Bassplayer Calling Upon All Overclockers to Map Your Location!

When we launched HWBOT X at the end of November, it was our hope that overclockers from around the world would find it a useful tool to gather and enjoy overclocking together. Bassplayer immediately jumped to action and looked for fellow Chicago based overclockers to have a small meet up. It turned out that it's not so easy to figure out who is living in your neighborhood!

In a thread on the forum, Bassplayer imported a Zeemaps map of the world. You can add your location to the map and see if there are perhaps people living in your area you could share an overclocking session with. You can choose how detailed you want to be in providing your location information. So far there are about 50 markers on the map, mostly in North America and Europe.

Check out the thread here.

I created a map to help overclockers find each other! I know there have to be other people in or around Chicago that want to meet up and bench and I'm sure there are other people thinking the same thing... Map your location with your HWBot/forum name and add the forums that you frequent and can be contacted through. Let's get some awareness and some benching parties! :celebration: Editable map here.

Since USA needs Canadian guidance for almost every situations, I added my Canadian address :) I can bring Tim Horton's Coffee and Moose meat pies!

United States Random says:

added I was just thinking about how much I wanted something like this. there don't seem to bee hardly any peeps in the southwest for me to bench with//T.T

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

Canadians are welcome to participate as long as they bring Tim's when they come to meets!

United States GtiJason says:

Nice, I'm on the map

Canada Rasparthe says:

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

United States funsoul says:

Nice! Can't wait to see when more people add themselves. Gotta be more folks in the ny/nj/pa area. Thanks for getting this together bass Btw...what's the xx on both sides of your nick? Do you only slappa when nekkid? Played the soundtracks for those 70's adult films? Only play at those special CES/AVN parties?

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

I was "straight edge" when I created my online persona back in the day... no drinking, drugs, etc. I still stay away from drugs but I drink like a fish these days :celebration: I hadn't intended to use the xx when I joined OCN, but regular ol' Bassplayer was taken. The guy never made a post and I asked the tip tops at OCN if they could deactivate his account and pass it over to me but that request was met with a resounding no :(

Lies!! [MENTION=15831]xxbassplayerxx[/MENTION] I added myself, only a simple one for my city & state tho. Edit; hey bassplayer can you possibly fix mine? I'm in salem oregon, I forgot to put the forums I frequent. If you could add them that'd be great, not sure if you can? Here are the forums I frequent: Linustechtips / OCN / HWBOT / KPC

United States Bones says:

Same here - Forgot to do that before subbing the marker. If you could simply delete it I can redo the marker later with the info I needed to put in it myself.

GENiEBEN says:

Added, will be a nice thread to watch.

Belgium Massman says:

First marker in the East from me :)

it gave me a url at the end where I can edit it for myself, if you have that you can change or add anything you want.

added myself for Long Island, NY, this is a really cool idea. I'm moving to a new house soon with a pretty big garage and room so it would be nice to get together and bench.

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

Hi all, was out of town for the holidays! Glad to see so many people have logged their locations :) EDIT: [MENTION=11281]Bones[/MENTION]

I have a few weekends in mind... gotta figure out what's going on with my life first as I may be moving back to Louisville within the year. I should be able to post some dates after the weekend of the 8th.

Thinking the weekend of 1/22, 1/29, 2/1, 2/8 or any time in March atm.
