Re: that is cool

The .dat files download rather than open in the browser now. To view them nicely I have to save them, open them in WordPad, copy all the text there, open the file in Notepad and then save the text I copied from WordPad into Notepad. By default I have .dat files open in Notepad on my computer to see them better. (I don't like WordPad.)

The raw text file should appear fine in the model system at HurricaneCity:
http://hurricanecity.com/models/archive/al/2017/02/atcf/nhc/Best_Track.txt

When you navigate to the best track page:
http://hurricanecity.com/models/models.cgi?basin=al&year=2017&storm=02&display=best_track
In the top menu look for:

Best Track data in: Original Raw File

To get to the best track page...

Go to a storm's page in the model system and click "View all past best track data in table form" under the map in the best track section:
http://hurricanecity.com/models/models.cgi?basin=al&year=2017&storm=02

Or on most any other page that has model data for the particular storm, the menu near the top of the page should have:
View this storm's: Best Track Data

The model system updates every half hour at :05 and :35 past the hour at HurricaneCity.

If you prefer to embed something manually for any of these sites, you can also do that. For Ustream, you can only embed live videos manually rather than using the above feature. No other sites are currently supported.

If you embed something manually please be aware that due to the security restrictions on some browsers manually entering embedded code may not allow it to appear correctly when you view it. However, after you post the message it will work properly. This will not be a problem if you use the above feature to add embedded content.
