Works only in Chrome (needs websocket).

Currently, it also shows forwarded transactions and blocks thus you can see how they spread through the network. I might change that in the future.

Great stuff. Small donation sent.

What is it supposed to do when it's working? I've downloaded Chrome just to see what it does and I can only see a blank map.

I guess you are doing some Bitcoin network monitoring to see, where the transactions and blocks come from. Do you have several such listening nodes?

Try a "send to self" transaction. There should be yellow dots appearing all over the map from nodes that forward that transaction.

Not working. Blank map. Chrome 11.0.696.71, Linux 64-bit.

I have zero experience with Chrome. Do I need to download a plugin?

I'm also running Chrome 11 on 64-bit Linux. It should work without plugins. Can you rightclick on the page -> "Inspect Element" -> Console and check whether it says "connected"?

Hrm, can you open the Network tab, refresh the page and check if a line with ws://eu1.bitcoincharts.... appears and that it's status code is 101?

Can you retry? I changed some TCP settings on the server that *might* be the problem.

That's a fascinating chart/world thing, thanks for sharing!  I just sent myself 0.10 BTC and saw the world light up in yellow.  Tongue

I am assuming it doesn't show all of the nodes, but how do you even begin to gather information from some of them?

I hacked my python client to connect to as many nodes as possible. Currently, it's connected to about 900 nodes. Above that, it seems to take some time to discover new nodes, that are accepting connections.

Working now. Cool.

Is there a way to define how long are the dots lit?

You could save the page locally and change the fadeOut line. Maybe I'll add some control feature tomorrow. Raw transactions next to the map (like on the list of unconfirmed transactions) might be useful, too.

Makes sense.  Very nicely done though, I like it.  Smiley
