  • December 19, 2005 - Status Report
    We performed some minor network maintenance on December 8th that may have resulted in intermitted service interruptions for a few days. An issue caused by this network maintenance which affected the current conditions for some cities was also corrected today.

  • December 8, 2005 - Status Report
    Some network mainenance today was the cause of a few minutes of downtime on the site as we moved all of our servers onto a new IP address block. We apologize for any interruptions in service this may have caused.

  • October 25, 2005 - Status Report
    The WeatherCity website was switched to the new server today. This upgrade should provide greater reliability and faster website response times, especially during periods of high load.

  • October 6, 2005 - Status Report
    We have been running flawlessly since our database server upgrade. A switch on our network was replaced today but there should have been minimal downtime as a result of this maintance. We are scheduling a web server upgrade for WeatherCity which should dramatically improve the performance of the website. This upgrade will coincide with an IP address move on behalf of our provider, but we do not expect any downtime as a result of either change.

  • August 7, 2005 - Russia added; Extended Palm Support
    In our quest to be mobile compatible, we have begun to add support for Palm based browsers. Currently, support only exists for WebPro browsers at 320x320 but increasing support for more browsers is on the way.

  • July 24, 2005 - PDA Version (beta)
    We have been working on offering a PDA version of WeatherCity. Although platform support is currently limited, it has been tested and works well on Windows CE based PPC platforms with screen resolutions of 240x320. We will be adding WAP and SmartPhone support in the near future. If you wish to try out the PDA version and you have a compatible device, simply browse the website to your city of choice. If your device is detected you will be shown the PDA version of the page.

  • July 21, 2005 - New hardware!
    WeatherCity was offline for a couple of hours early this morning while we switched the site over to our new database server. The new server is much faster and more powerful; as a result WeatherCity can handle much more traffic than ever before, and the response time of the website has improved considerably.

    Today we added Mexico and over 1,400 additional cities within the United States, bringing our total to 1,957 cities worldwide.

  • July 1, 2005 - Canada Day
    We experienced our first major downtime today as a database corruption issue forced the system offline for several hours. Eventually the problem was resolved and the whole system is now returning to normal. The forecasts are starting to run again and everything should be back to normal within 12-24 hours. Our apologies if this downtime caused any inconvenience. We have a new database server on order which will greatly improve overall performance, as well as minimize any future downtime; eg, a reoccurance of today's scenario will be highly unlikely in the future.
