Wolfram Alpha and the IOM regatta
Did you know that if you simply type "windspeed" into http://www.wolfram.com/
.. it'll figure out where you are and give you a current and past weather plot?
Am looking forward to watching some of the IOM Regatta here in SD this weekend. Should be wild as it'll be pretty strong winds in occasionally rainy sonditions.. have already met Fred who's come down early and understand Jess Atkinson our ODOM Class Secretary and many other seasoned pros will be here. I'm sure i could learn a lot watching the IOM races this weekend..
By the way I'm hoping my buddy Rich H has his servo jitter issues now resolved.. it was tough to hear his frustration constantly re-correcting course as his Red ODOM 396? would swing to and fro on it's own. I know he got Louis' help putting in a new servo to resolve it yesterday. Hope that helped..
