You may or may not have heard of the Crispin-Buxley Phenomenon and if you have not then you are probably wondering what it actually is.
In all honesty, I do not know what it is myself. Simple really. However you have probably come across this article after doing a Google search because you had been asked the question 'Are you familiar with the Crispin-Buxley phenomenon?' on the paid-survey website Prolific and was wondering what on Earth it actually was.
I have sat down and thought about what this could be and all I can think of... [read more]
If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that I am heavily into my weather stuff and that I have running every six hours a few scripts that I have mashed together to generate visible weather maps for the temperature, wind speed, rain and pressure for the British Isles. Now when these maps have generated, they can be quite hefty. The last weigh-in I did for the maps was 73.2MB, which if you're wanting to quickly browse them and you're not on a 4G or decent WiFi connection end up loading quite slowly.

It was like the internet, but in our television sets and massively slower than 56k, but it had everything we needed to know. The news, weather, lottery numbers, star signs, flight arrival/departure times... yes, Teletext was the place to go to get that information. These days though Teletext and Ceefax are no longer used and it is quite sad that we no longer have to sit staring at a black screen with white text on it whilst waiting for the numbers at the top to cycle all the way through for a new page to...

The whole copyright debate is a mad one for the UK. One moment we can't make personal backup copies of our CDs and DVDs, then the next moment it becomes something we can do and then recently that has been once again changed. And it's not just the whole copying/ripping music that's involved - it also applies to computer backups.
The UK Intellectual Property Office ("IPO") has said "It is now unlawful to make private copies of copyright works you own, without permission from the copyright holder", so if you buy a... [read more]
If you're someone who knows me well enough, you'd know I have an interest with the weather (and to some extent other natural disasters too), so yesterday I got bored and usually when I get bored random ideas pop into my head, and one did so, of which I think would be of use to a majority of the online UK WX scene. Ok, so maybe not so at this time of year, but definitely during the year it may be quite handy.
The main reason this idea popped into my head, was because earlier this year when various storms were... [read more]

Heads up; I think Twitter may have made a change to the site which is affecting the downloader.
I put the name in, number it to 4000, choose a directory to put the files, and hit run; I now notice ...
