Thank you so much! I agree that all that's out there is, sometimes, so overwhelming, but it is, extremely, exciting at the same time.
re: your spot on my Revolving map: It could be that Revolver Maps picks up your ISP rather than your exact location. I'm not sure, though.
Can you tell me more about using Google Earth to see what schools in South Africa look like? That would be cool for my kids.
Just saw that you are in South Africa, and wondered if you could do me a favor. I would love to get "red dot" on my Revolver map from you. My blog is at: http://www.ljhstechtalk.blogspot.com/ and it would be cool for my students to see that someone from South Africa actually visited us! Thanks so much if you're able to do this.
