Hello ~

Couldn't find a quick way to send a note the site owners here so I'll post this. I featured your site in my TNPC Newsletter today. That should be good for a large number of visitors. I also put a simple tutorial for my readers up. You can see it here:


Feel free to link to it if it is useful. Let me know if you do.

The article itself isn't online but I've pasted it below so you can see it.

Thank you!

** Hacking Google Earth by Dan Butler

Google Earth continues to fascinate everyone here. If you
downloaded the program before 5 August you will want to update
to the latest version with enhanced caching. That should give
you a little better performance.

While surfing the net I came across GoogleEarthHacks.com. Lots
of predefined bookmarks, interesting items people have found on
the maps, additional 3-D buildings and much more. I found a
weather map overlay for my local area. Handy and helps me keep
track of exactly where the bad weather is happening. If you are
using Google Earth give this a try:


The only problem I had was trying to figure out how to use what
I found. I would download the files and then what? So to help
you I made a little multimedia tutorial on using what you find
at GoogleEarthHacks.com. Advanced users will find it old hat but
the rest of you will discover ways to use one of the coolest new
toys around. You can find the tutorial here:


If you use the tutorial please drop a note to:


and let me know if you found it helpful.
