Today's update: Liverpool (Norris), Amsterdam (rennell) and Anchorage (I couldn't find Barrow for Earl Finkler) added.
Cyburbia World Clock v1.21
This applet supports up to 16 different clocks, so there are still 4 slots free. :) Any others that I'm missing?

Where I am from

Hi I am new to the forum. I am from Northwest Arkansas. Bentonville to be exact. Home of Wal-Mart. I work for a consulting firm that has completed approx. 1,190 Wal-Mart/Sam's Clus/Neighborhood Markets across the nation. We try to design more friendly sites but Wal-mart always says "If the City is not going to make us do it, then we don't want to spend the money" And this comes from the biggest retailer in the world.

Skel-very cool world clocks. Us Hoosiers need a special clock, though, we're kind of in our own time zone, or at least some of us are...part of the time....depending on which part of the state it is....can some of the other Hoosiers help me explain Hoosier time here?

Bath, Maine

Hey, I just realized that I'm not represented on the map. For all proactical purposes, you can put me smack in between the two other Maine dots, right on the coast. :-D

So here it is... updated on January 24... the new Cyburbia Map!

Congratualtions to Sydney, Australia and the New York metropolitan area on getting big dots. Albany and Baltimore are one Cyburbian away, so come on you Baltimorons and Albanians!

India... well, I just don't know the country well enough and don't have a good map, so give me some directions and I'll move those dots where they belong.

Niyojak and Octa Girl, let me know where to put your dots.

There are still no Cyburbians in Vermont, Connecticut, West Virginia, Arkansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada or Hawaii.

I am located in Charlotte, NC. This would be on the NC/SC border almost in the center of the two states.

Just outside of Buffalo, NY, although I'm currently in school at Binghamton which is on the PA border just west of where the NY/PA border starts to loses its straightness.

With all of the changes, I thought I would update the map early. Boiker, you have been relocated. The same is true for Trail Nazi and Donk. Enjoy your new dots. If you have joined recently, you are also added. Some of you get a dot. Others (DC Metro, for instance) have to share a dot.

Cardinal, just a reminder that I've relocated to Abilene, Kansas from Leavenworth/Leawood, Kansas.

Mississippi needs more representation :-D . So if I qualify, how about a dot for in the area of Hattiesburg, MS. South and East of the other Jackson, MS dot.

Well, my dot should be moving around 500 miles north in a week or so... just so you remember for the next update :) Although considering that my dot is an aproximatelly 200 kilometer radius circle in scale to the map of Chile in the image, you won't have to move it much... :p

In real scale... Chile would be longer that the US East Coast! (The comparative length would go from Florida all the way up to even Canada...) But since the cyburbia world map uses different scales for each country, Chile looks like a little shrimp. :p

I wonder how many people live in the Kalamazoo MSA, (K-zoo, Battle Creek, Portage... and such)

I know of at least 3 regular posters... how many do we need for a big dot?

Here I Am!!

And just for those who I know are mispronouncing it, it's "McDonna." Not Scottish-accented...we don't kid ourselves down here. :D

Or, rather, if you're south of ATL, it's MackDonna.

What can I say, we're Southern.

If someone could help me do this picture thing? That would work out real nice.

Here it is... long-awaited... the new Cyburbia Map! Budgie's been nudged, New Hampshire's dropped a dot, and everybody that has joined through March 17 has been added (except Hindered - where does the dot go?).

Great job, but how did we lose Maine to the Canadians? :)

LOL. Them sneaky Canucks! Pretty soon they'll be chomping on Da UP, then Minnesota, then North Dakota. Who knows where they will stop!

So Tim Horton's the Prime Minister now? Hopefully he'll do a better job than the lead singer from Loverboy did.

And he's doing a great job considering he's been dead for the last 30 years.

Look out Michigan - you're next ;)
