a rather daft and not very nice comment about a member who posted a good deal of useful info into the site, re volcanoes and also the weather in Shetland. give him my regards please?

was getting a hard time off people with his volcano thread. wasn't appreciated enough for the hard work he put into the forum.

Not the best place to add this i know paul, but i would just like to say i think this new thread in the model area is going to be great and help those who want to know what's going on fast 9if like me

    Isn't it bad luck to take down the Christmas decorations before 12th night (ie January 5), Paul? :shok:

    Seriously, the site has been running very slowly for me over the last two or three days. It seems to take ages to load pages. I have never had that before, and do not have problems with any other sites. Is NW becoming a victim of its own popularity?

    Haven't seen any problems on the server at all to be honest - and no one else is reporting speed issues. There may be a routing problem from your isp to our server - have you tried re-booting your modem?

    I am having trouble accessing any links to images and files in the learning centre, so far I have been trying to follow John Holmes variuos instructional posts but each time I click a link it says I do not have permission to view the file and need to log in, needless to say, I am logged in!

    So, have I missed something or is there broken links, or some other problem?

    Cheers! :shok:

    Hi Paul, HNY

    I have a query about the settings on 'my' home page.

    If I set up 'my' local reports to the 4 closest airports, and then go to set 'my' quick forecast, I didn't seem to get put onto a 'setup' page, rather to the 7-day forecast page. It did however seem to set that on 'my' home page though.

    The strange thing is if I go to the 7-day forecasts page to look at other places if I'm planning a trip or seeing what other places are going to get, each forecast obtained upsets that saved on 'my homepage' quick forecast.

    any ideas ?

    Hi Verglas, that's working as intended at the moment. Whenever you change the location of the forecast it will remember it and display it both on the homepage and when you go to the forecasts themselves. :unknw:

    Lol funnily enough it was the NOAA - just spoke to them and they did something slightly differently with the 12z files on their server, which made things go a bit wrong! Should be fixed for the 18z though.

    It's ok, the list of names has been removed to help the server when the site is busier. I'm sure Paul can explain in more technical detail, but it's nothing to worry about :) .

    Lol no, it's just to save a bit on the server - we've been having huge amounts of traffic on the site over the past couple of days, so we've taken those features off for now. We also did it last year during busy times.

    Will post an announcement about this when it's confirmed but it's very likely there will be upto 30 mins of downtime during tomorrow or at the weekend (probably overnight hopefully) as we're likely to be upgrading the processor in this server.

    Hi Paul / anyone alse who knows.

    How come I can not see the number of / names of users at the bottom of the forum pages? This seems to coincide with the forum getting busier!

    Thanks

    Dave
