Where am I now?

During my last trip to the USA, I took out a subscription to plazes, this'll allow people to know roughly where I am. They have a flash badge which I have inserted onto the sidebar on my "About me!" page.

Its also here...

Download Flash plugin

Unfortunately, I can't find the Linux version of the plazer (their client agent), despite having asked them for a pointer, and attempted to 'google' it  and so given I'm mainly using Solaris as my desktop, which they rudly describe as 'legacy' the timeliness of the geographic data is less than it might be, but it should give you an idea of where I am. Let's face it, a bit of inaccuracy is probably good, close enough for my friends, far enough away for the rest of you :)

They distribute agents for windows and the mac, and they claim Linux. I propose to see how good the Solaris Express Linux compatability offerings are when I get myself a Linux agent.

Try the Python version at http://kybkreis.org/wiki/index.php/PyPlazes or check out Peter Rukavina's plazes development site at http://ruk.ca/w/index.php/Plazes. Might take some hackery. There is also a Java webstart version that I used to use at http://www.cyber-junk.de/ws/plazes/jwsplazes.jnlp
