Remember this?

With bjango\'s permission I have taken over maintenance of this little side project, because I thought it was just too cool to let pass into obscurity.

My first set of updates to the file can be found on the Google Earth Community message board here.

There are a few changes from bjango\'s original file. First, users are listed in the file alphabetically, rather than by country. Google Earth has graphical search features that are more than adequate to show you who is situated in a particular city, state, province or country. Listing them alphabetically made it easier to search for a particular user by name. Second, there are the nifty new icons, in BOINC\'s unique font, which indicate special things about users listed. A blue \"B\" indicates a regular user. A gold \"B\" indicates someone involved with the operation of a project (i.e. an administrator, developer, or scientist, but not a tester or forum moderator). A red \"B\" indicates the founder of an established team of five or more members. This replaces bjango\'s original set of team \"locations\", which I felt were superfluous as even a geographically-based team can have members spread all over the map.

To start with, I used the user markers from bjango\'s original file to seed the new one, but, anyone wishing to be included, please just step right up and say so! As before, merely a city, or rough location, is sufficient. I\'ll put your marker in a neutral location, such as a park, body of water, or landmark of your choice (don\'t want any cyberstalkers being able to see right where you live...)

Anyone familiar with Google Earth and wishing to customize their locations and labels can email me a .kmz file as an attachment for inclusion. Send it to bcboinc (-at-) fandom.ca

Also, for anyone wishing to be included but who have set \"International\" as your country on BOINC, I offer the following largely neutral choices:

90 degrees North latitude
90 degrees South latitude
Mount Everest
The International Date Line (somewhere in the ocean)
The United Nations building in New York City

Additions and corrections are sought and encouraged. I am especially interested to know of any user who may warrant a different colour icon or users who have either moved or have stopped crunching BOINC, and can thus reasonably be taken out of the file. Comments and suggestions are also welcome. Enjoy!

Thanks very much for all the work, Raven, and for adding me. The positioning of the placemarkers is so exact. At the moment the density of crunchers seems to be greatest in Germany.

Are you still accepting more members?

It would be nice to see more climate modellers on the map. Some of us are already there. The Google satellite images seem more detailed each time they are updated.

Thanks, Raven.

Update time! Click here to download!

A note about this update: Several users lately have been adding a team tag in front of their user names to indicate belonging to a specific team. While this is understandable, it makes trying to organize placemarks somewhat difficult, and in some cases made user names ridiculously long. As a result, starting now and in future, team tags will be left off a user\'s name when added to the placemark file. If you wish to indicate your allegiance in the file, you can always contact me and give me the URL of a custom team signature or other graphic or text to be included in your placemark\'s label (the box that pops up when a placemark is selected in Google Earth) and I will be happy to include it in the next update. Cheers!
