He used to come around for a few days, and than disappear again for a week or two, but he hasn't been around for a while now.

I've done that. Those meatballs are tasty.

Is that a bad sign?

Ikea has a grocery store inside, where you can buy very good vodka at a good price. Some people at a party were surprised when I told them that I've bought the booze in Ikea

I've been getting some interesting comments on my YouTube videos of highways around here from a user called MotAdvNSW. I find them quite amusing, mostly because I agree with a lot of what he says:

b) U-Turn bays, dedicated to 'emergency services only', need GATELOCK barrier to stop Mr & Mrs Australia doing illegal and stupid U-Turns. (Trialling on F3).

c) Needs continuous length median barrier to stop traffic looming out from scrub/grass from opposite carriageway.

TRAFFIC, on long lengths of three-lane section; the practice of "Keep middle unless passing" needs long term attention.

Indicators - optional only.

IKEA should do an offer: If you spend more than €500 in the shop you get 50 free meatballs.

Has anybody noticed that Google didn't update Greece to include the new completed Egnatia Odos motorway?

Google Earth is slow with a lot of roads in south/eastern Europe... It depends on their mapping service: Teleatlas

some things I recently noticed;

A1 Maribor, Slovenia
A4 Slovenia
A5 Slovenia
A2 Radovljica, Slovenia
A1 + A2 Romania
E75 in Serbia as a motorway north of Novi Sad (it is a single carriageway)
Beograd bypass as a motorway (it is a single carriageway)
A4 Poland
A5 Osijek, Croatia
A27 Greece

Google recently added new images of Bratislava too. Now you can see all Bratislava motorways in operation. At previous photos some of them were still U/C. You can see also upgrade works on D1 before Bratislava and U/C sections under High Tatras and west of Prešov, but only at certain zoom levels: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&hq=&...17294&t=k&z=11
