I don't know yet but I'm in middle America!

It traces your IP address and goes to the main hub/server or Point of entry.
I will look at it and see if I can alter the parameters somehow.
Durham is a lovely place to be after all. Smile

Still not quite right - it's got me in a pub car-park in Havant! One that I can honestly say I've never fallen asleep in!

Until I can find a way of modifying it's contents I've removed it from view as it's a bit naff at present.
If any wants a copy of it I can e mail it.

If we link to the one map controlled by either Amin or whoever we should be able to give a proper location without automation

That's really great Ian. I'm not sure how you did it and I don't have the time at the moment but If you could continue I would be grateful.

I will create a seperate block and add it to the front page portal eventually.

It is certainly useful to see where us Frenchies are located and how far spread out we are.
We just need Geoff's town that he lives in and not just 'Deux Sevres'.

Tried PM-ing but it's still stuck in my outbox in spite of all my attempts to send it...

Can you add me please? Anywhere in Portsmouth will do for a pin location!

Thanks

That was pretty good Ian....Clive's definitely NOT a saints man.

I would say more of a sinner's man actually. Twisted Evil

BTW....My map point is about 500 mteres south of my actual house. Not bad.

Evil or Very Mad Oh, dear - OK, let's start from the top:

Portsmouth = Pompey = Super Blues = FA Cup Winners, in the Premiership etc

S***hampton = Sunday Pub League Strugglers = Scummers Saints is the old term, very out of date now. In fact they hate to be called Saints fans (only because they don't care to admit it any more!). They now prefer being called Scummers. No, really!

Position of pin sounds just fine to me though. If you could point it at seat HH27 in the Fratton End, that would be hovering right over my head on matchdays! Wink

Edit: Tried dragging my pin to roughly where my seat would be - it wouldn't stick though. Possibly because I am not the owner of the pin? No matter though, it's fine as it is!

Thanks
