    And if you're really bored, you can look at our new Aerial Photography (of Houston, Texas) deployment at http://www.houstongims.org/. :D (speaking of geeks...)

    What's a confluence?

    Say, those guys are in Galveston. I wonder if there's a geekly confluence here in southeast Texas....

    A confluence is where a latitude and longitude of whole numbers meet... no decimals.....

    Oh! That makes sense...

    But I didn't see on that site where they talk about them...

    (sheesh, serious hand-holding going on here...) :rolleyes:

    I wondered what "interesting diversion" might be in here...
    and just as I suspected the brows :smart: are a blazin'! :laugh2:
    Handholding... photographing confluences? ... I always wondered what a confluence looked like though I know I've seen them...
    I have a pic of the Equator here somewhere if anyone is interested... well it's mostly a sign saying where the equator is... :laugh2:

    Odd that Pol... I get the same popups from that site as I do here on MB.... took note that John and he subscribe to the same popup company....

    Why aren't we all in the popup company business?!
