*MY* map meme

Yeah, so ... if I've got this figured correctly, I accidentally posted a link to refwolfoz's map instead of my own. *sigh* I kept looking at it, trying to figure out where those extra people came from ... Let's try again. Everybody who replied to that one, reply to this one!

I couldn't get it to look right for me when I tried it either - so I never got around to putting one on my journal.

Now if this is working right you should have a wee dot in the middle of the British Isles.

Yep, there you are! but -- where did that dot in Alaska come from? I don't know anyone from Alaska. And -- is that Denmark? Odd. maybe I have lurkers.

No idea how this works... but I guess I'm the little blue dot halfway up the east coast of Australia! *waves* lol...either that or you have someone else visiting you from the Brisbane area.

I know only a few people from Australia, and you're definitely the Brisbane one!

LOL...it is just weird, 'cause if it goes by server location I usually come up as Sydney.

Who knows how the computers actually decide these thing?

hmmm i must be the dot between you and indianapolis then. and i'm still pouting over the lack of pink dots **goes off to pout some more**

Don't pout ... blue is the new pink
I'd forgotten how close you live. Isn't it strange how we go on this vast, world wide web, and end of finding people who are practically right next door?

crazy place
I was in Marion for a show choir contest a couple of weeks ago ... practically spitting distance. :-)

It should be back now, shouldn't it? Try to click on the map.

(I said, having no idea how this thing actually works.)

redwolfoz says it hits on where routers are located, rather than the physical address of the user ... I guess that makes some sense, although it still doesn't explain who hit on my site from Alaska.

lurking penguins
Yeah -- no, wait. Penguins are indiginous to the Antarctic area. It must be a polar bear in Alaska. :-)

I have a maploco map? Wackiness.

Interestingly enough, to me at least, is that it picks my location up as Rhodes (a suburb) rather than Sydney. This would be baffling if I didn't know that's where one of the major routers lives.

Darn it, I keep forgetting you're down under -- for some reason I always picture you as living in England. You'd think the "Oz" in your name would be a reminder ...
redwolf
Feb. 7th, 2007 07:27 am (UTC)
That would be like the Oz in your name?

I think everything I'm writing at the moment is set in either England or Wales. Go figure.

I'm sure that's why I keep making that mistake. Do a couple of Australia fics, will 'ya? :-)

As there are quite a few Chicago-Northwestern IN dots, I'm not putting myself down. Would be kinda silly to stomp on someone else's dot, wouldn't it? Eh, never mind, I'll do it anyway.

Yep, I should be the Oak Lawn, IL one.

The more the merrier!
I wish there was a way to blow up the map, to see the specific dots more easily. It's still kind of interesting, though -- there are dots in places where I don't have anyone on my flist.

Well I've tried accessing this at different times of the day and I don't get sent anywhere, just to a page that says the website isn't found.

*pouts*

That's strange -- I've had no problems at all. Wish I could tell you what the problem is, other than just the techology gods. :-(

Do I just have to click on the map to get a dot - if so I've done that so should be one of those UK dots.

Honestly, it beats me exactly how it works. There are dots in places far from where my nearest friend is, so I assume anyone who happens to click on your map gets a dot, or something like that. There's not much on the site in the way of explanation, really. There is a list of locations that people click from, but apparently it's the site of the nearest main router, rather than where the actual person is.

Gotta love that modern technology.
