The Corwin page

The cloud type column has the cloud cover data in it.
As we are to TWYS I thought I would mention it so as the editors can move the data across.

Luck I am still on that page.
When is the editing of entered pages facility coming on line?

Editing and fixing the Firefox new-box-at-the-bottom are on the top of Arfon's list.
You can't be more anxious than we are ;)
Believe me, the mods let the PTB know that we want that fixed NOW (and we already got a fix for the rogue boxes)!

None - it took me awhile

Weather code is b - Tenths clear sky is 10  ;D



Don't forget that Manning, with cloud cover, is the opposite of the rest of the ships.

Philip provided a loophole to the TWYS rule when he said that we could put in the full barometer reading occasionally after  long series where the first two digits were dropped. Well, I cunningly chose a point when the pressure dipped under 30.00 and the log keeper hadn't put in the 29.   I did! Go ahead and slap my wrist.  ;D

When we get editing facilities, will there an easy way to search for pages with little or no data?
I had a spell where I 'lost' a few page with out putting data on them?

My current method, given that ships in our retired fleet also have no date labels, is to open a page at random and note its date. 
Approximate how many days (months times 30) behind my desired date I am. 
Jump down the list that many hundreds of links and repeat the process.  Hopefully with smaller jumps each time. :)
