This is genius! Comic books, baseball cards, nudie mags, and a bike...how awesome is that?! Feels like I'm 12 again. Well played, sir, well played. Looks like I have to spread some love before I can hit ya again but I'm sure I'll hit ya before the challenge is over.

Great idea and the execution is also very nice. Not sure about the ground being yellow, but it doesn't offend.

I really like the style of the map. The things inside really top it all off. What program did you use to do this? Some of it almost looks like the generic flash stuff.

I did everything in Illustrator. I tossed a few of the MS Office clip art items in as well. It was just a quick bit of fun, but I'm glad it's put a few smiles on people's faces.

Is that a site that anyone can use to post zoomable pics? That would be useful for displaying Viewingdale maps, which often have a wealth of hidden detail that just doesn't show on a jpg. If so, how is it used?

D'oh, thanks. I saw that thread but didn't pick up on its relevance. I'll get around to having a look. :)

I love the choose your own adventure books. I haven't thought about those in a very long time.

I wondered if anyone would recognize them. They were a staple during a few years of my childhood.

I read every one I could find... numerous times.
