I've sent press releases to the major British media, but no response. There's just so much else going on. Going through your own local newspaper, radio and TV stations with your personal stories might have more chance of a response.

Thanks, wekebu.  I had heard the 3 minute distillation of that interview, but not the whole thing.  Nice addition to the OW/Zooniverse MP3 collection!  :)

Mentioned this before - number of hits when googling "oldweather.org".

Last week's figures are OCT 22/2940; 23/2950; 24/3750; 26/3660; 27/4,060, 28/4270, 29/5,500.

An obvious and apparent trend upwards, but wasn't checked at the same time each day, haven't analysed it and so don't know how significant it is. Might just be all the Forum comments!

I'd like to include an article on the Old Weather project in a newsletter which goes out to all UK university libraries. Could you let me know who to contact to discuss this?
Thanks.

Why not talk to Mr Weather himself, Dr Lintott.  If you send me an e/m at norriecb [at] gmail [dot] com, I can give you his e/m address.
