Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend Me Your Graphics Cards

As if Street View for Rome wasn't enough, now the Google Earth team has rolled out an ancient Rome layer:

I've often said that I wished I could redo college with Google Search, but I'd like to amend that to include Google Earth as well. Please? It's like flying through the model of Ancient Rome during the time of Constantine that I made the pilgrimage out to the Museo della Civilta Romana in EUR to visit.

Anyway, get ready to time travel, but you'll need a pretty hefty system ("Dual-Core 2.0Ghz CPU + 3GB RAM + High End GPU with 512 MB RAM Suggested") to get there.

P4 3.0 GHz, 2 GB mem. Ubuntu 8.04 runs the ancient Rome layer without issue.
