem to move.

Just enter another city or zip/area code and
the map-tool finds your new location.

Actualy, it did not find my hometown, if I didn't
entered the zip code instead.

You do not drag anything...

Sorry but I do not see how I can add my location.

If I click join it defaults to some town that I do not see how I can change
the name and the icon says to drag the pin.

Guess I am not looking at the correct part or something :-(

I clicked on "Move this pin" and then it let me type my town.

I think it guesses your location given your IP address.

If you click on "Move this pin" it opens up an address box and you can
type an address.
If you enter something like "suburb, city, country" it ya do a good
job of positioning the pin.
After several attempts to see what it would and wouldn't handle I
entered.

       Wakeling Avenue, Te Atatu South, Auckland, New Zealand

and it positioned the pin not only on my street but, presumably
coincidentally, within 1 section of my actual address.

I originally tried dragging the pin, which seemed a sensible thing to
do, but it didn't cooperate.
I think that this capability should be easy enough for them to
accomplish and would add greatly to the ease of use. Use eg city and
country to get close and then drag for fine positioning.

It somehow guessed where I was within a couple of miles, as St.Albans, the nearby city.  Trying to "move pin" (surely it should say something like
"type in location"?) it didn't recognise the name of the village I live in, Park Street, presumably because it was treating it as the name of a road (it's
a Roman thing) despite appearing on the map as the village.

Not sure if that can be fixed - it's good fun anyway!

Cheers,

Zooming in is a bit disturbing in a "big brother is watching" kind of way.

My pin landed within a few 100 m's.
I would not have done better with a pin
on a globe. And I guess US/AU/NZ watchers
couldn't care less... :-)

Note to ordnance - better make that 10 kT* and ensure that selective
availability is off**.



       R


* 10,000 W/m^2

** selective availability is, nowadays, always off.

In case this was a serious question (hard to believe, coming from the
master of internet search :)

The nice brief reference at
<http://www.alcyone.com/max/reference/physics/units.html> says "Wb".

More a "it's 5:35am* and my mind thinks my body should have been in
bed hours ago and ..." question :-)

Yes. Wb didn't come but it's obvious in retrospect.

As, in fact, Webers were just a means of transforming kilo-tons into
units of another sort it didn't seem all too urgent :-).
I was mildly surprised that nobody picked up on the kT's.

I didn't understand the whole message. Maybe it had to do with the 5am...
:)

In any case, kT is not "kilo-ton", at least not the metric version of it.
That would be "kt". (For the other tons, I guess the "k" prefix would be
strange.)

(BTW, shouldn't that be "tonne" where you are?)
