First of all, apologies to users for our delays with Maps of the Week. We're doing a large remodeling project here. Two weeks ago, the people doing the work unintentionally cut us off from our LTE antenna that we use for high-speed Internet connections. As a result, our Internet access had been limited to a telephone line connection at 384 KBps, which is useless for uploading maps many megabytes in size. The antenna connection is repaired now, but then we began an overhaul of our website on server level that unexpectedly and erroneously closed our FTP upload channel for about a week. For the time being, it's business as usual again. However, in the next two weeks, we'll be switching to a new, high-powered network server and upgrading our network to power line service instead of Ethernet and WLAN connections, so further delays are possible until mid-June.
The 305th Map of the Week is from the forthcoming Jörðgarð Trails adventure "In the Salt Mine." It shows a cross-section of the salt mine.
