New Yahoo Map
November 3, 2005 10:56 AM   Subscribe

Yahoo!Maps 4.0 - BETA last night, yahoo launched a new map system using Flash platform with Macromedia Flex. The UI is sort of like google maps but personally i think they handle zoom-in/zoom-out feature better than google maps. Yahoo also provides you with AJAX or Flash based APIs to incorporate their maps into your website or on client application. Here is a link to developer APIs.

Wow, is this a record or something?

Thanks for the reminder, grafholic! I had not heard about this in the last hour or so.

I'd post a snarky comment, but I was a jackass n00b too.

Ok, chill, dudes, the other story probably wasn't even on the fp yet.

Is this a new record for the fastest double post?
posted by gyc at 11:08 AM on November 3, 2005


Perfectly chilled lodurr, it was a mistake, not a malicious post, however the previous post has been on the fp long enough. a couple hours.

Okay, fair enough, there have been FPPs posted right after each other, but that seems like two people posting simultaneously. Mathowie's post was up for nearly an hour before this one showed up.

I think we're going to hit a record for people asking if this is a record.

I thought that this was a case of "simultaneous co-discovery" in that both posters were crafting their posts at the same time. But, from the time stamps, I've reconsidered. My new theory is...

WHAT
THE
FUCK
GRAF!

Mods where are you? I only have the guts to be such an asshole in dead threads scrolling and now I'm getting nervous and stuff.

p.s. I miss the big tag.

hah funny.
i do apologize about the double-post, but then again, funny how you guys are good at attacking people online when in real life, you are probably nicer about it.

I also need a good, lined raincoat *detachable lining would be nice* and a nice, sturdy umbrella.

(I'm moving to the UK.)

no having a girlfriend makes you a bitter person.

Oh, and a sun lamp, I'll need one of those, too.

This call out has been remarkably nice, really. Graf, what were you hoping for when you post something that would have been the top post as you were writing it; a piece of pie and some soothing music?

Funny? Funny how? Like we're some kind of clown, here to amuse you?

You guys are quite useless for dampness prevention advisements. :P

i could be funny or sarcastic right now but instead i'm just going to be damn honest - when i said i apologize for the double-post, i really meant it and i'm not going to type some lame excuse about how that happened.
in honesty, if i can go back about an hour and half in time, i would not do the same. it was a mistake, and here i am reading all your posts only to further embarrass myself.

in a way, it's amusing how sorry i feel about this - the amount of bashing i see makes me feel like i had done something terribly wrong - terrible as in as if i had just killed someone.

and if i could make one request - i am writing this just to tell you that your point was made very clear. i am embarrassed, i am feeling pretty dumb, i am quite bit of a fool, and i just wish that nothing else happens today that'd make me feel worse than how i feel right now.

with that having been said, i do have very retarded memory and i may just as well forget what i just did and act as if nothing had happened.

Wow, graf, you have the most fragile ego in the world. Take a deep breath, walk away from the computer, and go take a walk or something. Never seek affirmation from the internet.
posted by Hildegarde at 12:12 PM on November 3, 2005


Well played, grafholic, well played!
You are going to be a valued member of our little community here. We snark because we love.
Well, not love so much as don't have anything better to do.

while i admit i spend quite a bit of time living in the zone of interweb, my ego is weak not because others poke at it but because i have a difficulty allowing myself to make a mistake, which i just did, and having others notice that i made a mistake is quite a bit to swallow, if that makes any sense. in other words, my ego is larger than what it should be.
posted by grafholic at 12:16 PM on November 3, 2005


Then our small-time ego-busting is in fact a public service. Huzzah!

I do hope your joking, grafholic. It's not often we get to play in the blue. You gave us a chance today. Well, you and the apparent fact that Matt/Jessamyn seem to have taken a longass lunch today. So thanks and stuff. We all know everyone makes mistakes, there's no reason to be sorry. Unless you've really let us get you down. OK, I'll stop now. Happy Thursday everyone.

if i say i was joking, will you attack my ego again?

How else will people ever learn the rules if not through ridicule? Sometimes, I want to do something stupid just to get the attention. Consider your self one of the lucky ones, graf. There were some good laughs in here.
