    Here's an idea:
    Why don't one of you fellers make a new site? It would be our forum plus links to all the other forecasting sites that have been mentioned in this and other threads? I know a lot of you guys have the smarts to do it. Your discussions on board designs leave me blown away. Making a website with a forum and links can't be that hard, can it? Someone step up! I'm too stupid. I don't know how post pics on here even with instructions that La P gave me.
    We could name it after our deceased brethren. Sandblasters.com

    I’m loving this forecast. Since I am literally at the beach everyday and I can eyeball it, I’m loving the blackout for everyone else, be honest it’s awesome. Well it would be awesome if there were actually any waves.

    Most of us not confident the forecast will return so the # of clicks will drop off as will advertisers/sales. Maybe the new owners will "spin" it off, these sites don't cost as much as you would think. What we don't know monthly/yearly expenses, IT costs vs. income to start off the endeavor. You would have to start a new LLC for "swellie" investors and transfer over the Domain/server (currently Go Daddy) to the new LLC.

    I have a friend who manages a web site for a local non profit that only runs less than $120 year for Domain & Server but it doesn't have a forum. I believe the forums are packages you can purchase from several software developers?

    Seems that no matter the location, I am getting inaccurate data.
    Meaning I only get up to 7/2 today, and the info is generic with zero swell info, water clarity and no wind direction.
    I have been seeing this for the past few weeks, is there a glitch somewhere?

    Your an idiot.

    There's quite a few discussions on this topic. Try doing the littlest bit of leg work (looking at current threads) and you'll get an answer.

    Jesus i really hate people. How many new people have joined just to start a new thread asking this exact question. Expecting information just spoon fed to them. You don't even have to look far, it's the most active thread here. The amount of people doing this is scary. Can no one look for the answer to the question first? If your smart enough to join the forum and ask you'd think you'd be smart enough to think "hey, the forecast is broken. They are probably discussing it on the forum. Let me take a look and see if i can find an explanation".

    Slight overreaction, sorry, but laziness and expecting everything handed to you on a silver platter really just grinds my gears. Can you imagine being too lazy to even check 3 or 4 thread titles?

    The future is very scary with people like this all over the place

    Okay, so you are new. And you managed to irk everyone. Simple solution--post pictures of your girlfriend, naked of course. But if you like men, don't bother. We don't like men. We don't even like each other; we bicker a lot. In fact, we probably won't like you, unless photos are put up. We insist--rite of passage sorta thing......

    GF,
    There are numerous open source ("free") forum software package out there, so it may not be necessary to purchase one.

    A search for "free open source forum software" will bring up articles, such as "11 Best Open Source Forum Packages", etc. So from that it would be a matter of matching requirements .. of what features the forum needs, and also what the package needs to run on a host platform, etc.

    Anyways, just thought I'd throw that out there. I'm still hoping the new owners and IT people can figure things out, but we shall see. I didn't have much expectations this week given that it is a holiday weekend, and many people are likely out.

    Carry on dudes ..

    Dang man. You got me. Lesson learned, proof read and check grammar before calling someone an idiot.

    Ok...ok...so you've never steered me wrong ccdog. But I'm a little concerned by your advice.

    If I'm gonna be exposed to open sores, I'm afraid I'll need the expert medical advice that can only be found at SI more than ever.

    Oh, wait a second...my bad...never mind.
