  1. WHAT?! I didn't remove my post! Whatever, recap of the so-called "deleted" post:

    "I was just asking someone yesterday why google hadn't attempted to conquer the mapping niche of the internet market. Now I'm wondering if it's going to be possible to map multiple locations for one trip like ms's streets & trips?"

  2. Hiya Eric. I have Firefox, but I'm a lazy Mac girl. So when will the world (or just Google) recognize us? I want to be able to use Maps with my beloved Safari. Yes, I would love some cheese with this whine... you work at Google, can't you do something?!

  3. Patience, patience! Sheesh, Safari support is coming...

  4. NICE COMMENTS FEATURE! And the maps are way f*in cool, too... I saw that on 37Signals earlier, after going there because YOU sent me that other link :)

  5. Leslie (and others)-
    You said something about plotting multiple points on Google Maps. As of right now, their regular interface doesn't allow it, but I wrote up a simple script that makes it possible. It isn't perfect by any means, but its a start. If you want to check it out, go to http://gmaps.kaeding.name.
