Hi Peter! No worries. I was cleaning up a bunch off accounts and if you delete the google account it automatically deletes Panoramio. They don't make it easy to get back as I have to go and resubmit the positions on google maps etc. What a traumatic experience. How did you find out I was off the site out of curiosity? Tim

Something is wrong as I used to get 10,000 plus a day but now sitting around 4,000. My totals are way off as well and I don't think they will be recovered but as long as I didn't lose all my work or it would have taken a year to do it again. Have a great weekend! Tim

Hi Glenn! I see that you have many comments and it is so much appreciated!! I have been busy this summer and not much time on the old computer so I see I have my work cut out to thank everyone! How's the weather in Conneticut? I see there was snow, tornado's and all kinds of freaky weather these past few weeks. I was in Minneapolis last week and the weather was colder than up here in Winnipeg. Take care and hope to see you again! Tim
