This years Mudfest festival was covered by the local news stations. The finale of the fireworks show was better this year – really rocked the valley. No, I didn’t record the fireworks as I was too busy enjoying myself; maybe next year. Happy festivus and may the fall be as beautiful as the summer!
Simple System Tray Icon application that keeps a small meter that displays the water level of the Schoharie Creek in Prattsville N.Y. within sight on the Windows desktop
This is a useless application to anyone other than people who live in Prattsville N.Y. and the surrounding area. It utilizes the data received from the unmanned experimental sensor located in Prattsville (the gage house is on the side of the creek down by the bridge). There is no Mac functionality at this time for this application (maybe later on). The code is less than elegant at this point. However, there is a view source context menu item if you would like to view the code anyway (Mac users unzip the installer).
I wrote this application for myself to keep an eye on the creek water level in my neighborhood – sorry if its not perfect at this point.
