A few things of interest:
- I started to color code the points by the time they registered, and then I thought I’d do a gif animation over the duration of the beta, and then I realized I’d already spent way too much time on this!
- I got a flurry of Japanese sign ups and tweets, mostly referencing this nice article on 4Gamer.net. I should probably have the sign up page translated into Japanese and Korean…
- Are there really a bunch of sign ups from Arviat, NU, Canada, or is that a bug in the free IP geolocation database I used, or my code? Also, Sao Tome? Oh, wait, duh…Sao Tome is right near 0,0 lat/lon, so that’s probably just a bug! Arviat is a mystery, though.
- I got the map image from here, but be warned, one of their “Mercator” projections isn’t. I thought I had a math bug for an hour or so in the code I hacked up to render this.
Okay, back to work on the auto-updating and content packing! Fun fun fun!
