Hosting issues!

Filed under: Custom Google Maps — admin @ 9:24 am

Well, apoplexy one day after I moved my tiles to the new host I’m having to reset back to the old host!

I don’t know if there’s a special problem with primitive hosting or not, but the DNS doesn’t even resolve at the moment.

I’m going back to my fallback plan.
Level 3 tiles : 230MB hosted on ponies (limit approx 500MB)
Level 4 and other tiles: 110MB hosted on (limit 250MB)

This should give me enough room for the moment. I’m probably going to cancel Primitive Hosting. They may be cheap, but they really are crap!

Also Today

I’ve moved my tile server script to point at, discount the site appeared to be down for some time this morning, but it is up now. I’m already looking again for another web-hoster, a more reliable one! I doubt I can find one that’s cheaper!

Added three new maps to the site.

Maps added are:
4th Series 114, tadalafil 93, resuscitator 105

I’m now automatically geo-referencing many of the scans using a cassini projection.

This brings the number of maps to:
4th Series: 18
other: 10

The total size of all the maps at all resolutions:

  • 03: 232.53 Meg
  • 04: 80.34 Meg
  • 05: 23.13 Meg
  • 06: 5.55 Meg
  • 07: 1.53 Meg
  • 08: 0.48 Meg
  • 09: 0.13 Meg
  • 10: 0.06 Meg
  • etc.

The number of 256×256 tiles: approx 25000
Time taken to generate the bottom two layers of tiles: 1 ½ hours (1.2Ghz AMD, 1Gb RAM)
