From The World Of Webcams: Dad’s Webcam Shames Drivers: A man has become so frustrated that other parents have ignored pleas from a school and police that he has set up a Web site aimed at “framing and shaming” the culprits.
New URL, Same Stuff: I instructed my co-worker Frank (the one who went to the Olympics in Greece) to check out this blog yesterday, and he promptly typed in “wxnation.com/weatherblogs/wire/” only to express frustration that he was at a “Page cannot be found” message. I decided, that was it — time to rename the blog URL from /log to /blog. I think I came up with that original folder name very late one night in Feb. 2003, when I started this web “log.” No one really calls it a log though. Since I’ve just made this change, why not make more, so, while I’ve enjoyed the alliteration of “WXnation Weblog,” I have cut the “We” out of the title as well. It’s now just a blog. All of those old links will redirect automatically to the blog folder by tonight, by the way. I’ve spruced up the navigation columns in the city pages as well to reflect these changes. Any negative feedback should be sent “ATTN: Frank” and I will make sure he gets them right away…
