I got as far as placing my chip on the map, but then it wanted too much info so I gave up.

To repeat something I wrote elsewhere about this:

Regarding personal information: For example in finland a website is mandated by law to maintain a privacy policy document which will explain the contact information of the registry maintainer, the specifics about the actual information maintained, the purpose for maintaining the registry, and to who and under what circumstances can the information be disclosed.

I'm sure having such document around would alleviate some fears people have about disclosing their private information.

I generally don't have a problem providing personal info when there's a good reason, but they really don't seem to have one for requesting all that info. Phone number? Are they gonna give me a call to make sure I put my marker in the right spot on the map?

But anyway, they were nice enough to accept fake information.

just use the Long and Lat of the nearest big city to you

that's good enough. all the map is supposed to do is show a pattern

Too much personal info needed, else I'd do it. My neighbourhood is shite enough without having to worry about international Amiga thieves waiting for me to take a holiday  ;-)  lol


Hi Save,

I added myself on the map, so you know where I live now. I say this because I live a few miles from you actually. He he.

For those who would want to steel my antique computers, I work from home and I know chai-t. Hatchaaaaa!

I just added myself. For the moment, I am the only one in Alabama.
What Wayne is doing ? I know he lives few miles away from me.
I also register my MCC board as an Amiga :-).

I guess I am not the only paranoid person.  I put the largest town near me. Longview has about 75000 people.

Not sure if this is keeping anyone out, but the site doesn't seem to load correctly (at all?) in IE, I had to open Firefox to access it.
