Sounds good, but it hanged Safari, and FireFox (Mac) doesn't like it either.

UPDATE: Mologogo is coming back to life, don't try to use the clients just yet, we will (hopefully) be fully operational by end of day Sunday Oct 30th). We experienced a major disk failure on 10/27/05. We are working to bring the service back up as soon as possible, we are deepy sorry for the inconvenience.

Also, I can't be the only one who finds this hilariously surreal that one purposely setup an account to allow a 3rd-party to know where you are at all times, can I?

basicchannel: My feeling exactly, I wish they would just give you the applet and let you transmit your coordinates (encrypted!) to your own bloody server.

basicchannel: At least it's still optional.

Yeah, their JS is hanging in windows firefox for me too.

Looks pretty cool though, I wish their installation was simpler and non-warranty voiding though.

I love how they put "friends" in quotes.
Yeah, keep track of your "friends".

Nextel only.

It's GPS-based, and until the United States catches up to the rest of the world, location-based-services will be treated like some exotic luxury.
