Back on March 27th, the Zip Code data for Find Gamers was updated.  But weirdness kept cropping up, apparently the database had some problems that I've finally fixed, tested and updated this morning.  At this time the domestic USA seems to be 100%, some of the missing locations for a few of our users aren't missing any more.  US islands and territories like Micronesia, Guam and sunny Saint Croix in the US Virgin Islands are now in the database as well.

All of the public US military base zip codes have been added as well.  Unfortunately the federal government doesn't like to hand out the latitude and longitude for those locations.  So all of those numbers are zeros, which is kind of weird if you look on a map.  Latitude 0 and longitude 0 is in the middle of the ocean south of Ghana and west of Cameroon in Africa.  So maybe thats the secret lost location of Atlantis and they're just hiding it from us.  Either way this presents a problem for APO military gamers.  So for now I'd suggest putting your base name in your biography text until I can come up with a solution.  If any military gamers have a suggestion on how to fix this otherwise, I'm open to suggestions.
