Fixed the local weather feed for the TUCOTS Event Weather page. The Tripod dynamicly updating weather & horoscope feeds died a while back and I've been trying to get a decent replacement for them. I now have a weather feed back up, but I'm still working on a decent daily horoscope feed -- this is why the Daily Horoscope page has a renovation notice up, since all the astrological feeds for the various zodiac signs went bye-bye, leaving blank pages.
In addition to the weather feed, I also put in a sun & moon rise & set feed from the same site. The weather feed isn't as nice as the former Tripod one, though, since it only gives the current day -- the old one did a five-day forecast.
Oh well, it's the best I can do for the present . . .

Fixed the It Was a Beautiful Day in September . . . guestbook -- it was also messed up by the Bravenet hackers (see posts from 3/5/2002 & 3/15/2002 for more about this) so I had to re-upload the images for it to the rebuilt photo center and re-link them. I also added music to the guestbook -- an Yngwie Malmsteen tune called "Crying" -- and deleted some spam postings for commercial websites where the post had absolutely nothing to do with my site and everything to do with getting someone to go visit their commercial site.

Finally fixed the greeting card service. I had to re-upload every image, including all the backgrounds, to the Bravenet Photo Center, then re-link each one to the greeting card service. I also added links to more music files, so there would be more choices available than before, which also took time. It took me several hours to do all this. What gets me is that I wouldn't have had to do this if Bravenet hadn't been hacked into back in March. (See my posts from 3/5/2002 & 3/15/2002 for more about this)
Grump, grump, grump . . .
Well, at least now it's fixed and it's at least as nice as it used to be if not better . . .

Redid the graphics & color scheme of the Pagan Community Calendar page. I'd just copied another already existing page at the site for it just to get the page up but now it has its own unique look.

There will be another open event in just under a week -- we'll be going to the Dragon Boat Races. I've created the announcement, posted it on the members-only site, e-mailed the info both to the UnCoven members list and TUCOTS guest list and suitably updated the Upcoming Open Events and Pagan Community Calendar pages.
Phew! I'm pooped! Off to beddy-bye for me . . .
