I love this Board.
You can toss one of the greatest mysteries of the Cosmos into a discussion and within hours it's solved!

Guys, where is the log in to the new site? I can look at it but I can't add my pin... it never asks me for a password or anything.

Or if someone could do it - Warsaw, Poland is the spot :)

From earlier in the thread:
Quote:
Welcome Selezen. I don't know how have I missed this thread!?!

Considering the population on the Oolite Nightly webpage visitors map let's see how many will go public.

Some instructions :evil: on how to pin your marker on the new Oolite Map:
  1. Go to http://www.scribblemaps.com/maps/view/O ... 3US4ObF9uH
  2. Click on "Create A Map" on the upper-right corner of the page
  3. Click "Menu" from the toolbar and select Load/Import from the options pop-up window
  4. The Map Id is 3US4ObF9uH (the last part of the URL given by Selezen), leave the "Load" radio button checked and click the "Load Map" button
    Now the easy part follows:
  5. Select the "Move the Map" toolbar icon and Pan/Zoom to the location you want to pin for yourself
  6. Select the "Place a marker" toolbar icon and select the marker icon you like from the next pop-up window
  7. Click on the map to pin your marker and fill in a description for the marker in the pop-up window. Put your call sign in the title.
  8. Click "Menu" from the toolbar and select Save Map
  9. Add the Oolite08 password, given by Selezen, and click the "Save Map" button
Done! 8)

42 is THE answer. but is that the number of toasters required ? or the number of slices of toast required? but the most important question ... is raisin toast acceptable?

<grins> I've lost count - but it can still make me laugh 'til it hurts! Much like Catch-22 - always highly amusing!

Very cool map - so that's why most of the posting seems to be done at very weird times of the day: You're all on the other side of the bloody planet. :mrgreen:

Another pin added to the new map. So there.

I used the national flag, even though I'm embarrassed to be from the U.S. at this moment.

The swearing in has just taken place. Yep. Millions of Americans were swearing at him from their living rooms.
