Hey, put yourself on the map! I made it for us so we can see how diverse and looney we all really are!

Here's the address:

http://www.frappr.com/kwsn

Add your picture, or avatar, but if you put a picture, make sure to give one to Uncle Baldy too!

Hey I used the picture from this forum for it... is that ok? Should I change it? I didn't want to infringe on anyone's copyright, or insult anyone's sensibilities, so let me know....

Thanks!

That domain sounds like something very different.

Actually Michelle, it looks fine to me. You just have one, and you are saying NI!

I didn't quite see myself at first, and then I reloaded the page and I showed up.

go back, reload and look again, if you need me to take you off so you can re-enter I will, but I'm psyched because I think it looks great, and can't wait for everyone to have a little blob. For some reason I think it's the coolest thing to see where everyone is on the map. It makes you all so real. As a matter of fact, my nephew is in Australia right now. he's just done a semester at University, (I'll have to get more facts on that), but he'll be going to New Zealand soon, then returning to Virginia in December...

but enough about me. Let me know exactly what you want me to do. PM me if you don't want to post here

I hope your nephew is down south, and not in the north at the moment. lol It's getting stinking hot here so I'm dreading December/January. We've been in this new house for about a month and a half, and we've had a couple of storms in that time while the area around Brisbane (where we came from) has had heaps of rain and it's about 6 degrees celcius cooler. Rolling Eyes I've never been to New Zealand but it looks like there's some beautiful scenery there.

Anyway, getting back to the map. I've ended up with the city, state and country in there twice - up the top same as everyone else's, and then again down the bottom. If you could delete the one down the bottom of the shoutout box, that would be great. If you can't do that, just delete me completely and I'll do it again.

This is very cool. The resolution on Japan is so absolutely fine, I am not at all exaggerating when I say that I could find my BALCONY. It's amazing, really.

Yes, Michelle, I had to delete you. Just redo it now.

I found my house as well Trane Franks. I don't know how recent the satellite imagery is, but it's way cool.

Thanks, Lady K. Smile I can see where I think my house is. Laughing One more zoom would make it easier.

How about all the fault lines? Quite amazing, and quite scary when you see how big they are.

It's quite amazing. What I think is funny are all the parking lots around my area which are labeled, "unknown road". Roads to nowhere, ehyup!

But I don't see you on the map Trane... Please join us!

So, some directions are necessary I see...

after you join and put your shout-out, (which is 99% Ni! of course), RELOAD/REFRESH your page to see your bubble.

You can click on someone's name and their bubble will jump up and shout-out at you or click on any bubble to see who it is. I'm still figuring it out as well.

If you get yourself in twice, then you're listed twice, big deal. And what's fun is that your shout-out doubles!

You can zoom in regular map, satellite map, and a combo of both. Some remote areas don't show but it's fun looking around.

Thanks for the Post It oh Powers That Be!

Now let's get Sir Fart, Sir Baldy, Sir Furry, Sir Hamster, Millenium Knight, Grizz,(to name a few) and everybody to join, please oh please oh pretty please?

Any other questions, just let me know. I appreciate you all having fun and doing this....

NI!

Wow, you can zoom right in, Lady K. #ni-1 Mine goes to about the 4th bar down on the zoomographomatic.

A 3 Ni! salute for you for thinking of this. It's heaps of fun.

#ni-1 #ni-1 #ni-1

So far, Mildew and I are the only looneys on other continents. Laughing
