04:15 pm - Google Earth ...
Missed it by this >< much !

(Google Earth seems to be a follow-on from Google Maps - using the map information, plus information on locations of landmarks, places of interest, and for selected places, 3D information on landscape and buildings, to give a spectacular view of the world - even easier to use than Google Maps, and that's saying something. Currently, it's a Windows-only app in a very Beta version, but they've stopped allowing downloads now, with the following message :

We appreciate your interest in accessing 3D geospatial information, but due to the technical limitations of this beta launch, Google Earth has been forced to take a brief breather. Please check back with us soon.

I got to see it on someone else's PC at work earlier today; maybe they still have the downloaded file and can send it to me)

OK, I'm having way fun. So far the lab's looked up (or tried to) everyone's houses (mine's great - you can see my house, my shed, my car.. scary! - but all the eastern suburbs have crap resolution), birthplaces (Mumbai sucks for resolution too, but not as badly as Jafna), and now we're on to virtual tourism. :-)
