It depends on keyboard (setting) though. When I do not have the right accent (like Polish ones), I usually look it up @ Wikipedia.

Well, let me brag a little: I have the coolest keyboard driver that is available
http://www.aries.com.pl/grzegorzj/ke...ty/opisxp.html

It works like a standard Polish driver but in addition pressing Alt+Number gets you various accents. For example I have the diaeresis under Alt+7, so in order to get an '' I just have to press Alt+7 and then u key.

Yes, I know I have mentioned this.

btw, I have just realised what I said this morning - mental except of menthol

EDIT:

I just found interesting picture. In NL thhere are many bridges likes this one but I think it is quite odd anyway, even for Slovakia.

So there is one canal under bridge with another canal and there is a road bridge over the upper canal

Well, Germany, Cezch and Slovak republic. I haven't heard about any another country.

and in Cezch rep. there is done just a bit around Prague, a bit of motorways and Brno.. In Germany there are also just a few bigger cities with street view.

There is also Slovak street view on http://www.norc.sk/street-view/ created by Romanian company in towns - Bansk-Bystrica | Bratislava | Košice | Nitra | Trnava | Žilina. You can find norc street view in countries - Austria | Czech Republic | Poland | Romania | Russia | Slovakia | Hungary

Estonia is also being "Streetviewed" at the moment but I doubt they manage to finish photographing this year due to the short winter days around here. I actually saw a Google Street View car myself 2 weeks ago on the E263 highway.

I saw a Google Street View Opel Astra in my town in Romania about a year and a half ago, but that's all. I haven't seen the images on Google Earth or Maps.

Driving a google streetview car seems like such an easy, relaxing and fun job. I have greater ambitions myself though.

Finally NFS with some quite realistic roads. Although with (again) too wide lanes. NFS 1 (1994) had for me the most realistic road appearance.

Criterion said they made the map twice the size of Paradise city in Burnout, that's the largest map ever made for NFS.

I'm planning to buy TDU 2 too, but for PC. I played a lot whit the TDU1, it was really great to cruise with friends. One of the best things is the quite huge map. (1600km+) And TDU 2 will be on Ibiza + the old island will be included as well.
