Since it didn't seem to be that much of a server hit, I redid the post flags to represent the country that you're posting that post from, instead of the one assigned when you registered. Check out Dave's (The W) most recent posts to see the Danish and Ukraine...ish flags.

Consider this a beta feature - I may tweak it later if I feel like I'm getting some false flags, or if I have underestimated the cycles it takes to collect the country information...

SAS now has in-cabin wireless Internet on their international flights so tomorrow should be an interested test of the new flag code. I'm flying from Copenhagen to Seattle, and the flight pretty much goes due north over out of Denmark. I'm interested in how the traffic gets off the plane and down to the ground. Does it go to a satellite and down? Does it transmit to various stations as it passes over them? The flags may provide a clue as to how Internet access on planes works. SAS is the only carrier to offer the ability for people to establish an in-plane 802.11 wireless connections on their laptops and PDA's and then send that traffic to the Internet. I'll use the on-screen flight navigator map to see what country I'm over and see if my IP (and the corresponsing flags) change.

Yes I have too much time on my hands, and will have more tomorrow...about 9 hours 45 minutes worth.

We already had one case of a user's flag disappearing - dMp. I've put a temporary patch in place but I'll have to come up with a better idea down the road.

Speaking of flags, did I see the Jolly Roger being used as some W's flag one time, or was I imagining it?

You're not imagining...although I would think the skull-and-crossbones would represent International Waters.

Hmm, when you hold the mouse over the picture it says "Security Tester".

Hey, there US Military flag should be different than the US flag too. Unless you hold the mouse over it, you can't tell it's different from the regular US flag.

I'm at my home computer now, and everything's working. So now I don't have to get a new computer.
