NWS problems

Hi guys,

first of all sorry for my delayed replies (to those who emailed me in the last 3 days). I just came from my first longer business trip in my new position (btw. it was great, great colleagues and very helpful).

As always… just when you are not available for a few days things break – in this case as some of you noticed, NWS is making changes to their site, it seems like they are not done because blocks start and stop working almost at random. I am aware of this, but I wasn’t able to look at it yet because I was away since Wednesday and to be quite honest I might still wait a few days because it looks like the changes are not finished and there is no point in fixing it now and it then breaking tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience

    Just add and s to the “https://

    been working ok for me.

  3. Jachym, Is there a time frame for when there will be an update for the NWS blocks and it appears things have stabilized.


  4. Thanks Jachym. Yes, NWS changes are not yet stable. As I was checking some of the new links they worked, and an hour later they wouldn’t.

    Great to hear that the new job is a plus so far. I have great confidence it will work out for you.
