Hi all,

This is a world map, showing us where DB users are throughout the world. I started this on the RGT forum, but I wanna get more DB'ers registered on it.

All you need to do is download and run this DB1.x code, and click on your location - then reply and paste your clipboard (the system stores your selected location in the clipboard for convenience). Instructions are displayed on startup.

Here's a link to that code:

What you waiting for? - make your pressence known!

The Outside is a evil place to be, too much light, too much noise and too many distractions....
I went outside once and my FPS rate dropped to 5.

Hey Van why not just place this on an FTP?
users can run the program, type in thier name and then click where they are... it sends a signal to the FTP that adds to the database - simple dword + ascii dword

Must have about 70 entries now - thanks guys. I'll update again this weekend.

Vegeta, I don't have DarkMATTER, so I cant use ftp in DB, plus I know very very very little about FTP and the internet and such, HTML and Java users might as well speak Klingon when they try and teach me stuff. I have a book, 'Learn Java in 24 hours' - bought it 2 years ago and still haven't creased the spine.
