Well I can't get it to work either. Three times now I have tried it and each time have been disconnected from the internet. Is that a problem with being on dial up?

This map thing is really neat. But this user messed up. I put my little person where I thought I lived....and THEN I used the satellite and zoomed in. Yes, I did things in the wrong order (I'm generally pretty good at reading instructions...not this time tho). Anyone know how to remove the little guy so that I can locate him again in the right place?

danno. righto, you were correct to the very street! thanks. i have arrived. if you want to add my moniker, sarah, that's cool.

okay. what is an icon and where is the damn thing?

danno, i know you just had this map in mind before you even suggested this idea. you little planner, you.

now, if you devoted yourself to that table project as much as you do to minutia on the computer, it would be done. finished. (re-) finished. *teehee*.

yeah greg. where is paula?

That's nifty. I added myself kinda sorta near where my house actually is—city skepticism and all.

I did the same thing. The little person landed 150 miles from where I actually reside.

James, I got it to work (I think) :D and I have dial up ... so there must be some other problem :wink: They don't have the very closest zoom for my area, but still pretty close.
