Oh, sorry, I just noticed that there is something wrong with the MSCL map. The software is missing an important piece. I totally forgot about the MSCL map when we upgraded our server last month. I'll try to fix it sometime this week - i'll post here when it's done.

You're awesome SAB!

Uh-oh, that breaks the tie Grim, it's all rear view from here! -- Totally just kidding, you'll be way ahead of me again in no time, especially when my school year starts (oh crap, I'm just realizing -- summer vacation doesn't last all year?! :shock: )
Do you ever get obsessed with the rear view mirror, like while you're driving?

Congrats on passing me Jody and don't worry I'll look just as good in your rearview mirror as i did from behind. 8) :wink:
As for summer vacation, I can't wait for it to be over. By then end of August I'll be reaching that light at the end of the tunnell. The vacation factor does make me recondisder teaching as a profession. And a lot of teachers in Ontario anyway tend to retire in their mid fifties (they have a great pension package) and then summer vacation would last all year. But if I were to become a teacher it's more likely I'd do it for 5 years or so and then move on to a different career.

Sometimes I think the same thing. A job you don't have to take home sounds really appealing! Maybe I'll take a job with, you know, those guys, up in the mountains... :P

Vacation isn't even over yet and you are running for the mountains? Well I'm sure you'll make the best snow ever. Just make sure they have web access before you pack your bags.

It's working again. It's really a lousy script. If I ever have some more time, I'll try to find a way to zoom in and edit/modify entries.

hmm, well Jody Barsh* made it onto the map but it appears she's now living in Los Angeles, China or maybe she's just gone to China for her fishing trip.

The problem is in most cases that you have to enter a negative value for the longtitude (2nd value) if you live in north/south america or western europe. If you forget this negative value, you'll end up in Asia ;-)

I fixed now the values, but it's pretty crowded in the USA, so the entries are overlapping each other until I find a way to add some kind of zoom function.

I added a "cheap" version of a zoom function. It's just an additional image for the US. Europe is a bit more difficult.

ETA: Europe is now done too.

Wow! SAB -- you got skills! Thanks for all the time and work you put into these details! :clap: Well, it looks from the map that it's time to resume my old identity ... (sniff) ... sometimes ... it's just so hard living a lie :cry:

:P

I thought you lived in LA Candygirl ... did I make that up?

Either you totally made that up or you remembered that I said I lived there for two years.

Look, if this is weird for you, being tutored? I don't mind helping you a little longer.
You could have sex with me if you really want to help...I guess that's a "no"?

Okay, this is just not right. I've been exiled to the wrong country, much less continent! Why couldn't it just have placed me in Beijing, Tokyo or Seoul? Grrrr... ;)
