Somebody somewhere (but I can't track it down) asked if CanalPlan could display "What3Words" codes for places.
I've now added a whole heap of additional references to places, and found a way to do it that doesn't clutter things up too much (I hope).
There's a little "more" button under the date on any gazetteer pages that we have extra data for. Others will slowly acquire the data as the background refresh works its way round.
See for example the (very appropriately coded) Barbridge Junction - "rise.yesterday.steers")

I think they should be back now - a quick glance suggests that I've now got the end dates all back to what they should be and re-enabled anything that should be live but I'll double check things tomorrow morning as its possible some stuff is sitting there live that shouldn't be and some stuff might not be live that should be.
There were two issues:
1) Curl access to the C&RT stoppages pages seems to be blocked - so it pulled back empty records.
2) Format of pages has completely changed. ... See MoreSee Less
Changes to how C&RT presents stoppages has broken the Canalplan stoppages and opening times listings - basically they've all vanished.
I'm now having to recode everything to get them back. ... See MoreSee Less

I continue to push a lot of updates, fixing some long standing bugs and feature requests.
I've just had a terrible hour or so where code that worked fine in testing kept breaking, randomly, on the live system causing route generation to time out more often than not but not every time. I tracked it down - it was poor quality coding again! Should now be fixed.
Sorry about that. ... See MoreSee Less

I've got a couple of days off when I'm not boating, and have been doing some (quite big) tinkering and bug fixes. Nothing dramatic, but some general improvements in the background. ... See MoreSee Less
Well its been a day and a bit and things seem to be OK. There are a couple of bugs but they aren't linked to the server operating system upgrade. ... See MoreSee Less
