Mmm.
I don't see you near Dallas.
The nearest is Ben in Austin, otherwise a large blank area around Dallas.
The different views that I referred to are the tabs at the top of the map- Map/Satellite/Hybrid.

When I first entered my details for the address, I used my own estimate of my longitude and latitude. When I didn't show up, I updated them by changing the entry using Google Earth figures, which are the current figures in my address, but to no effect.
I'm with you on the 256 user figure, it's just that I (over?)reacted to the power of 2 significance.

Edit ...I've been looking for the number of users you mentioned, and the only figure I can find is 666 on the User list page.
Is this where you see "over a 1000" ?

at the bottom of the main forum page it has forum stats, and says there are 1061 users.

That's odd that you can't see me on the map. I show a couple others near me as well. Maybe something is up with the 256 number - is the variable storing the number 8-bit??? Maybe it's a google limitation?

OK - I now see the "User list" stat has increased to 667, and I've found your main forum page stat showing 1062, so someone has joined overnight.
However, my map page stat sticks resolutely to 256.

SWMBO says she knew I was special, but not invisible ;)

Perhaps if I've nothing better to do, I'll count the pins on the map :dry:
