Then Google "shifted" the world about 70m or so (at least in the Playa area) and all the tiles then needed regeneration!

It was a LOT of work. More than I could do, so I got some help, which was also problematic. Then my javascript coding partner went to live in a monastery, and we re-evaluated the direction of development. Then the map companies started to support Playa.

We then decided to support some more off-the-shelf tools (read: more professional than what I was making!) which we have up and running on our development server. It's a much better system with a dedicated development team, and it fits within a new open source, off-the-shelf content management system to replace the custom one we are currently using (which I wrote in '04 ! )

As far as contacting us "with a couple of addresses we gave..." don't know what that means. Just use the "contact us" link near the bottom of each page. The emails go to me. As a merchant, join the New Merchant user group here: http://www.playa.info/playa-del-carm...editusergroups

I'll give you access to the merchant forum.
