Archives for June 2017 | Leavening Weather Station Blog


I finally moved the Weather Forecast page over from a lazy iFrame inclusion to a real php page. It’s MILES better. Should have done this ages ago because the page length has never been correct due to the fixed size of the frame. Added a search box to all pages.

Also, I was wondering why my Forecast Accuracy Report on Temperature (FART) script was indicating that the poor old Norwegian Weather Service (YRNO) were so useless at forecasting the temperatures for Malton … on closer inspection it appears that the script was using some place in Italy for the report Winking This happened because I reinstalled everything recently (see below) and a default file slipped through the net.

Carmignano in Tuscany to be precise. Very nice but not quite the same weather as good old North Yorkshire. Now updated to the correct location so it will populate itself (as much colder!) correctly over the next few days/weeks.

I updated a lot of other pages and the colour scheme this week too. All in all I think its looking petty good now. Fingers crossed.

Nice weather this week so I took a new set of page header images whilst out walking the dog - enjoy!

If you want something added or have other suggestions feel free to let me know post in the guestbook.

Final thought, saw this, made me laugh …

8th June - Change of Plan

So, I spent about 50 hours updating the whole website to a nice new, modern, html5 style with up-to-date modern code and then find it looks terrible on anything other than a PC/Mac.

On my phone I’ve got bits missing, stuff outside of tables and it generally looks horrible. Not much better on a tablet either.

I’ve been thinking, for a few days, that maybe I should revert to the old website and therefore waste about 100 hours of my life in total #OMG

Time for a compromise. I’ve changed the style back to look like something similar to the original site but kept all the work I’d done on speeding up and tidying the code. I think we now have the best of both worlds.

It looks nice on any device plus you can see everything on a phone - especially of you turn it round.

A bit of a nightmare. Hope you enjoy it Winking
