good idea and possible but more programing needed so if someone wants to do that I can give them webpage access. like everytime we would add or change something its a webpage re-make. here we just edit the post.

for now, next time I'm in the webpage, I'll add a link to this topic in the weather webpage so folks can get directed directly here.
