Thanks massiveknob! Work colleague had mentioned this site but I couldn't remember it - will be watching avidly! Only 4 mins to go!

He's taking a long time to check his list. Can't he take off and do it on the way?

Have you got google earth? If so, put in norad santa tracker in there.

MassiveKnobOfBrandyButter Fri 24-Dec-10 07:18:08

checking bicycles now !

IIRC he didn't actually leave the North Pole until about 8.15am last year. Not that that minor detail has stopped my DC waking me up to switch the computer on and start tracking him at 7am this year!

I can't get it to work on Google Earth - is it up and running yet ?

Everytime I press the track Santa on Google Earth button on the Norad website a message comes up saying there is a problem with the Google Earth plug in - try reloading the page or re installing the plug in using the link.

I've tried doing both, but still get the same message. I've also downloaded Google Earth straight from Google but can't seem to find Santa.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong ?

i think because santa has not taken off yet. I tried to find it a bit earlier. I thought last year he didn't take off til around 10 but another poster thinks it is around now.

Try checking in a bit. I will post if i see him in the air.

JemimaMop Fri 24-Dec-10 08:38:36

Obvioulsy I was wrong and he didn't take off at 8.15 last year blush

I wish he'd hurry up! He's got his coat on now at least.

Is he just chatting to Frosty now? You've had all year to talk to him, FC.

Checking the reindeer. Come on,come on!

highlighterpen Fri 24-Dec-10 08:46:31

Actually, have a bone to pick with FC. Along with DCs new pj's, he brought a pair of slippers in THE WRONG SIZE for DH.

I'm not sure mine is working. Does it actually move or does the image change iyswim?

SuchStuff Fri 24-Dec-10 08:58:36

The image changes when FC starts doing something new. The sleigh is connected to the reindeer at the mo.

SuchStuff Fri 24-Dec-10 08:59:07

I tell a lie, he's making his final preparations before heading off now. He's dragging it out a bit!

geisha Fri 24-Dec-10 09:01:26

Is it me or does his sleigh look empty? Typical man, can't remember everything!

geisha Fri 24-Dec-10 09:09:33

Ah, ok, loading his sleigh now. Should never have doubted the man!
