How do I put pin on the map ??
Try going to the "edit my profile" page, and enter the latitude and longitude of your location.

That's how I moved my flag from the bus depot (apparently the default location) to the front yard of the university, which not very far from my home. With a bit more tweaking, I should be able to see the marker out my front window. :?

Followed your advice and put the pin very close to my house.
The Google map arent high resolution over most parts of sweden, just over the central parts of Stockholm.

Tried to add myself but it doesn't show up?? Yes, I did add a shoutout message. Does it take some time to get updated? Wouldn't like to get a doubleflag.

- edit: works now - actually I'm sitting at the dock of the bay it seems, but I'm quite happy with that ;)

...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...

I'm heeeere. HI! This is my second start as an aspiring guitarist. I started out on piano as a kid but like the travel ability and the romantic ambiance of the guitar. I strongly prefer acoustic anything being somewhat of a purist. I figure that it's not romantic to have an electric guitar around a campfire is it? (funny thought) Aside from all that I just love that all those little notes on those lines can be arranged to evoke such emotion! I mean.......music is math that finally has a voice to express it's soul. And I thought I was no good at math......

Coolness. 8)

Oddly enough, just entering my zipcode placed the flag mere blocks from my house. That's good enough for me. :wink:
