Title: Juke countries
Post by: Rivers on September 26, 2012, 07:59:06 PM
The Juke Status menu item (http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?page=juke;jukesp=tunedin) is interesting. We have listeners from all over the globe, US & Canada obviously, several in Japan, several European countries, Oz, and tonight I noticed Medell?n Columbia for the first time. Have also spotted listeners in Argentina & Brazil.

International juke listeners please sign up and post if you get a moment.

Great to hear that Dom.

I'm often amazed at the geolocations tuned-in. We see a lot of US, Canada, UK, France, Deutschland, Belgique, Italia, Oz and Nippon flags on the Juke Status (http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?page=juke;jukesp=tunedin) page. But we also see listeners in places like St. Petersburg, Latvia, Bulgaria, Poland, Portugal, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Columbia, Peru, Mexico, etc., many of whom are tuned-in for hours on end. So far we haven't made many inroads into Espa?a, Scandinavia (with the notable exception of ex-pat Finn Mr. Pan currently in Berlin), China, Africa, India, Pakistan, the Middle East and the SE Asian regions. I hope to spot a Tibetan flag on there someday.

Seeing all those flags gives us a lot of motivation to keep it going and grow the listener base, so many thanks for tuning-in, wherever you are.

International listeners please feel free to register, log-in and post here, we'd love to hear from you, even if it's just a weather report.

Apologies, I knew I'd miss a country or two, we see a few Irish flags popping up.

I spoke too soon about Spain, spotted a listener in Majorca tonight.

Thanks for checking in Townes.

Spotted listeners from Bangkok Thailand, Athens Greece, Porto Portugal and Sao Paulo Brazil in the house tonight.

Some folks stumble into the juke by accident via the Shoutcast weenie listing probably and many don't stay long. Others stick around for ages. It's an ever-changing picture.

All regular listeners from anywhere on planet Earth please sign-up for the forum, stick your pin on the google map (http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?action=googlemap), and post some messages here, we'd love to hear from you.

Trabzon, Turkey, a spot well known to backpackers like me in the 70s, spotted tonight. Very cool.

The Juke Tuned In page now shows the currently tuned-in listeners on a google world map, check it out:

http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?page=juke;jukesp=tunedin

Try it out, go to the link above, click the Tune-In button, refresh the map page and see your pin appear. It's all pretty new stuff with a few moving parts so if you experience any problems with it please let us know here.

There's an intermittent problem with the google map, sometimes it doesn't display the pins due to a problem with the data coming in for some locations. Investigation underway, fix will follow.

(fixed, xml doesn't like accent characters in city names, had to utf8-encode them)

Good to see a listener from Dubai, UAE, on for some hours today.

The Google Map on the tuned-in page was a nice addition to help visualize from where everyone if listening. The only problem was it looked like, well, a Google map really. The blues and greens etc didn't really integrate well with the forum colors.

I've tweaked a bit to be more in-keeping. Have also added a 'totals tuned in by country' block (more flags) and generally improved the top layout. There are other changes under the covers to make it run fast and be more maintainable.

Nice tweaks Rivers!  Geeks rule!   :D

Thanks boss. It's a start position. There are so many permutations of coloring map elements it's mind boggling.

I'll tweak it some more, as a style you could name it 'moldy' or 'old shower curtain', I was shooting for 'sepia'.

Got to start somewhere...

I made a flag for Montenegro BTW, we have some regular listeners from there and there was no flag in the image folder, Montenegro being a fairly recent constituted country.

Existential juke experience #1: When the tuned-in page zooms the map in to show you as being the only tuned-in juke listener on planet earth, which, by extension, means the entire universe :P

I have to say though it's the first time I've ever seen that since I started messing with the juke. Well, it is Sunday night.

Rev. Gary is playing "I Am The Light Of This World", which is a strangely appropriate accompaniment to the single juke listener experience.

How did you get there? Was it a menu option that you clicked? The link url has changed, scroll back one page to see the new link.

Oh wait, I see... my previous posted link was screwed. I corrected it.

Hello Palmerston North NZ!

I've always wondered why we, nor anyone else for that matter, ever hears from Parmy S, E or W. But that's another matter.
