[OT] Canadian postcodes - nearby users

Sorry this took so long, Canada peoples: I bought a subscription to a canadian postcode database with lat/long and so now »/who works for finding local dslr users. Big whoop, I know. But I'll use it for a 'nearby review' function at »/reviews soon, which might be more useful.

Nice. Thanks justin. And thanks for all the little site tweaks lately. I like the way IM's are done now.

I punched in my postal code, instead of typing out the actual city and province, and it pulled up the location. Very nice!

I see that the database is formatted according to Canada Post addressing standards--in other words, ALL CAPS. That's too bad, but it's still nice to have an even more Canadian friendly site.

Thanks Justin!

Seems I'm one of the few users in Owen Sound. Only 2 others within 20 miles, which is surprising.

It's cool.

I just wish postal codes were not down to 4-5 house on a street.

glad to see it isn't directly shown on the pages though.

Weird how the "C" in "BC" is lowercase.

Cool, Thanks Justin. Now can you add Atlantic and Newfoundland time zones in the preferences?

Sure, but Canada/Atlantic is already there, does it not work right?

Never mind, now it works. When I first tried earlier, it failed. I tried right after posting that and it worked... I thought I edited in time.

Can postal codes entered without a space be parsed so that they also give search results? I know the proper formatting for postal codes uses a space after the third character but over the years I've got used to it either way. Maybe I'm just lazy.

do you mean in the /who page, or in your profile?

It is there. I haven't checked it in a while. The last time it was not there. Thanks!

Ib the who section. I tried earlier without spacing (out of sheer habit), and it did not work. I had to add the space for it to work.
