Lambertus started building a new map, but it had a ton of missing tiles
and it looks like he reverted back to the December set.  I'm going to do
the same.

I've also made a change to my scripts.  They'll now no longer build the
maps or send out emails unless they fully complete a new download of a
Lambertus set.  I originally tried to make them a bit tolerant of
missing a tile or two (which was common).  That is not as common now,
but missing half of the data set for a time is.
