  • The following government wave predicting site is asking for input to determine if they will continue updating it or not. Please fill in the form before September 30, 2021. The link is at the top with all the red typing. This site is great at predicting when to go or not.

  • thanks Timmy!


    I wonder what's behind the idea to discontinue this product.  It would be pretty hard to replace and would force laypeople to either (i) pay for a commercial service, or (ii) spend a ton of time learning code and maintaining their own distribution of the software.  Both not a good solution for a public good financed by taxpayers.
