    Has anyone been on Google Maps lately? They have a new feature called Street View that takes you down to street level. It is pretty scary, you can go right to your front door. :eek:

    Wheels, the "live view" isn't available everywhere, normally its only an option in metro areas where they have traffic cams mounted everywhere that are viewable to the public. Most area's are not viewable...

    even better is if you request driving directions from Google to Europe :p

    Smokes:

    go to maps.google.com and just enter your address and it will give a overhead view of your house.
