I just made it to 1,000,000 points, so I can imagine how much hard work you've put in to get to 2,000,000. Congratulations, Alan. :)

Congrats Alan!

Too bad that you don't get points for helping people on the forums, or you would be ahead of mapcat by now!

Hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours of dedicated map editing.

And many of these were done on Cartouche, the previous map editor that allowed one edit & one save at a time: Change a segment's geometry, save (pause). Change a segment's name, save (pause). Change the next segment's name, save (pause). Add a new segment, save (pause). Add a junction to connect it to another road, save (pause). For me, those pauses could be up to ten seconds each when the system was working normally, thirty seconds when it was particularly busy, or a couple minutes when something was broken.

So if you wonder where the attention to detail comes from, now you know.

My semi-belated congrats to you Alan. I would have posted yesterday but I was just too busy trying to catch you. :) If you ever get bored with the small stuff, like I do every once in a while, go to Miami, FL. Not really many editors down (I know of one active local editor) there and seems to be a lot of "non local" stuff that can be fixed. It is where I go when I want to take a break from the mundane.

Again congrats.

I remember paying about $200 to upgrade from 256 KB to 1 MEG! That enabled me to load the entire MS-DOS operating system into a RAMDISK so that my computer would go faster. Once I did that, I could run at the full 10 MHz processor speed and not have to wait for the slow hard drive response time.

I actually caught hell from a couple of jealous local BBS SysOps when I bought a 14.4k modem, even though CompuServ was the only thing I could connect to that worked at higher than 2400, and that required dialing a special 1-800 number, rather than the local server.
