Hmmm.. that's a good point..

I use this link (maps.google.com/maps/tldata?la ...) when building the contents of my SV site as the canonical source for the list of supported cities – I see Fort Worth and St. Paul are no longer listed as being separate.

Above 4 comments were made in the forum before this was blogged,

It's your home router. Upgrade its firmware, or disable its firewall. I think Maps/Picasa will start working again for you.

[put at-character here]Hebbet : you're right, it is helpful because you can zoom out more now, and see the areas covered by Google's cars.

Chicago-Milwaukee bay and Salt Lake City seem to be the two largest areas covered by Google

Anyone else notice that the "View Larger Map" link on the Salk Lake Street View at the blog entry mentioned above (google-latlong.blogspot.com/20 ...) is broken because the lat/long is bad in the URL? That's generated automatically and not by the author of that blog post. Bug? The correct link is like this: maps.google.com/maps?ie=utf8&a ...

Wierd, a long stretch of road in Juneau that was filmed at night:

Maybe they forgot to turn off the camera...
