Happy birthday Old Weather!



We launched one year ago today and here we are, still going strong, with the prospect of a whole new set of log books to entertain us.
We have had fun, haven't we?

Looking forward to another year with all you lovely people.  ;D

Well done all.

Steam in all boilers. Hands employed (typing) as required. Exercised action stations for OW2.

It's waiting for you at the quayside.
No chance of going stale before you dock.  ;)

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, EVERYONE!  (We really need the party hat/noisemaker emoticon from Skype for this.) 

Hard to believe a year has already gone by.  And here we are, over 3,000,000 weather entries, 90% of the initial part of the project completed, and we have a great forum group where everyone answers questions and solves problems together.  I love this.  Here's to the second year.

Thursday Next

Hey Caro - is that the Mantua in the picture?

Edit: well, now I've saved a copy of the file, I know the answer's yes!
