    Does this work like it is suppose to? I have signed in several times since this feature was added and my location has never been reported on the map.

    The map updates (inserts little red dots) every 24 hours, Dusty. For a more up-to-the-minute report, click on the map. It will give you a list o the folks who have visited in the last 24 hours (who haven't yet been turned into little red dots.) If you don't see a listing of your city, state, and country, then your ISP has blocked or partially blocked it so the address can't be recorded. For example, we've been visited today by someone from (blank), (blank), United States, according to the list. All but the country of origin has been blocked. Maybe that's you.

    With all good wishes,

    Because of coincidence with my viewing times, I do believe those are mine! Is it my settings that are blocking the data?

    It isn't totally accurate. My visit is listed as from Arlington, Texas and I am in Fort Worth. But, that is pretty darn close. ;-)

    My visit was listed as from Columbia, TN and I am in Lewisburg, TN which is about 20 miles away. I guess I can live with that.

    My guess is that your ISP's local hub is in Columbia. For example, if you have Road Runner, then Times Warner probably ties into the Interenet "backbone" at some nearby large city, say, Columbia. The hub is recorded as the location where the Internet packet originated, even though it actually came from a little further down the wire. For these reasons, the map is an inexact instrument, but reasonably interesting nonetheless.

    It's a little Java applet that displays a world map with red "push-pins" that tracks where vistors to this site are coming from. I found this app on the Internet and decided to give it a try. I thought it might be interesting for those of us who are using this forum to know where we're coming from, geographically speaking. You can find it on the "Forum Entrance," about 3/4 of the way down.

    With all good wishes,

    I am now convinced that I am being counted every time I log on. The time that I do log on is shown on the map page. I am one of those commas.

    You're counted as a single "Place", but each time you log on the map counter adds one to the "Views." I think. It's not well defined on the MapLoco web site. But my understanding is that the "Places" is counter for the number of unique places each day, and the "Views" counts the number of logins. The red dots accumulate over the lifetime of the web site. That jives with the numbers I'm getting from Google Analytics. I'm a little disappointed that we've only scored 20 or so red dots in the few days since I posted the map, but we're new and still not well known. That will change with time and effort. According the Google, our views for the entire web site (per day) are going up steadily.

    With all good wishes,
    Nick

    It appears that I am the only one not "doing it right".

    Every other entry has a specific location associated with it. I only get that "comma". Oh well.

    Well, Dusty, I guess you are destined to be just a "comma" in the "sentence" of your WCF life. ;-)

    I doubt it's a question of doing it right or wrong, Dusty. It is most probably a setting in the server of your Internet Service Provider, and he or she most probably made the setting to protect you from virus and phishes and Things that Go Bump in the Night. If you were to, say, knock over a convenience store so you could afford a set of Lie-Nielson hand planes, you wouldn't want to make it easy for the FBI to find you by looking at MapLoco. Your ISP is actually looking out for you and is making it possible for you to continue with your life of crime or woodworking or cow tipping or anything else you might might do the requires some anonymity. Besides, it gives you an air of mystery. We all look at at MapLoco and wonder, "What goes on between those commas...?"

    With all good wishes,
