Maps Disabled was created by larryf
I had to disable the Google maps. Google recently implemented a new pay schedule to access Google maps. Within less than a week, I had a bill of over $600 for using Google maps. Too rich for a free website, so the maps have been disabled until I can figure something out, or find another map alternative. :(

Maps are back up, slightly modified. You now need to specifically load the map, if needed. This is saving loading the maps unnecessarily, which is saving $$. I'm monitoring the map charges daily to keep them reasonable. If the charges start to get high again, I'll need to temporarily disable the maps again.

We are working on creating a programming interface to use "OpenMaps" rather than Google maps. OpenMaps are free to use.
