Helpful hint for Semagic users for 'Location' field
If you download a recent version of Semagic (1.5.8.1 JUST released), it has support for the Location field that LJ just added. Since many, if not most, people have a PC in a fixed location instead of entering it every time enter the location you want then use 'Save as Defaults' and you don't need to re-enter it again, unless you change the location of the PC. Note that the location is a link to Google Maps so if you use a mappable value you can jump to the map. (I used this page to get a rough lat/long and then tweaked the values by hand on Google Maps to get what I needed.)

What's interesting? I don't see that field... probably because I'm still using S1.

'Cause if there's one thing I've always keenly felt the lack of, it's the ability to disclose to random people on LJ exactly where I am.

Especially when I post more than four times in a row and, surprise, haven't moved from my location! ;)

Bah, killjoys! Allow me the geeky pleasure of a new widget! ;-)

No, see, 'cause it's friggin' pointless and annoying. Your geeky widget is making an unsightly mess of my friends page, man! Think of someone else for a change!

Besides, I mean, four decimal places? Even trainspotters don't care about that level of detail. :)

5 actually. ;-) I think the widget I used went to 8, but I trimmed it down to be accurate enough. It is rather surprising, to me at least, how far the map pointer jumps if you cut it to 4 places.

Hmm, I wonder if there is a way to disable the display in a style - there is for other things.
