Re: 1169: "Expedition"

Hah, I've done this quite a bit, and interestingly I also seem to have a fascination with the high arctic. Other than that though, I like to try to follow the borders or coasts of a country all the way around at a close zoom, and see where borders cuts across towns or isolates islands or other piec...

Re: 1118: "Microsoft"

Microsoft aren't even allowed to include Windows Media Player in the European release (marked as N). This is not so. I'm not saying that there is no such thing as the N versions of Windows; but I bought a new laptop last month with Win7 Home Premium and it came with Media Player installed. I'm in t...
