A Google Maps tool needs your help!
Who would have thought that a Google Maps tool that allows you find out where you would end up if you dug a hole to other side of the earth would become so popular? Well, it has and I'm hoping to help its creator, Luis Felipe, with a bit of a dilemma. With many popular news sites and blogs from all over the world covering his cool little Google Maps creation, traffic to the site is reaching very high levels. The tool, like many self-made Google Maps tools and mashups started out on a server that was never intended to accept many, many thousands of visits per day. If you or someone you know might consider hosting this, please post a comment to this blog-post with more details. I'm thinking that hosting companies might consider hosting the tool in exchange for some ad exposure, or something along those lines.
