Nick,

http://olpcMAP.net zooms in way too much when you search on the word
"Indonesia" -- showing just one of the several deployments/volunteers
across this broad country -- can you fix this to show a more high-level
view?

The issue here is that only one point uses the word "Indonesia".  If you want your project to show up in a search, use that word in your marker.
Another example: when I search for Sudan and there's only one related project, I see that project in North Dakota.  It's the only one on olpcMAP working with Sudanese people, so it's the one you want to see.  If someone else starts writing about Sudan, search will respect that.

Just in case, there is always a Google Maps search result on the left sidebar.  Click that and you'll see the map.

This is fixed now, so I won't ask questions.

(The issue had been worse than I even stated earlier -- actual/humble Indonesia deployments were being ignored -- and searching for "Indonesia" led to 1 individual's gossip in Malaysia ;)
