What's New

2012

Late December. I've actually done some work on the site...well, just updating a few broken links, more to follow hopefully...

2006

Late December, problems with wireless reception. 'ISS' got knocked during a repair, reception being pushed by distance between ISS and station so transmitter/reciever probably very sensitive to conditions at extreme of range. Reception graph added to 'more graphs'.

August 20th. Software stop uploading historic graphs. Takes me a day to figure out that two vital files are damaged and two days to pluck up the courage to replace them (I think they're not written to, or at least not totally database specific).


July. Add more past data. Update seasonal pages (finally...), add some pictures (others lost in the move) tweak menu page.

2005

November 19th. Start move of site to this address.

October 15th. Update current weather page.

August 14th. ISS data transmission becomes erratic. The printed circuit board is sent for repair in the 18th and a new (replaced under warranty) upgaded board plus protective box returned on the 25th. The temperature sensor on this new board seems to read perhaps a little higher than the old one. did

August 4th. Update current weather page.

July 30th, ISS battery fails, replaced ...

July 27th. Replace main console battery - ISS battery reported by software as 'OK'.

July 13th. Update current weather page, some tweaks to the links page.

June 11th. Update current weather page, some tweaks to the links page.

2004

3rd December. Update current season page, new home page picture.

3rd November. Update current season page.

29th October. New front page picture and problems with uploads. It seems that the 'WeatherLink' program can still work while the ftp part is partly 'hung' and not uploading certain data - a re-start sorts it :). High windspeed graph has been changed from 7 to 3 days since the 7 day graph now only shows daily highs?

8th October. Update current season page

13 September. Update current season page (main PC damaged on 23rd August, and weather database corrupted, problems not solved until early September)

5 August - Updated current season pages, further repairs to data files.

July - Site updates, and backups, affected by malicious code on home PC. Lesson learnt...

22nd June - add 'rain rate' graph to more graphs page.

Late April - replace 'wind chill' graph with 'high wind speed' graph on more graphs page. Small modifications to menu. Replace homepage picture.

April 18th - updated links page. New links added to the menu. 'What's new' page added. Permian page updated.

April 2nd - update current season page.


2003

May - major colour scheme change, some pages retain the old scheme for reasons of practicality
