Hey guys, seems you wanted one, so I've spent the morning setting one up for y'all.

In your profile you'll now see some additional fields. Go ahead and punch in your US zip code, if you've got one, otherwise lat./long. will put down a marker on the map as well. If you don't wanna be included on the map just leave them all blank.

Check out the map here :-)

Oh boy, a map! Now if we can only put school and the grocery vendor on the map I'll never get lost!

Wow!

Really, really cool!

Now if you could, please share with me the format that the lat/long has to be in to work? :-)

I've tried entering it in both decimal and Min/Seconds format, with and without the trailing N and W. Can't get it to work..

I'm sure it's simple, once we know the secret handshake!

Thanks,

Decimal, with - denoting West/South. So my Lat/Long in Maine would be
Latitude: -70.705690
Longitude: 43.874417

The indent on the city name is not set. Right now it overlaps the avatar image, which when people have a black background on their avatar, renders it... less useful. :)

Ahh, wait I see it now. Firefox is doing weird things on one of the computers here, odd that it works perfectly on all the other.... it'll be fixed up in a jiffy
