Helena Valley was snapped on a Wednesday around February.
Wednesday because the bins are out for people up the street.
February because it's my folks car parked in front of the garage on the right not off on the grass indicating that my sisters car hadn't been purchased. Also the neighbours opposite the road have all their lawn ripped up. They were only starting to get ontop of all that around March. Could have been Jan I suppose but more likely to be Feb.

Really what I learnt from the screenshots is: Spartacus appears to be using a Dell; and Donks needs to learn what a real web browser is :P haha nah each to their own, at least you can view 99% of webpages as they were meant to be viewed. Microsoft and Outlook web access aren't too Firefox friendly :(

I found you could check out the local cinema near you, to tell when the shots were taken, The films of the time will all be plastered across the front!

Also look at the fuel prices at servos, $1.30 so cheap #-o

Hehe - I love the quote at the bottom of page 2 of that story:

Elizabeth Maher, had a more positive experience: "While others may have legitimate complaints about Google publishing pictures of their house, I was delighted to views ours, with me pictured hard at work in the garden, complete with broom and bucket, thereby dispelling any uncertainty as to who is the gardener in the family."

I honestly don't know what people are getting all up in arms about with regards to Street View. Particularly the person at the centre of the above story. It's ridiculous that people are having a whinge over "privacy" concerns where in fact they actually don't have any privacy in the first place ;)

I can't see anything on Streetview that I can't see driving down the road in an actual car.

Speaking of Streetview, check this article out. You can work out what the article is about from the URL.
