Remember this?

With bjango's permission I am taking over maintenance of this little side project, because I thought it was just too cool to let pass into obscurity. To start with, I'll be using the user markers from bjango's original file to seed the new one, but, anyone wishing to be included, please just step right up and say so!

As with the original, merely a city, or rough location, is sufficient. I'll put your marker in a neutral location, such as a park, body of water, or landmark of your choice (don't want any cyberstalkers being able to see right where you live...)

Also, for anyone wishing to be included but who have set "International" as your country on BOINC, I offer the following largely neutral choices:

90 degrees North latitude
90 degrees South latitude
Mount Everest
The International Date Line (somewhere in the ocean)
The United Nations building in New York City

I hope to have a first run of the new file within a week. Comments and feedback are appreciated. Cheers!

KSMarksPsych: You were. I have you in the new one.

Bird-Dog: Didn't know there was one before! The search in GE comes up as being near Middlesbrough. Is this correct?

Rod: Done.

Mike: Added, though Chum Creek is in an area that doesn't have a high-resolution image to work with. Instead of the lake, you're pretty much right on top of the town, as far as I can tell.

Bird-Dog: Found Norton. Your marker is in what appears to be a farm field near a residential area, next to a major motorway.

Chipper Q: Done. Your marker is on the world-famous beach. :)

Thank you. That road will be

Thank you. That road will be the A19, only about half mile away. Lots of farm land and tracks round here, nice for walking the dog.
