Tarry for the Nonce

Okay! Okay! I Give Up!

Despite my best efforts to continue using my preferred interface of Yahoo! Maps, the server has been busy the last few times I have tried to retrieve directions, which is supremely annoying.

I am thereby renouncing Yahoo! Maps and turning my loyalties to Google Maps.

I too am assimilated.



  1. wow, I just use mapquest…holy cow, I must be behind the times. Of course, google maps does have the satelite photos…so that’s a plus. Did you know google has a free sms service? Text to 46645 with the word ‘Help’ and it will return some of the keywords you can use.

    Its kind of handy…it provides driving directions, movie times, weather, stock info, etc. Very handy :o)

    And no, as much as I should have listened to wiser folks than I, I didn’t buy google stock when it came out…I just think its rather nice of them to provide this free service.

  2. Oh yeah, and Google’s got some neat little APIs as well… there’s even one for embedding maps via javascript…

    The only downside is that the search API is limited to 1000 queries a day…hrumph.
