The Census Bureau's tiger map pages are currently down (and have been for most of the holidays). Until they come back up, I can't create any new US zoom maps. Sorry 'bout that!

Done! Some of the argument against a newsgroup seems to be that there isn't enough traffic ON USENET to support a new newsgroup. I myself have never posted on sci.geo.satellite-nav because I considered geocaching off-topic for that newsgroup. I suppose we could take our discussions over to that venue for a while to show them how much traffic there is... *wink*
