place an icon on a map

// Create our "tiny" marker icon
var icon = new GIcon();
icon.image = "http://labs.google.com/ridefinder/images/mm_20_red.png";
icon.shadow = "http://labs.google.com/ridefinder/images/mm_20_shadow.png";
icon.iconSize = new GSize(12, 20);
icon.shadowSize = new GSize(22, 20);
icon.iconAnchor = new GPoint(6, 20);
icon.infoWindowAnchor = new GPoint(5, 1);

// Center the map on Palo Alto
var map = new GMap(document.getElementById("map"));
map.addControl(new GSmallMapControl());
map.addControl(new GMapTypeControl());
map.centerAndZoom(new GPoint(-122.141944, 37.441944), 4);

// Creates one of our tiny markers at the given point
function createMarker(point) {
  var marker = new GMarker(point, icon);
  GEvent.addListener(marker, "click", function() {
    marker.openInfoWindowHtml("You clicked me!");

// Place the icons randomly in the map viewport
var bounds = map.getBoundsLatLng();
var width = bounds.maxX - bounds.minX;
var height = bounds.maxY - bounds.minY;
for (var i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
  createMarker(new GPoint(bounds.minX + width * Math.random(),
                          bounds.minY + height * Math.random()));

Also, for the 43 of you (literally) that sent me the link to the new  
Google Map API or news stories about it, yes, now that they have  
terms that will allow findU to use it, I will be adding that  
capability, but give me a day or two to unpack!
