Development: February 2006 Archives

In the "because I can" department: As an exercise in messing with the Google Maps API, I have started geocoding some of the addresses of creators of (adware and other) products that we have in the spywareguide database. Then with a little php and javascript glue, made a nice overview map on it.

- Some of them have really neat offices. Select one, zoom in to max level and switch to "satelite mode" to see them.

- Look at some of the exotic locations! Here is one in Hawaii!
