Today I shut down my historical weather website. It continually broke because BBC Backstage Weather kept changing the format of their RSS feed. It became too much effort to maintain the site in a working state, so it had to go. Since there was only ever 943 hits on it and the vast majority of those were me, I don’t feel too bad. It served its purpose and I learnt quite a bit from writing it. In any case, I should focus my limited spare time on more useful projects.
I have kept weather_report up in case anyone wants to take it up and use it, but they would have to fix it for the new RSS format first.
