    It is working on Win 10! And it is fine!
    Is there any hope for a global version some day in future? Or at least for Finland (-;
    Some technical observations/questions:
    Saving data and images to same folder as program is sure simple, but how about creating subfolders “data” and “images” for next version?
    Alltogether it is great as it is now, don’t understand otherway.

    Got it, it’s working, and it’s much more awesome. You are simply awesome.

  3. One can only wish that the creators of certain commercial software packages made it this easy …

  4. Minimum temp for a certain month, I assume that means average daily minimum for the whole month? Because it says January 1994 in Saratoga, NY the minimum was 0 when I remember many days in Jan., 1994 of below -20 and even one day of -27F

      The January 1994 coldwave set many all time cold records in the Midwest and Northeast. I believe Indianapolis and Harrisburg were two of many cities that did so.

      • Yes, -27 was our all-time coldest day here in Saratoga, and Glens Falls got -35 that month, which is pretty impressive for any state not ending in “ota” (Dakota, Minnesota)

    Tony, I deinstalled version 1.0 and installed 1.1. Had the same problems with Norton Antivirus as I reported for 1.0 but had SONAR restore the program, and it runs. However, I still get no results. It just sits there with “Download Started”. I suspect Windows Firewall is not allowing the download to proceed and the program just hangs with no error message. I checked Windows Firewall and did not see “PullingBackTheCurtain” listed in any of its program lists, so I could not allow it or enable it and I’m not sure how to do that.

  6. I’m getting “download failed” from V1.2, but there is a small chance the download site is blocked here at work (very small). I can normally access your site no problem.

    No issues here… all good 🙂
