I'm sure someone has posted this before but I didn't see it. I also have
900 messages to look through so I'll be a while reading all of them.

Anyway, as I was playing with Google Earth I found the Web Cam icon and
I took some screen snaps

Yes -- this Google Earth is marvellous. Great to use before having a Fsim
flight - great for discovering parts of the world that you don't know.

This morning I had a real good look around the New Orleans area. Absolutely
fascinating . I was amazed at how the Mississippi River snakes its way out
into the Gulf. Most rivers here in Australia, end abruply when they get to
the ocean -- but the Mississippi seems to run within a thin snake of land a
fair way out into the Gulf -- is that natural or man-made?

Natural. Millions of years of depositing sediment.

There are Web Cams on I-95, the D.C. Beltway, and the 270 inter-
change area. A couple times I looked at the views from home and
decided not to go in that day since there was snow (and salt) on the
roads. 63 miles to the office is TOO far in those conditions. (will
look on server for saved stills - in case boss wanted to see).


One time.. got the idea to `Instrument the D.C. Beltway'.. that is put
sensors every MILE (or 0.1mi) and send data back to the hub wireless.
From that info, speeds and densities could be determined and fed out
via web interface as if a radar pic (and animated) with color codes
indicating traffic (ex: red for congestion).


All those trips from Baltimore to Herndon and not a single crash
or breakdown!! :)
