In a few minutes I will be rearranging the rats nest that is my basement where all the goodies that make this website tick reside.

It’s going to take me an hour or so to get everything ripped apart and put back together, so please forgive the downtime.

Weather Data, graphs, and Webcam will all be “frozen” in time. The Satellite, Radar and other outside links will continue to work.

I will update again when the system is back online.

Cheers!

Chris

UPDATE:

Hooray, I can walk in my basement again… and… I’ve installed a Serial to Ethernet Adapter… it’s a sweet little box that allows me to plug the weather station in directly to the network without the need for a dedicated computer. Geeks like me like that sort of thing. 😀
