Sleepy Axons

Well, it seems like the Sleeping Princess is giving us a sneak peek at what Axons will turn up come Tuesday. And my, are there a lot of them.

I assembled a bunch of different posts on the subject and applied a pinch of Perl to come up with the locations associated with the raw lat/long coordinates. Hopefully that'll be at least somewhat useful to people. I just wish I knew a site that gave streetmaps given lat/long coordinates.

{rant}If someone else who's done some work on the subject is reading this, for god's sake when you post your version, don't sort by the time! It's the most useless part of the triplet, really. Most people just want to know if there are any coordinates near them, so you're much better off sorting by lat or long.{/rant}

If perchance there are any PMs reading this, is there a chance we'll get a puzzle? Not a toy one like the Princess is so fond of - where it takes less than an hour to solve - but a real puzzle.

Waiting for people to turn up at payphones that may or may not ring depending on technical difficulties is not the most exciting challenge in the world.

Filter by proximity to lat/long

I can't imagine you mean this, but rand mcnally gives .jpg street-maps for lat/long.

Yeah, I know that now. There's already a page up with a more useful list (hopefully the coordinates I assembled helped) including 3 different kinds of maps.

Go search on Unfiction if you want it - I'm feeling too lazy to hunt it down right this second. :)
