    i used to use 192.com actually bought one of their software offers on contact info around 6 years ago now… i never knew they did anything other than contact info! 😕 well i havent been on their site in years now i think on it :lol1:

    this is googles NEW search engine creation… its supposed to become the elite of the search engines… still being beta tested and lots of work still being done on it.

    It was quite weird, I typed in our trading name and loads of odd links came up, as if our name had been added to lots of fictitious stuff, anyway I clicked on the first few links, and started to get popups, and spyware. and buy this buy that popup blockers etc.

    It must have been a coincidence, but "We" had being doing major deals with major companies, buying millions in property etc,

    those maps are way better than google!!!!! On google there’s no close up of my street, but on this I can see my car!!!!!

    ……….. thank god I’d cut my grass 😉

    It doesn’t pinpoint a number on a street like Google, it just zooms into to the middle of the street. But very clear!

    marcella your right, i loaded an image of my house last night… i looked at it again and thought… "thats not my house" it was one very similar but in a different street just a couple of hundred yards away. :lol1:

    its weird seeing your car in the drive, even weirder for me, im driving out in my van as the picture is taken. if i had known ide have waved 😉

    the other site I use is http://www.flashearth.com It brings most of the mapping together. I think 192.com uses the Microsoft mapping.

    she has!

    I was up there in the workshop with Nik one day, the door opened and someone came in. We looked to see who came in and ……….. no one there. There are double doors in ……….. no wind, nothing to open the door. Very odd.
    I ran out and over into the house, it freaked me!!!! :lol1:

    192 does not even recognise queensland or australia. Flashearth is brilliant tho. Lots of choices there.
