    Great New Feature! The world map...

    Guys,

    this is still in Beta but check it out - http://www.rebreatherworld.com/VBGooglemap.php you can enter your home location on it and we can see where all our members are.

    Go browse it and enter yoru location! Should be really useful for hooking up with buddies and finding out where to dive etc.

    *NOTE* If after entering your location you do not see then close down Internet Explorer and reopen it as apparantly this only affects IExplorer.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I just updated to have the cursor on top of my villa... :p

    Yes, I could walk across the street and be in the water... :D

    BTW, how could I save a picture of the satellite shot ? Right-click doesn't seem to work...

    Use print screen to grab it.

    Or for even more functionality download this http://earth.google.com/

    The basic version is free you can zoom rotate spin change height angle etc etc

    It is not dirty, but is in the mangrove. The strong tidal current got everything flowing very well. And there is practically no real pollution to speak off.

    I have been in there to "test" a few rig changes, viz is easily 5-10m depending on the tides.

    It is VERY nice indeed!

    Does anyone have the paid-versions of Google Earth ? What additional features on them ?
