PostSubject: Google Map   July 14th 2008, 9:12 am

I wonder if someone could answer me a question here. I was just looking at the google map and it doesn't show me where I live. I live in the Northeast coast of Newfoundland but it shows me living in Nova Scotia. This map can't be that accurate. I check out a couple of others forums I'm on and its shows me living as far as Manitoba on one map. Not one of them actually shows me in Newfoundland is there a reason for this. Just wondering, Thanks.

It is my understanding that it is not necessarily where YOU live but where your provider's satellite resides. Living in the Chicago area, I usually come out on the other side of Lake Michigan, but occasionally from Canada. And occasionally I find myself in Wisconsin or Minnesota. Definitley an identity crisis when you check on yourself. It is interesting sometimes to learn where folks are REALLY from.

It's really weird, lost of peoples "dot" jumps around, Skye. Mine is always in the right place. Lucky me. LOL No matter what you are always way up in the "skye", is that how you picked your username?

lol no actually Moody, many years ago when I got my first computer and knew nothing at all my daughter was teaching me about how to use things and said you need to make up a name, well back then I had no idea what she was talking about,lol, so she made the name for me and instead of changing it and trying to remember different ones, Skye has always stuck.

Interesting, I never noticed that map before. Right now there is a guest online from Athens Greece, pretty cool.
