Hi Blank,

Unfortunately there are still a few bugs in the system regarding if the reporter doesn't update the daily report, the forecast graph and days don't roll over.

If you look at the forecast tab you'll see that Steve updated the forecast on Friday..

Hopefully this is fixed ASAP.

Cheers, Craig

Sometimes a forecast that apprently was updated at '2:36pm' won't show up until 5 hours later! What's up with that? Is there some whacky server side caching going on ?

it seems you have to have the very latest of your browser or things get cached weird. did the update to my firefox and all is good. mine was one behind the very latest version and it made everything out of whack on SN

Matt's working on this as I write so that no matter what browser, updated or not etc. the forecats shows when it's updated.

Thanks for your patience :)
