Thank you, ambrus. I was on the form before, and it got it wrong because, well, because I had no that lat/long tag yet. Fortunately you remind me about it :-) Due to careless copy/paste under excitement, I fed the scanner with:

<!-- Location:latitude=-006.36.58,longitude=1 +06.48.58-->
It gave me,
Argument "1+06" isn't numeric in abs at /home/system/perlmonks/monkmapper.pl line 839.
Node 607636 has a valid location tag (latitude=-006.36.58,longitude=1 +06.48.58)
This is only a warning, but I think it can be useful to jcwren or someone maintains the script.

Anyway, that wrong input let BigMonkMap put me on the middle of nowhere around Atlantic Ocean. And I guess it was about 20-30 dots away from one of African coasts. But now, I can tell my kids that their dad's on the map. A special map that is one of its kind. And somehow it makes me really think that I'm really nothing but a single red dot .....

Well, shall we?
