May 1, 2016

About a year ago, Yahoo discontinued development and support for their web music player (which I have used on the audio pages for several years). I was able to keep it working for the next year.

A few weeks ago, a visitor notified me that the player wasn't showing up. After some research, I realized one or more files that the player needed were deleted by Yahoo. I was unable to fix it, so I looked for a replacement.

I wasn't able to find an acceptable one, so I decided to create my own. That player debuts today. Since it hasn't been used much, there may be a bug or two. If you have a problem using it, please contact me.

In an effort to make finding new content easier, I added a sorting option to the pages with content under video, images, and articles. You'll also be able to sort the local forecast videos by title, date added, and date recorded.

I also revamped the blog. I thought it made more sense to post site updates here. With the remaining posts, I thought calling them articles made more sense since they're added sporadically and updated every now and then.

Speaking of articles, I add some new ones. You can find them near the top of the list (unless you've sorted by title). They include timelines of each WeatherSTAR, as well as a list of former OCMs and their current status.
