It did not took too long until I found an interesting script on the Second Life Wiki: A continent detector which reliably tells you on which continent you are. Or how the SL-Wiki writes:
"The Second Life grid, especially the mainland parts, is organized into interesting and aesthetically-pleasing continents, with a variety of landforms and connectivities and geographies. The continents have their own histories, their own interesting places. But because so many people just teleport everywhere (kids these days, I tell ya), all too many people aren't aware of which continent they're on, or where they are relative to the continents, much of the time. This script is a simple example of how one might determine this, and thereby become more Geographically Aware, and therefore more fun at parties."
Of course the script itself isn't too neat looking. So I put it into a nice futuristic scanning-device I once made and quickly made two more variants to make the continent detector fitting to various styles - and even an invisible one!
Anyway, it works pretty simple: Just wear it and it tells you instantly after entering a sim to which continent it belongs. Oh, and you can get it here - of course for free!
Now some posing with my newest toys:
