In keeping with tradition, I'll be hosting a BOGSAT event at my place too. I will post details on this thread as they develop. But the location would be 1010 West Main St. which is my vendor lot just east of the Yacht Club, across the street from "Teds" the old truck stop, and west of the Stagecoach motel. We have food vendors with indoor and outdoor seating and lights. So we could, actually do a late-afternoon to evening event, to accomodate people working during the day. Finding your own campsite to go home after dark is up to you, however!
Anyone who wants to have a gathering anywhere in the US is welcome to do so. If you want to arrange a get together with other users in FL, go for it. All it takes is some number of people agreeing to be in the same place at the same time. In January, in the SW, that means Quartzsite. Lots of people (maybe 100,000 or so) head to this part of the desert. I still don't know why, but it is what it is. So if 30-50 people who own Datastorms are going to be in the same area then that's a good reason for a BOGSAT!

A good plug for the Datastorm Users Group just came out in email from the "Good Sam Club CyberSam Newsletter, January 2007." It is in the article called "Satellite Internet – A Great Option For RVers."
Good work Don, now more people than ever will hear about Datastorm and click on the link to your Map.

So John, I have to ask, was this a regular domestic cat, or something like a Serval?

Yeah, I've had a few point out the "a company called Datastorm" which provides "a real–time map"
Being the glass-half-full type, I can only say "There's no such thing as bad publicity" and "Print whatever you like, just spell my name (or URL) right"!
"DataStorm Real-Time Mapping Co., Inc." We want in! We will be waiting for the initial offering. We'll want the T-shirts and the license plate frames. Also, Julie is asking about an antenna ball?
What--You didn't get your baseball cap or collectors GEO-COIN, yet? T-shirts, license plate frames, antenna ball--what kind of outfit do you think this is anyway?
Mac: Domestic 22 pound Orange Tabby American Short Hair. My next kitty coming from Florida in about five weeks is a RAGDOLL breed. (You can go to my weBlog and see a picture of her). Just click on the link below.
Bill--great idea--you never know, I might even try to organize a Florida BOGSAT while I'm there...stay tuned.

One wonders how some writers can actually make a living given such poorly researched information.
The article is filled with errors. Thankfully an educated consumer is a dealers best customer and best advertisement.
BTW I do have a datastormusers geo-coin...they are very cool looking and have a nice heavy feel in your hand.

I have a hunch that the article caused a lot of members here to say "Oh, right, I've been forgetting to update my map location!"
A couple of months ago, we set a record at 602 members simultaneously on the map, but lately it has been in the 565-585 range. Yesterday morning there were 603, and this evening 614. A few new ones, but most of that 30-50 difference is people who have been on the map at some time in the past.
And it also reminds more than a few of us to click on the donate button, I would bet.
On a different note, we would like to propose nametags for the BOGSAT. Last year was our first. We were sorry that we missed meeting a lot of people just because we knew them only by name and not by sight. We grew tired of asking "Who is that?".
