Track Tb Progress In Google Earth Firefox and Greasemonkey to the rescue

To see it in action, view this image (70Kb)
To install it, you must use the Firefox browser with the Greasemonkey extension. Once you've got that, right click this link http://files.dixo.ne...tracker.user.js and choose "install user script...". A dialog will appear showing the script name and the pages it will modify - to confirm you want to install, click OK. Now go find a TB to track!
I wrote this very quickly when the idea occurred to me this afternoon - if you notice a problem with it, do let me know!

Many thanks to the eagle-eyed Rutson for alerting me to the problem.

Upgrade by re-installing from the original link.

Answering my own question from above.... I tried a very well travelled TB - A virtual TB and while trying to send the (very large) data file to Google Earth it repeatedly caused Firefox to crash.

Nevermine .. I figured it out.. Duh ... have to install Google-Earth. Silly me. Now it works great!

I'm confused. Where are the coordinates of the caches it has visited available on the TB page? I went and looked and I did not see them. Don't you need coordinates to make the map?

Ah, indeed it is! The various map centers. Clever.
I don't use Greasemonkey because of its serious security flaws. Knowing that the information is on that page is extremely useful, howver. Thanks!
