The Google Maps API

When I tried to create a new post here in Blogger and I got the error message:
The Google Maps API server rejected your request. the "sensor" parameter specified in the request must be set to either "true" or "false".
I searched the internet, there are reports that this kind of error happened when people was trying to use Google maps in browser.
I don't remember I use any Google maps in my blog.

And in this post, people reported the same problem, and other issues:
when I go into the blog post, and attempt to set the locate for the post, using the Google Map API, it says:

"Couldn't find location, please try another query"

This same issue happens independent on browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox and IE.

Virgin Media Netgear Wireless Router Username and Password

As Virgin Media customer, if you find your wireless router is Netgear, then you may type the router's setup URL into a web browser address bar. http://192.168.0.1 is the default Netgear router IP address. http://192.168.1.1 will work for some Netgear models. Mine setup URL is http://192.168.1.1.

Then you are required to enter a username and password. If you haven't change the default setting, it is "virgin" and "password", you may find that on a label stuck on the router.

This default username and password of Virgin Wireless router is different from that of the normal Netgear router. The default username of Netgear is admin and the password is either password or 1234.

Then you open the configure interface, change the settings, such as change your DNS server to OpenDNS.

For a normal Netgear router, if you forget the username and password, you can reset and restore the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. But I couldn't find any button on my router…
