Journal: Add Yourself to the Location Map

Journal by V50

Having nothing much to do today, I wrote a Perl script to record people's locations. It is a simple matter of entering your name, location, and clicking on where you live.

I'm not sure if anybody actually reads these journal-things, but if they do, feel free to add yourself and/or as many goofy entries here.

Heh, I haven't used this in a while. Over a year actually. And I haven't posted in almost a year. I wonder if anyone is going to see this?

For those who can't read leet-speak, the original message.

This is a test of my new leet-o-matic perl script. If this message appears leet to you than it is working.There are probably about 20 of these already but I wrote it on my old 486 laptop when I was in the middle of nowhere.

Now, on to write a web based frontend!
