It's working fine at http://gosportwx.com/wxquake.php for me this morning using Firefox.  Maybe clearing your browser cache will help?

Tech Corner / Re: Can I downgrade a laptop from Win8.1 to Win7?

Interesting.  Chrome allows me to set Bing as my search engine that opens in new tabs but Opera will not (Opera only shows Google).  :-k

I don't know where you're getting that.
Opera gives you a long list of 'search' providers to choose from and use as a default on the "Settings" option page. Plus you can add on your own URL if you find one not on the list.
I use Bing or Duck as default. I will sometimes specifically go to "Google.com" for certain things, but never as a default.
Have you gone through the 'advanced' Settings options yet? There's lots of selectable stuff in there. Read the descriptions, and "help" if necessary.

Opera is/can be complicated, if you dig into it, because it does so much (lots of stuff I've never even looked at yet).
But you can simplify it. Like anything new (to 'you' or anyone), it takes a little getting used to.

The feature set is very extensive, it is extremely stable, it can be loaded down with dozens of 'windows' and many hundreds of tabs. And if you set the option, when you do a reboot or whatever, it all comes back just as you left it, including website page histories (fwd-bkwd).

I do that with SeaMonkey, the current iteration of what used to be Netscape and Mozilla Suite.

Yes, but does SeaMonkey have a built in, one click, very effective VPN (which hides your actual IP) and adblocker (almost never see an ad anywhere), plus many other very useful features?
Both of those features are complicated extra addons with other browsers. (note that the Opera VPN is only for Opera, it isn't in effect for other apps using your IP connection, like other browsers or email*, etc; as a full IP VPN would do.)
I don't even use many of its' features, but some might; just a matter of your own style and habits, in which Opera is flexible enough to accommodate almost everybody.

Firefox will retain webpage tabs and history too, but MS Edge retains tabs but not their history.
Opera is simply the all around best there is.

* Writing of "email", how many of y'all have an account (free or paid) with the absolutely secure, fully encrypted end-to-end Swiss email provider called "ProtonMail"? No ads, no 'analysis' of contents, no spying; nobody, not even ProtonMail, has access to your email content. (I was an invited beta tester from PM's early days)
Plus, I think it's neat to have my encrypted mailbox securely stored 1000 meters under a Swiss mountain. Not in a Google server farm accessible to thousands of ?.
Our modern 'surveillance state' governments worldwide hate it... so it's gotta be good.

Hi chrysnic,
I think I found your station on the weatherlink.com map.  I can't see anything wrong (except as you say no pressure showing) on your bulletin or weather data page.  Are you using Meteobridge, and could it be something in its uploads?

Also something funny when I click on your avatar website globe?!?  Maybe because I am signed in my weatherlink.com page on this computer.


Enjoy,
Paul

CPC and some of the other crystal ball types sites are hinting at a fairly significant warmup beginning towards the end of this week.  Are your local NWS sites taking that trend?

No mention of Peetís, RainBird, etc. :-(

Hmmm....

Just installed the Opera browser.  So far I'm looking at it negatively.  Upon installation it took it upon itself to set it as my default browser without giving me the option.  Not good, I don't like "push" tactics.

Second negative item...  When I open a new tab the little bookmark squares are there but also a long narrow Google search engine window.  I've selected Bing to be my default search engine and searching from the URL/address bar results in a Bing search.  I hope that I'm missing something here, certainly Bing isn't in Google's pocket, too.  #-o

I'm not liking it with the Google search bar there.  I can get over Opera setting itself up as the default browser without asking me first, but having a Google search bar in a new tab's window just isn't going to work.  My intent this morning is to distance myself from Chrome and Google...and any other Google-related "thing".  I know Google is a thieving company, I've put up with it for several years, but I'm over it, finished,...I'm done.   So, how do I replace that Google search bar that shows up in a newly opened tab with some other search bar?

WeatherUnderground / Re: WU - Let us know your issues
« Last post by PaulMy on Today at 09:44:35 AM »
Hi Greg,I am sure it is annoying for you to see that again.
Since it had been working for a time yesterday and if nothing has changed I'd think it is a WU issue.
However, mine is still working so likely not a wide-spread WU issue. 


Enjoy,
Paul

I only have Basic. Unfortunately, mine is still not showing the barometer readings. Really strange.
