The problem is that you appear to have a directory called index.htm in the root of your web space, so this is preventing the Cumulus index.htm page from being displayed.

You could spend hours playing with the website, well this is my latest handy work http://www.weather.carnebeach.com We had our first rain yesterday and it worked fine but I will be building a new rain gauge like you pointed out earlier in 2 weeks. I have been reading on Solar Radiation but I am still not sure if I need to buy something to get this to work
Oh whats the standard Donation?
Oh here is what I have been at for the past 2 years with great success thank god http://www.ldndatabase.com/ourstory.html

What a very heartwarming story :) But what tremendous worry you both must have gone through. To get control of such advanced cancer is terrific :) Well done! But how is your wife feeling? I know that many cancer treatments are extremely unpleasant and severely reduce the quality of life. I think we all know people who have cancer and/or died from it. Several of my friends have it, some in remission, some have died. My aunt died of it, a cousin died from it and another is in long term remission. I feel lucky that it doesn't seem to have come down my mother's side of the family.

My very best wishes to you both for the future :)
Gina

Sorry, no banner - weather station out of action. Hoping to be up and running with a new home-made one soon.

Thanks Gina
I dont want to upset the moderators by posting here and if you want to ask any questions please just email me. I am a member of so many cancer groups where I learn about alternative treatments and help new people to learn but the biggest part of our fight is a tiny tablet that costs 1 euro a day and is available all over the world for the past 20 odd years. I have never addressed a group of people in my life and on Saturday I am going to Birmingham to discuss my wife's story to 200 people at a conference.
My wifes quality of life is great, not quite what it was 2 years ago as she spends a little more time in bed than she used to. She is now going mad at me because she has put on so much weight "women" LOL she was a size 12 and now a size 16, we are now trying to address that. I have met all sorts on the net over the past 2 years, made some great friends and have doctors from around the world ringing me to see how my wife is doing, I even met one guy who wanted to charge me 400USD for telling me the name of a website, fat chance,
If you know people with cancer or in remission, tell them about Low Dose Naltrexone http://www.ldninfo.org. I dont sell or have anything to do with any drug company I am just like any of you but just went through a roller coaster ride with my wife for 2 years
my email john at carnebeach.com
Thanks again
now back to the weather before I get barred

You make us sound like ogres! ;)

All we try to do is keep on topic while in a discussion; there is a 'general' area for anything which might interest people but has little or nothing to do with the weather -- a bit of general chat is certainly not discouraged!

PS -- Amazing story John

LOL :lol: I didnt mean to offend. Last year I was in a competition here in Ireland and to drum up votes a few of us went around forums asking for support. I ended up with the nick name John Banned Donnelly. I came in first with the public vote but the judges decided against me http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/health/2010/0907/1224278340208.html

It's difficult, and a fine line between what people consider chat/information and 'spamming' when they feel bombarded.

Anyway, i'm off topic now -- I might need to have a word with myself!

Couldn't find that one on Amazon but this one's under 6 quid. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Botanico-Lets-Grow-Rain-Gauge/dp/B003WQA4L4/ref=pd_cp_lp_2
The one I've been using I got for 2 quid from a garden centre. But it's parallel sided with a small catchment area. I increased it with a funnel and re-calibrated. But I prefer a conical one.
