Now if it only had a topo layer, it would be the ultimate. I didn't know Yahoo did maps. In my area at least, they blow away Google.

I don't think that site is working anymore. At least not today. Sure would like to see it, though. I'll try it later.

Oakie, I loaded it up and low and behold it was right in my back yard? How did that happen? I was never on it before, how can it sense your location? It was centered right on Lake Jackson in Sebring. Coincedence? Pretty big world. If I go on Googl Earth I have to center it on Florida, then work my way in. Gil (The one in Florida)

Uh oh! Looks like the government has already found you. Quick, put a tinfoil hat on and play music loudly on your stereo!


All kidding aside, I have no idea why it would already be set for your house

The only thing i could think of is if you are using a autofill program for information it may have filled it in for you while loading the site.
