The next steps in improving this website are:
1: Improve the information provided to the average viewer.
2: Increase traffic; getting the number of viewers up to the point where advertisers would be interested will allow more low-level improvements.
Neither of these will be easy, but I'll keep working on it.
The website I had my site on - shut down without notice. I hate to mention names, but Earl Cahill was the guy who ran that server. Since then, I've had the site at another free webhost; they'd love me to post a link to their site, but I woudn't recommend it to anyone. But it seems to be stable; as long as you don't need to interact with customer service or trust their advertising claims, they're mostly OK. Here's where it's at now: http://manilaweather.webatu.com
The weather software is still - let's say it's less than perfect. The moderators here got after me for telling the truth, so I'm not sure what to do - should I warn others about the problems they'll have, or should I pretend everything is wonderful and full of fluffy ponies? I'd prefer to tell the truth.
After not having any option for contacting support for so long, now they've got a support page - with a form that will never load. No updates; they've cashed your check, what more do you want from them? I keep getting warnings about "icon1.jpg" that doesn't exist and never will - and the rainfall that is displayed is completely screwed up. Trying to keep VWS up - along with VWSAPRS (which is another bugfest) is becoming a full-time job.
I don't care about how much some vendor supports this site - if they're shipping defective products, people need to know. VWS has some serious problems, and after a year they've done nothing to correct them. They wouldn't respond to support requests, and now they won't even accept support requests. This isn't acceptable, it's fraud. Selling something that you promise will do all the described functions, then providing something that is somewhat less; that's fraud, and it's not acceptable. If the moderators want to support this fraud, then they're welcome to do so.
