That's nuthin'. Head to mapquest.com and click on "maps". ( http://www.mapquest.com/cgi-bin/ia_find?link=btwn/twn-map_form&event=no_map ). Then plug in your address (not sure if it'll work outside the US) and then click on "Aerial Photo". Yep, that's right, they have satellite pictures of your house!

the thing was that we were on irc in the livechat and i used his ip to find his latitude/longitude. Mapblast lets you use latitude/longitude. Mapquest doesn't. I also use terraserver.com. You can use lat/long to get a photo.

Oh cool, didn't know that. There's also VisualRoute (http://visualroute.visualware.com/) for geographical IP look-ups as well.
EDIT: Darn, the link to the aerial image of my house won't work. Oh well.
