I posted a link to the maps.rukind.com site on rec.music.gdead. Somebody tried to use the app with their zip code:

"I tried it, but it keeps telling me it needs a 5 digit zip...04072...That's 5...It must not like 0's...Great idea though..."

I tried searching on a valid zip code where no bandmate was listed and I got an error (08033). But if I used a zip code where I knew there was someone it worked. Ideas?

I took the zipcode validator out last night for the same reason. Its tough finding free data that is complete. But, I just got some more data for more zipcodes, which I will be loading in. Also, I have points for Cities and states, its just time, time, time....

I've updated the zipcode database to be more up to date (within the last year). Although I've got some 35,000 zipcodes geocoded, I am missing a few obscure ones (which I am sure you'll find). if so, I will fix them as they are discovered.

I've also fixed the balloons to show the zipcode information correctly.

I also think I've got the search figured out so that when you press enter, the default action is to search on the zipcode.

let me know what I missed...
