If you’ve tried to get to this website over the past few days, you’ve probably experienced some difficulty. I was going to blame my hosting company, but the fault lies elsewhere.
On the right side of each page of geofffox.com is a plethora of weather data. I can’t imagine anyone really uses it, and I should remove it to reduce clutter and load times. Tonight, it bit me on the ass.
A line of php code plucks a list of extreme weather across the country and places it in that column. The list is actually produced on my friend Bob’s site, www.coolwx.com. His site, or maybe just this file, is unavailable, so my site sat and patiently waited for this little file… and waited… and waited some more.
This evening, using the free WiFi at Las Vegas McCarren Airport, I edited the code on my site to remove the link. Everything’s OK now.
