Thanksgiving is on the radar now, and I've started thinking about shopping for some holiday deals. So, I figure it's about time to start up the yearly thread for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Any great deals you find interesting are fair game. It's okay to go beyond GPS and to chat about items you hope to find. (This year, I'm looking to snag deals on a ~40" TV and a garage door opener )
Nothing to do with POIs here. Since winter is coming I was looking for an indoor project to keep me busy (when not shoveling snow). I thought I would experiment with learning Linux. From a little searching yesterday it looks like Fedora or Ubuntu are popular versions. I will be installing it on a home desktop computer as a dual boot and I'm not worried about any server applications.
It's that time of the year again... back to Standard Time... so - sometime today, while thinking about changing clocks before bed - take the time to change the batteries in any electronic gadget you rely on to monitor your - or your family's health and protect safety... things like Fire & CO detectors... glucose meters and those kinds of things.
Enjoy the "extra hour" of sleep...

In danger of losing your windmill?
Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.) Anything to keep your windmill alive.

Happy Halloween to all the newbies.
This week we're recognizing VersatileGuy as our contributor of the week. He's been busy making some nifty new POI file utilities like ov2optimizer, ClipFlip, ExcelFlip, and ov2scan. They're posted on his web site at http://versatileguy.dyndns.org/
Thanks for sharing!

Mapteq used to have the maps and a place to request corrections that eventually went to Garmin. The site no longer works
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.

To all those in the path of Sandy... be safe: think ahead and think smart.
something to ponder if you go to New York City
APPLE POSTS Q4 EARNINGS, MISS DESPITE IPHONE 5 LAUNCH; $8.2 BILLION PROFIT ON $36 BILLION IN REVENUE
8.2 Billion dollar profit and it's not enough for wall street:
Google and its street-view cameras already have taken users to narrow cobblestone alleys in Spain using a tricycle, inside the Smithsonian with a push cart and to British Columbia's snow-covered slopes by snowmobile.
I guess I am confused. Can someone please tell me what makes the iphone any better than all the new Android phones out there. My son and daughter in law both have the new iphone and I cannot see where it is any better than their sons Android phone.
This week our contributor of the week is Ajasaro!
As a veteran member of POI Factory he has a great deal of experience which he shares with the community in the forums. Over the last year he has helped significantly by picking up some of the "orphaned" POI files and bringing them up-to-date.
Thanks for everything you have done and continue to do for our community, Ajasaro!
I noticed this feature today, then saw an ad for BMW about this feature.
