Chatty Charley thread for the week of February 18th 2008

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Local Search V2 services. The Get Me My POIs application as stated uses the Yahoo!

Downloading sound files

I'm having a problem downloading sound files to my computer from this site. I cannot save or save as. What am I doing wrong? Can someone help, thanks.
