the iso-monster was in reference to your monstrous amount of posts and in no way was ment as derogatory, but read from it as you will.

I'll take your word for it and retract the "jerk".
But considering the volume of $#!+ I get from the nine-year-olds here, my misinterpretation is understandable.

The new color scheme seems counter intuitive to me. Lighter to darker (or duller to brighter) would seem to indicate increasing wind. The current spectrum gets darkest at 26 then decreases. Guess we could do without the colors and just show the numbers.

Sorry johnl and isobars. You must have missed it when we DID have a forecast for over 30 about two weeks ago. Hopefully you were on the water instead of staring at my forecast tables.
green and aqua green! So, there's two sides to every coin.


Wow, A bit harsh if you indeed are part of management far from me to defend the over iso-monster but a few others have disagreed with the color scheme maybe include them with your new found color scheme rant. we can't all be be from the windless midwest.


I actually didn't take it as harsh, and saw the "tongue in cheek" humor. But I somewhat dissagree with the color. If it's blowing less than 15, you can color it anyway you want, but unless you like big sails or kiting, you aren't going out....

Funny, I didn't see it that way but irony and sarcasms often don't usually translate well written. This is surprising cause that's 99% of my posts have that undertone, or at least I think they do.

To iWindsurf management: I read the forecasts on a phone (in HTML mode). In case you haven't noticed the world is going mobile and your app needs to work on multiple devices. It used to work on my phone, but now I cannot tell whether to take a nap or pack the car.
Thanks for listening...

I have no trouble accessing or reading the numbers on my phone, using iWap.
