Waldoboro Tide Prediction Data  - Calculated in Real Time - Recalculated every 10 minutes  
(the "+" denotes the current point on the tidal wave, which remains in a fixed center position on the graph & depicts the time at last calculation.
The tidal "wave" relative to it, moves from right to left over time. The white and grey sky represent the demarcation between daylight & darkness
The red "tick marks" on the time line (if any), depict those periods where high tides are predicted to be in excess of 10 feet
The Red Line depicts the mean High tide, and the Dark Green is the mean Low Tide
Light Blue=Rising Water, Dark Blue=Falling Water,  White=Daylight, Grey=Darkness

Internet Explorer has a problem refreshing the cache for  the Flash movie.  Only two work-a-rounds I'm aware of...  The first is to go to Tools - Internet Options - Browsing History... Then select  "Every Time I Visit the Web Page". Now each time you refresh the page, everything gets refreshed.   Just remember to set it back to "Automatically" afterwards.  The other equally "in-elegant" solution is to simply close and re-open Internet Explorer each time you desire to refresh the Flash movie cache.  Firefox and Opera browsers  don't exhibit the problem by honoring  the "No Cache" meta directives  or any Pragma directives..   Perhaps Microsoft after 8 attempts to address the issue,  will finally get it right by the time IE 9 is rolled out.  Don't think I'd bet the farm on it though....

Banned IP Addresses

Users who abuse this on-line weather station by continuously refreshing the page every several minutes or less by automated means, get "rewarded" by having their IP address being permanently banned from accessing the entire site...  There is simply no need to pound away at the server 24/7....   Even in New England, the weather does not change all that fast !  All it does is eat up bandwidth, creates horrendously large log files and slows things down for everyone else...  Regretfully, the only quick way to resolve this is to ban the offending ip addresses from accessing any of our servers.

About The WebCam

Black - No Image

The webcam occasionally goes off line at random times, where all that's viewable is a black jpg image.  Turns out the kittens (now adult cats) just love playing with the cables, and so far, no amount of other cat toy diversions or serious discussions with them on the matter, has had the least effect  (like most other discussions, coming to think of it)....   Short of running all the cables in metal conduit and enclosing the camera in an explosion proof steel plated housing (both impractical), no other solution comes quickly to mind.  So, I know when I'm beat.

Until they outgrow their boundless energy which hasn't happened so far, or they replace the webcam with something better on their long list of other fun things to trash that must be revisited and "checked off" every few days, expect a black webcam screen from time to time !

Kishka's kittens typically operate in roving gangs of  3 at once. It often amounts to a highly efficient coordinated assault that would do any Military Commander proud. So whenever you see a black webcam image, just imagine the mayhem and destructive forces at play going on behind the scenes !   Whatever you can imagine (and it will probably be quite a bit) will probably pale in comparison  to the reality ! 

1024x768 Images are captured & transferred directly to our local server once every minute -  between the hours of sunrise and sunset using a "retired" Olympus C-730 "Ultra Zoom" 3 MP digital Camera. Images are uploaded at a reduced resolution of 1024x768, which seems to be a reasonable compromise between those
with dial-up and broadband connections. Even so, a broadband connection makes for a far better experience. The image before being saved is Time and Date Stamped, along with the Temp, Humidity, Wind Speed/Direction, Barometric Pressure and trend which is acquired from the weather station database.

Compressing the images into a Flash Movie is cpu intensive, so movies are updated on average about once every two hours.

During the hours of darkness, the WebCam is not active. However the last image of the day is normally left on the server until webcam operation resumes the next morning. From time to time, we make changes to the camera zoom and view of the cove, or (truth be known) when we accidently bump into the camera !


The Webcam camera is controlled by Sebectec's camera controller:  http://www.sebectec.com/samples/index.htm
