This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
POI Factory was offline for a while today due to a network outage at our hosting company. The outage started around 9 am eastern and lasted approximately two hours.
EDIT: A second outage started around 1:45 pm eastern and lasted approximately 1.75 hours.
Sorry for the troubles.

I have tended to take three coordinate readings for locations being recorded in a POI file and averaging the results. Any thoughts on whether that is a worthwhile approach?
Another thought, you can drop a latitude/longitude marker in Google maps. But I have often wondered how accurate the GPS coordinates are in Google maps. So far I have not observed any discernible discrepancy.
It would seem that Bluff City failed to follow new state law that went into effect in July. The new law sets a minimum distance for a change in speed limits before a red light camera.
Sad to admit, but this looks like interest in revenue.
If you have an OnStar system in your vehicle you may want to disconnect it pretty soon. OnStar will begin selling user data!!!! And cancelling your service won't stop the data collection, you have to actually deactivate the data connection.
We'll have to find out more about this.
We are looking at a trip to Savannah and would expect to be driving along I-90 and I-77 on Columbus Day.
This will take us through Pennsylvania and West Virginia, that day. This is the Canadian Thanksgiving, so we have an idea what to expect in Canada. Unfortunately we have no idea if this is considered an extra busy travel day for our American friends in this part of the country.
This was sent to me and it is Good. Hope everyone enjoys it.
If you are going to Alaska from the lower 48 it is best to fly or have a large bank account just in case.
Just found this at the US State Dept website:
This week we're recognizing jgermann & Strephon_Alkhalikoi.
Both are regular contributors who've recently shared some thoughtful posts in the the forums.
It can be tricky at times to keep the dialogue productive, particularly when there are differences in opinion or strong feelings involved.
Some of you might be interested.. while others may not.
Has any one used Roadtrip successfully with Mac Lion?
Due to a family issue, I was away from here about 6 months. Now,,,,,,,, I am back. This is a great place.
There's been plenty of discussion on POI Factory about the Lightsquared project. Now the Department of Defense is raising the same (interference) objections mentioned so many times here: http://www.defense.gov/News/NewsArticle.aspx?ID=65355
The TV coverage for the Rugby World Cup is pretty poor. The USA v. Ireland match was on NBC, as will be the New Zealand v. Canada match and the Final.
Had something very unusually happen this morning, I use POI Extra to manipulate files, I went to use it, well Norton Internet security decided it was behaving unusually, and removed it from my PC, this is not the first time I used it, but the first time Norton IS, actually SONAR decided to remove it, didn't ask if that is what I wanted it to do just did it.
Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the site, and new to the world of downloading POI's to my GPS so I just wanted to say hi!
Just a heads-up to those who live in Arizona. ADOT has re-opened registration to the next 2500 people who drive pre-approved Hybrids (Toyota Prius and 2 Honda models) to get the Fuel Efficient Vehicle license plates. These give anytime access to the HOV lanes.
