Oh.... Thanks for the report! I did check that page only a few days ago, so it must be very recently Google changed that. And I thought old Google Maps would work forever. But I guess I was wrong... I'll fix it during next week.

My own "old API key" freebies are still working. Who knows what Google is up to? Or did the jAlbum map page get a lot of traffic? Can't imagine that's the case.

No, it seems to be around 40 views monthly of that page. That won't bring down the Google Maps service.... :)

Your IP is mapped to the city "Goor" in our geo database. Maybe we got an old database.

Also Goor shows no activity. In fact shows whole East-North Netherlands no activity!

Btw what is an ?wicket:interface activity?

In the attached screendump you see that there was a launch in Meppel, but Meppel gets no Marker

The placing of the markers have some randomness added to them, so several events with the same coordinate don't end up on top of each other. (Some countries have so bad geodata that they all end up in the middle of the country.)

There is (more or less exactly) a one minute delay between the event and when it shows up, so you can test it.

The wicket-thingy is a flaw introduced when we made some changes to the download mechanism.
