Hi All,
I just have to share this script. I am doing a  website that needs to find
people based on location from a given area. I didn't want to reinvent the
wheel, knowing that lots of store websites give you their closest stores. I
looked at several PHP/MySQL scripts, which ranged in price from $19.95 to
$65, and none of them did exactly what I need to do.
Then I found this and it is too good not to share. It is written to execute
quickly and provides several functions concerning distance. 
I hope Micah doesn't mind!
