Has Google Been Shitting Itself Lately?
I just used that search box over on the right to look for references to RaLink wireless adapters here. Nothing came up. Then I did your standard Google-Fu against the site and got 13 hits, going back to 2007.
I have also been having issues with Google Maps since early April, the latest being the inability to save street intersections to the M/S 2011 Map. Any plain old street number will work, but it hangs on intersections. I've tested it with every browser I run (and I run a lot of different browsers) with the same result. I can work around that, so it's not a big deal.
But it is annoying.
Another annoying Maps issue is the display during editing. If you move a marker from page 2 to page 1, the markers are all over the place. Luckily it only happens during editing.
And then there's Google Update. I kept getting an "Update server not available" error, so I finally re-installed it.
The last time I bitched about Google, my machine died a horrible death (long story, lots of blog fodder there), so I'm somewhat hestitant to put the blame elsewhere.
If you've had any issues, drop me a line.
