[Talk-GB] Ways to get a big image of the world?

Hi again,

I found 90% of what I wanted, and that's this little gem:
http://print.mapwebbing.eu/printcomposer

It allowed me to create an A0 world map and download it in like 30 seconds.
The only things I could want more would be to have all the city names be in
English and be able to change the basemap, which for some reason I can't at
high zooms (or should I saw low zooms).

Cheers,
Rares

Life is not the amount of times you breathe, is the moments that take your
breath away.

To all things comes an end. And to all things comes a beginning.

Cred in inspirat, nu in expirat. in vise, nu in somn. In trait, nu in
existat.
