Thank you, and as I speak, I am using your wonderful program along with 
Google-Earth, and it is terrific.

What I was speaking of with Andy's server, was that I was using his 
service and left it running for several hours. Was hopeing that I wasn't 
one of the "gooses" Andy mentioned, Hi Hi..

With your script, it sits here running flawlessly, except, everyone it 
plots is in their cars!! :-) I wonder if you will parse the Icon data 
out of the lat/lon one day? No worry now, what I got I like!! You guys 
are great... We are having a lot of fun...
