"motivated partly by outrage that such an important achievement should belong to Michigan," eh? I was going to be content with just holding the record for however long I held it and then wishing it happily on its way. But now I might have to try to lower it again!

Really, though, congrats on the achievement and assembling such a large crew! Sounds like you guys had fun. And, actually, being in southern Michigan and on the "warm" side of Lake Michigan, there's probably not much I can do about your record. I think you'll be safe for a little while. You're just going to have to watch out for those Minnesotans.  :-) --excellentdude 17:08, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Just trying to keep you motivated... All it will take is one hasher in the whole state of Montana and we'll be pretty much done. Actually, I expect somebody to tell the folks at McMurdo Station in Antarctica about geohashing, and that will end the competition definitively. We just have to have fun while we can. -- starbird 05:49, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure they know. They're just waiting for the perfect south pole hash so they can get the 360-multihash, coldest hash, and southernmost hash all in one fell swoop. -Robyn 08:02, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Ha! "South Geohash (360-way tie)." They might wait a long time, depending on how many 9's they want in the latitude fraction. Actually, 2009-01-31 would have been a good opportunity. -- starbird 16:30, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
They just need to get it close enough to ahieve by walking around in a small cirle. -Robyn 16:54, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
