ZOMG! ZOMG! I've created a meme!

And it's taken me all day, too.

At the beginning of this day, when I woke up, everything I knew about PHP programming with MySQL would fit in the white space of a postage stamp. (Okay, so that's not entirely true, but I'd never written database code from scratch before. Everything I've ever done up 'til now is modifying someone else's code, which is a whole 'nother ballgame.)

So twelve hours, a thousand Google searches, and a lot of head-scratching later, I've actually taken the map of human sexuality I created, and made it interactive! You can click on the map in a Web browser to place pins showing where you've been and where you want to go, and then save your map to a database so you can show other people!

Okay, so it's still really, really crude. Scrolling around is a pain, there's no way to remove a pin once you place it (you gotta erase the whole map and start again), and there's no way to go back to a map and continue to edit it once it's saved.

But still...it works! Words can not express how pleased with myself I am right now. It's been tested in Explorer 7 and Firefox for Windows, and in Safari and Firefox on Mac. Should work in other browsers too, I reckon. And it even generates code to put into your blog automatically.

Give it a try!

And now, I am going to bed. My brain is tired.
