I was looking at my transaction map to see how many states I'd sent to and received from and noticed something interesting.  Last year I mailed a book to a friend in New Orleans.  He has since moved to TN.  On my transaction map, it now shows that I mailed the book to TN and not LA.  I suppose that makes sense, since we're mailing to members and not states, but it was one of those things I hadn't thought about before.

That is interesting that it is tied to the member sent. I had never thought of that before either.  I love the map feature.  I even love the estimated journey the mail truck takes.  I found out one time when using another computer that the truck honks!  I really jumped when it happened.  My computer doesn't have sound.  I'd probably be on the computer a lot more if it had sound.  So it's probably a good thing.

Oy, I'd never heard of this before.  I hope, as I'm about to complete my map, that I'm not going to have to re-order things as folks move.  ::::sniffle::

You people in ND, DC and Maine, I forbid you to leave the state :-)

Cheers,

Catt

I realized that just recently when my map said I had mailed a book to Hawaii. I certainly would have remembered that!   I had in fact sent that book to someone in CA and they must have moved shortly after.    I love my map!!

I just recently (a couple weeks ago) received books from Alaska yet my map does not reflect that. Does anyone know how often this is updated?
