Considering the population on the Oolite Nightly webpage visitors map let's see how many will go public.
I'm not sure it works too well: I'm from France, and it registers the last visitor from France on February the 8th, even though I go through the wiki and the forum and least once a day. And concerning the website, I'm sure I went there several times since February.

Added myself to the map.

Well, IP geolocation accuracy to determine the nation of a user is supposed to be very high.
Anyhow this widget gives a high level idea of the visitors visits and their topology.

Yup, and a very interesting topology it is :-)

Would you have a hint for me to achieve such a feat too?
I'm quite eager.

I really don't know how it happened. I was making some toast, and one thing led to another.....

So you're saying it's the best thing since sliced bread?

Ah. My wife often does toasts. Perhaps I should warn her. [...] After checking, she would appreciate to become an pan-dimensional mega-being too.

Toast leads to a nice hot cup of tea, which can produce a strong Brownian motion - eh voilà!

Err, I can't quite find how Brownian motion would create pan-dimensional mega-beings...

How short-sighted of me! It only needs to be written to be understood! Of course, a big bang IS brownian motion at its best, and would pan-dimensionalize any beings in the vicinity, quite probably megaing them in the process, naturally.
