More Website Stuff

As little kids get growth spurts, so does this website. Every once in a while, I get the urge to add content.

I already wrote about the new ‘live’ watch and warnings links. They’ve worked really well – until I blew out all the Cron jobs on the server! Crons are clock based program triggers. Do something once a day, or every other minute and cron job is in action.

Yesterday, I discovered another really cool program. It was buried within the bowels of freshmeat, one of the geekiest destinations on the web. The program, Weather-Plotter, collects hourly weather information, then graphs and plots it. Very cool. Much better than the way I’m graphing data now.

I’ll throw out the link, but it’s not ready for primetime yet. Something like this needs weeks, maybe months of readings before the graphs start to flesh out. And, there’s still the task ahead of me to make it look like the rest of the site.

People often ask me how I have enough time to do this. I don’t. It will happen slowly.
