February 2010: Finally restored the WXTide32 forums using
freeforums.org. I have had little time to answer email to this will serve
as a user-to-user forum.
February 2007: Released version 4.7 to implement new U.S. timezones
and a couple bug fixes
(see change list).

May 2006:We are on our new web host and busy making sure most of the
sites are still working. AffordableHost, our previous (and never again)
provider, just could not keep the server they put us on going for more than a

Errata and reported anomalies
The reference station Norwegian Bay, W. Coast, Australia has been
found to be totally inaccurate. To get correct tides for that location
generate a User Station with Carnarvon, Australia as the reference station
and use time offsets of -8 minutes to both the low and high tide times.
