I moved over a year ago.   My new location has been on the wxqa page since that time...  I went on tonight, and the map showed me back at my old house, just loaded again to double check, and now its showing my new house.....   Strange

I got an email about tonight's upadate:

All,

Tonight, due to a problem, an old version of the CWOP station file got loaded. This resulted in lots of stations apparently moving. I fixed the problem within an hour or so, but another part of the system generated emails telling people about these moves. Please ignore these if you get them.

Sorry

Philip


Maybe that's what is going on.

Thanks Slow Modem.   Well that is good to know.  I started doubting myself when all of a sudden in mid reply to the email the map showed me back at my current house.   "did I really see that????"  I guess he fixed it, just between my page loads....

Andrew,

I think it might have been a small rift in the time-space continuum.   :shock:
