Through the wonders of modern internet technology I have set up a map to locate our various members. Adding your location is strictly voluntary, but feel free to join me as I feel very lonely. http://www.frappr.com/dbstalkcom Let's see how many we can get on the map.

If you do some exploring on the map you will notice that you can zoom in and you can switch to satellite view (which is appropriate for those of us here).

Nick, I really don't know if I should allow that picture that you posted to stand. Did you by chance get model clearances from those folks in the shot? :lol:
