What an utterly awful site! Ok, it uses the best resolution mapping available for any particular area, but:

Won't even consider running under GNU/Linux
Won't run properly on any other browser than Micro$oft Internet Exploder
Cocks up it's zooming even in Internet Exploder.

No surprise really, as it's a Micro$soft service.....

Strange, it worked 100% on mine, and on my comp at work.

For which I got a bollocking :(

Plus I don't know what GNU or that other one is :lol:

GNU = Gnu's not Unix.

Linux = a kernel for an operating system written by Linus Torvaldes

The two together make up a very very powerful, if not very user-friendly (and hence able to be powerful) operating system.

over 80% of web traffic is handled by the Apache server, which is usually run on GNU/Linux operating systems.
