View Full Version here: : New: Distance in profile
In my quest for how much I can procrastinate in a single day, I got side-tracked and added a distance value to your post profile based on your coordinates.
When browsing posts on the forum now, you'll see a new line under "Location:" called "Distance:"
That is the distance from you to that member.
If you don't see it, then that member hasn't entered their coordinates in their profile. Or the coordinates aren't in decimal format.
If you don't see anyone's distance, then you haven't entered your coordinates correctly. ie. decimal format.
And you thought you wouldn't get anything on the 2000 member occasion :)

Hmm well I think I'd better adjust my location then - rogerg is apparently 116km away from me but I know he's only 10km down the road!

up to now you are the distance record holder, Dave.
The hobart guys are not checked so far :)
where I can find the hobart guys :help:
How cool is that.
Nice touch Mojo, by the way you are 521km away from me.

Good on you Mojo, puts things into perspective when we are chatting !

Wow! That is cool, Terry. :thumbsup:
Hi Matt, I noticed that as well although It may be as the proverbial crow flies not as the Ute travels :) .
Still it's only down the road as they say.
Congrats as well, I see you have passed 3000 posts.

It's a worthy pursuit, Terry :P
Now stop procrastinating and get back to .. other things :)
The distance idea is great!
:rofl: you sure a funny guy!!! :lol:
Terry, if I had a arm 711km long I'd slap you inteh back of the head right now! :P

That would be my intentional lack of precision in my location ;)
25-02-2007, 06:48 PM
noone did hear me in New Zealand, all guys there are inactive!
what? the entire nation is asleep? ;)

No matter how far it says we are from each other, the furtherest you can ever get away from someone else on Earth is only half way around the Earth :lol:
25-02-2007, 10:43 PM
Some 20,027.08 Kms away (according to this anyway):
26-02-2007, 01:15 AM

I will try ultimately:
can me hear anyone in New Zealand :shrug:
26-02-2007, 07:17 AM
well done mojo. i wish i had that kind of time. 16,000km's away, wow!!! BUT it's still sunday afternoon here.

It would be good if you could further develop your idea to sniff IP addresses and triangulate them with GPS so that people roaming on wireless laptop's could have a constantly changing distance....I know what you're thinking, I used to say the same thing about Dick Tracey's wrist radio. :whistle:

Don't do that - next he'll be checking if we are at work or shot off home early to prepare our gear for a night out under the stars!
13-03-2007, 10:27 AM
Absolutely intriguing possibilities if you think about it ;)
Let's not get carried away. It's only there because it's nice to see how far away people are from you. It's not accurate to the metre. You wont be able to "track" anyone :)

With a little creative lateral thinking it could be.... Naw, forget it :P
