:shock: I don't know what you're talking about, but you already hated me anyway, so I don't care.

BTW if someday you want to tell me the reason of your hatred, go ahead, I'll be pleased.

It cannot be. :shock: The picture is supposed to be "live." They recorded your IP and took it with the satellite they hang somewhere up there in space.

Wow, that’s pretty cool.
Here is my apartment complex and my building is on the upper left from the round swimming pool.

It is true Lenny. Most the trees in my back yard were gone. Infact, the trees and grass in my area are green now.

When was the last time you used the site? It seems like they recorded your IP and the address you're looking for, then the image won't change no matter how many times you try to check it up again. It happens to me. I guess it's only "live" at the first moment you check it.

The first time I use this site was the day you posted this topic. The last day I use this site is today and the picture is the same. It happens the same when I use google earth.

Actually saying truth, I have newer seen that page, since we are enemies, me my self(big strong and smart Hard-i) and tiny little Micro-soft. That thing, redirect me to http://intl.local.live.com/ when I try to open any of those link u guys post here. So it's total garbage, it's not just that it made by M$, but it's made so poorly that they don't courage to show it to me. They afraid, that I would laugh to them.

:shock: This is really bizarre. I wonder if this means the satellite in your area is not working, then. That's why you can only receive old images that are already there in the system.

I don't get what this google earth thinking. My house is still too unclear. Yet if I move about 5 Km north out of town in map, then there are all forests and fields nicely clear. Though there are some clouds disturbing view.. shouldn't they first add clean pictures about towns? I live in a town that is second size in Estonia.. the biggest is capital with population 430000 people, that one they are made clear, but seems that 105000 people isn't enough to them. Instead they chose some forest and farms.. yeah probably those forest have big population of mosquitoes.. but the image is still unclear to see them.

I think they should try harder to impress me.

You're absolutely right, Hardi. My town has not been clear until now.

Mickey mouse Job? What's that? By the way I think I had also a little chance to be 100 000's person in my town. Since I born in same year when the town got that population first time. So you see the town haven't grown much after that. Actually it dwindle a lot on 90

"Mickey Mouse" is a slang expression used as a diminutive adjective and adverb meaning small-time, amateurish or of inferior quality. A poorly executed construction project, for instance, could be pejoratively described as a "Mickey Mouse job". Presumably, this comes from the insinuation that the object or action in question was taken as seriously as a Mickey Mouse cartoon (that is to say, not at all). The term does not imply any actual connection to Mickey.

An alternative theory comes from the fact that Mickey Mouse watches were notorious for breaking down.
