For every one relatively new:

OW# is the chronological progression/growth of Old Weather interfaces, OW1 being first launched in October 2010, when NOBODY knew what they were doing - yet.

OW-phases 1 and 2 were our Royal Navy voyages, 2 being a massive software rewrite of 1.  All nicely completed and in databases, comments in Naval-History.Net.

OW-phase 3 is our good old OW Classic, and while anything that might be useful and that interests you can be made an event, the events do not ever go into the climate change databases.  While Philip may well read your forum post about ocean swells, the analysts sorting out the database info will likely never see any of that.

OW-phase 4 is OW:Whaling - its own very unique set ships and utterly lacking codes, needing different handling.

OW-phase 5 is the new OldWeather.org - and it does collect State of the Sea for climate databases.  But it is still pulling climate database material from the tabulated coded infor, so we need to get from Philip and Kevin here what they permanently want to do with ocean swells.  For now, I'd play safe-rather-than-sorry and record anything that looks interesting.

The world's navies and merchant fleets do not seem to run out of ships to transcribe.  ;)

The advantage to living in a large apartment building is, if any tracker gives my address a false positive, the seekers will have 10s of households to choose from.

How horrible to have to live with that.

This is a very good thing, needs to decrease more.

Fully stock your pantries, East Coast.  Please stay safe.  And hopefully powered with internet.

I guess for us W7 users the main concern is the time limit on the free upgrade to W10. I think that's in July, isn't it?

My unsupported XP machine is still happily chugging away doing BOINC tasks. My free virus checker never finds any viruses either.

I have it on my appointment calendar - This month last chance to upgrade for free ? paying starts July 29th 2016 is posted on July 1st.

Right on the money, Hatterjack.  The worst thing we can do - to ourselves and Earth - is to stop trying and just go on adding more insult to injury.

Backing this article up, NASA published notice of this article on Facebook today.  Clearly lots of people want this yearly data published quickly.
