Default Bing Maps...street view

Saw one of the Bing cars on my street recently. Anyone know how long it takes for those images to go live? I did some searching on the internet but came up empty.

I already saw the pics. It looked like you were watering the yard in jorts and a wife beater t-shirt.

They came by my shop 4-6 weeks ago, and due to your post, I just looked........I'm there standing next to my truck.

Think I can get any "royalties"?

That would have been funny if they caught you playing with your wiener by the bushes!

Can you post a link to the map website? Not a link to your image, just the map website. Maybe I'm using the wrong one.

There's a toolbar above the map....click on the man standing in the circle after you've zoomed in, then move him to a spot, then click again..

Yeah that is what I am doing and from that website too. But I kept getting this message.

"We are unable to load the selected map app. Please try again later"

But I fixed the problem, I had to allow my browser to run Silverlight which I had blocked.

But what's strange is he got me while still home. When I saw him I was driving down my street so he should have got my truck driving on the street. Maybe they take lots of images and pick the better ones. I did virtually drive down the street on Bing and saw the spot where I saw him and I'm not there. And I know it was the same day because the lawn truck was there for the neighbor a few doors down.
