Thundersnakes MAP


I started a Thundersnakes Map for the newsgroup. If your a snake, go
ahead and add yourself. ....the invites are also open to regulars
visiters. The HAMB (Hokey Ass Message Board) has one of these maps.
They use it not only because its kind of cool but it also comes in
handy for what they call "HAMB relays". ....getting parts from one end
of the country to the other via members that happen to be traveling the
direction the parts need to go. For example, imagine that CJ (sitting
in sunny Arizona) is lacking in his supply of rusty camshafts. Me,
being located in the salty North East, (who has many rusty parts) could
get the part to FastEd up in Ontario Canada who is going to a track
event in Ohio - another TS living in near Mid-Ohio happens to be
visiting relatives in West Texas the following weekend and the parts
travel with them - where another TS happens to drive a weekly route
from Dallas to Pheonix who can meet CJ and deliver the goods.

Its also cool to see where everybody is located and to see where the
concentration of folks are.

Anyway, here's the link to the Thundersnakes map.

http://www.risingconcepts.com/frapper/thundersnakes

There's a satelite mode and a mix mode that shows some roads and
topography. You can also zoom in on areas as well. You can check out
the HAMB map to get an idea of what a mature map looks like. The link
for the HAMB map is here:

http://www.risingconcepts.com/frapper/hamb

It is not the fastest website and it takes plenty of computer HP and
bandwidth so slow connections and slow PC's may take longer to move
around on the map.

Enjoy!!

-Mike.

If you do go to the HAMB map, zoom out and check out all the members
from other areas of the world. Technology is just a wonderful thing.

I'm on there for what it's worth. I don't get to go anywhere much anymore,
as I work 28 days on and 2 days off. At least the Sundays are double time.
I get to be off 2 weeks from today WOOHOO!

I am in one of the few states without a name on it and no cities listed.
Even Bill S. has NJ labeled.

Neat idea, I added myself and uploaded a pic. I don't see how to
associate a pic with myself without adding myself again, though. Maybe
I'll figger it out. It is Saturday, and my computer aptitude drops on
the weekend.

I see this map is not Netscape-friendly. Web developers seem to be
getting ever closer to "we don't care about Netscape any more".

It would have been neat to see where Trevor was on this thing. He seems
to have completely disappeared. Maybe he's webside, anyone know? And
what about the rest?

Come on, Snakes! It ain't that cold out yet, so add yerselves. This is
a good way to help kick this newsgroup in the ass, and get it moving
again. It's like a ghost town around here since CJ "left". It doesn't
have to be, ya know...

I need DSL so badly it pains me. Again, great idea, Mike. I'd like to
see us start using it as you suggested.
