Thank you. I liked the way they did that too. That was one of the reporter's
first ideas when they decided to do the story.

I'm afraid that happens on more than half the occasions when I visit the map
at different zoom levels. I can rarely see the whole map properly. When I've
referred others to it they say the same thing - they give up because it
doesn't give them anything useful.
How about a different tile for 'server busy' from 'unmapped' ; and the cache
time out and no-cache for the bad tile is vital to improve this. Of course,
server load is an issue.
Wouldn't surprise me if it gets a lot of hits this evening after the item.
