Posted by jpluimers on 2019/08/29

When +Google Nederland maps only fills one or part of the map tiles…

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/18

I still have to do this every few weeks on all my desktop machines: [WayBack] When +Google Nederland maps only fills none or part of the map tiles… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+

When +Google Nederland maps only fills none or part of the map tiles at https://maps.google.nl, but https://maps.google.com works fine, then remove any gsScrollPos cookies from www.google.nl.

I need to do this every couple of days to keep maps.google.nl working.

Later I also found it can happen for YouTube, then did more digging for gsScrollPos and found a better workaround: [WayBackAwesome Cookie Manager where you can just delete the gsScrollPos cookies from all sites in one go.

Even later I found out that this can be one of the causes for the WayBack machine giving an error 400 when archiving. A more common reason however is that many archived web-pages try to create cookies in the web.archive.com subdomain resulting in the same problem.

The cause seems to be the Great Suspender plugin which should be fixed by now, but might not automatically update to the latest version. See:

Pending a new Great Suspender release, below is a quick way to manually remove them if you are into SQL scripting for sqlite. It basically comes down to executing the below statement when Chrome is closed:

delete from cookies where name like 'gsScrollPos-%'

Local Guides Connect – Help Desk – Local Guides Connect

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/01

Reminder to self: Local Guides Nederland moved their [WayBack] G+ community over to [WayBackLocal Guides Connect – Help Desk – Local Guides Connect which is part of [WayBack] Local Guides Connect and powered by [WayBack] Powered by Lithium | Lithium.

Since that is not part of any other social media platform I subscribe to, I will likely only see new stuff when I actively go to that place: hopefully that is more than once a year.
