Cloudfront asking for unlimited local storage: 11/13/2014 22:03:40

Recently, I started receiving requests by *gibberish*.cloudfront.net for unlimited local storage access every single time I open a map. This request has to be denied twice. What is the matter here?

I'm not entirely sure on this, but I think it has something to do with the hard disk storage option found in the 'Settings' tab.

The short answer is: If you enabled "Hard Disk Storage" on the settings tab, then you'll get this prompt. It's OK to say allow.

The technical explanation: In order to enable the https feature announced on the blog, I had to change the url that appears in this window. It used to say "cdn.warlight.net" but now it says "...cloudfront.net". CloudFront is an Amazon.com product that acts as WarLight's CDN.

Thanks, Fizzer! I thought it's some script attached to the ad provider, and I was concerned it's asking for unlimited storage. If it's Warlight, then I'll sure be glad to cut down on map loading times :).

I can understand the value of using a limited amount of additional local storage. Why is cloudfront.net asking for unlimited local storage? I would be comfortable allowing an external application access to perhaps 10 to 50 MB of storage but not unlimited.

WarLight will never use more than 30 megabytes. It even reports this to Flash, but for some reason Flash chooses to display "Unlimited" anytime the amount is over 10 megabytes. Which is pretty silly. I can't imagine why Adobe chose to do that. Maybe it's because Flash is such an old product, and back in the 1990s 10 megabytes was a lot so they thought nobody would ever use that much.
