Topic Review (Newest First)

allene222 I had a request to add data from the NBDC Ships and Drifting Buoy data and have posted a link in the page sub title to a test version. The new data is incorporated into the Data Station Section but can include observations for up to 24 hours.

I have also declared the page released (version 1.0) as I have seen no bugs lately.

I will be working on a "weekend mode" soon that will change the tide data to show the tides for the upcoming weekend. You can still see tide data for specific dates using the printer page. I welcome feedback on what this new mode should include.

Please send a message to me through the comments tab if there are any issues or suggestions for improvement.

sealover Works now. Simple, fast, and clean. No popup junk mail or intrusive ads. Thank you!

I noticed all my sites were down for a few minutes around an hour and half ago. I will contact 1and1.com and try and find out what happened.

I have seem some glitches in the past but hitting refresh usually clears it. This was different.

Once again, great project. I am also an open-source software developer so I appreciate the spirit and time you put into this.
I can make the change to the tide edit page but need to work out some details like how to show the user what the date is. I also need to think if this should be sticky or session only. I am thinking session only. For now I put a note in the edit page directing people to the printer page.

I want to hear more about the tide date request. Not sure what to do there but I am open to the idea.

The Printer Page has a feature to change the date on the tide plots btw. Pehaps that is what you wanted.

BubbleheadMd I agree, thank you for this valuable contribution. It has a very "one-stop shop" feel to it. It has pretty much everything. I was going to ask for the zoom feature as well, but you've already added it!

Thumbs up!

Flybyknight Now that is what I call a substantial contribution.
Sincere thanks,

Great great work nonetheless.
