This is the first time I’ve really played with css, and it sucks. But, now the DanChase.net homepage has big pictures! I went into each machine and changed the variables I talked about awhile ago http://danchase.net/blog/?p=93 then went and changed around the html and css to accommodate it. It seems that css is great when you know what your doing, and your starting from scratch maybe, or at least something you understand. Either way, let me know if I bungled something in the process!
Also, I added the ‘refresh’ metatag to the homepage, so it refreshes every 100 seconds or so if you just sit on it, and the old page can be found at http://danchase.net/oldweb/
Before I forget, I figured out how to make BIG images in wview. In the days to fast Internet access and speedy processors a 300×150 image is kinda pathetic, it doesn’t show adequate detail, and since I can’t figure out how to get the loop data out of wview, I can’t get detailed data from wunderground even though there are all sorts of cool graphs there. Anyway, the file is /etc/wview/graphics.conf and there are a couple of different lines to adjust both the graphs and dials:
# Width of bucket image
# Height of bucket image
# Width of bucket itself
and under ‘line charts’
# Width of image
# Height of image
and there’s a couple of more lines but you get the idea.
Also what I have to play with is the NOAA charts. This is what comes up on the wview main page, or on my site if you click on the image and it has all the nifty dials. On the bottom of that page there is a place to download a text file of the day, month, or yearly archive data. The problem is, it’s not activated on most of the boxes, and the ones that are do not upload to the danchase.net ftp site.
