    Anyone want to test?

    Hey guys, I am testing some fun stuff from google...anyone interested in testing for me?

    The following URL will prompt you to install Google Gears (if not using Google Chrome) and try to find your physical location from
    your IP/Connection information. I'm not storing any information, it is just a test page.

    http://www.tartarsauceware.com/location/default.html

    Anyway, if it CAN'T find you, you will get an error, otherwise you should see a Google map.

    If you test it, could you let me know the results?

    Shaun

    It showed my location within about 2 miles. It wasn't dead on, but really, really, close.

    but then again, I work really close to downtown orlando and it zoomed in on downtown orlando, but it might do that for every city...hard telling I guess.

    Same here Shaun. I work downtown in Columbus so this just showed me a map of down Columbus. It seems to be pretty close though as it was centered, relatively, on the area of downtown in which I work.
