I reckon Melbourne is pretty good.  I'm always happy to be there.  I love the little lanes in the city.  :thumbsup:

Just noticed tonight that if you don't know exactly where Sydney is (which I don't, despite having been there several times) then it's almost impossible to find on Google Maps, without using the search thing anyhoo.  Zoom into WA and Perth is there, zoom into Vic and Melbourne is there, zoom into SA and Adelayed is there, zoom into NSW and Sydney is, well - fuck knows, I see Newcastle and Orange and Pt Macquarie and, well, basically who cares about Sydney anyhoo? :p

True, I have friends in Sydney but they all have GPS's so they know where they are at all times.

Do you notice when using Google maps it sometimes drops out your Internet connection ?

It's a known issue but I'd like a quick fix if anyone knows.

I would suspect this is dropping out as you say due to your browser locking up because your computer is too slow to process the javascript google maps needs to function

this could be for a whole heap of reasons

computer too slow
virus/malware scanners over analysing javascript
additional browser plugins

the only other reason I can think of is if you are using so called 3g broadband, some connection types can cause the vpn tunnel set up inside the isp's network to collapse
Certain online games used to cause dramas around this by altering packet headers to improve latency, its possible google is doing something similar

how are you going with the tech terms dodger?
