October 29, 2020:  November 2 DDoS Attack ? 
    I received an
ransomware demand email stating that this site will be subjected to a DDoS attack starting on November 2 if I do not pay a "ransom" of $1150.  I have no intention of paying such since this site is of no financial value to me.  I suspect the extortion warning to be a bogus, but should you experience difficult accessing the site after that date, such is likely the reason. (Nov.5 update: The email was indeed a simple scam.  More info)
July 20, 2020:  NEW SERVER: 
    You are now using the new virtual Blipmap server.  The RAP and NAM BLIPMAP forecasts are working, as is the forum - but I have checked little else.  If you find something not working, please report it on the Blipmap Forum. and I will attempt to fix it.
 

REGISTRATION:
All BLIPMAPs are now freely available to registered users.  Registration (free) is needed for direct (no-nag-screen) forecast access.  New users can Register here.  Currently registered users can Logon (get new cookie) here or view registration (cookie) status here.  More info is available at the Registration Information webpage. 
EMAIL POLICY: 
There are many advantages to having one person's knowledge be shared and available to others, so I expect most BLIPMAP issues to be handled through the Blipmap Forum and ask those who have a question or problem or experience which could be of interest to others to post it there.  This allows others to comment on the matter if they have any personal experience and also allows any response I make to be read by others.  If you send me an email, I will respond personally only if it's nature is not appropriate for such posting - in other cases I will simply reply with a request to post to the forum. 
FEEDBACK REQUEST: 
I only look at the webpages and maps that I use personally or that I suspect might contain an error.  If you notice a consistent problem with either, please post a message on the Blipmap Forum.
