Oh, sorry--I was referring to this one

That's what I get for not splitting this topic up yesterday.

This page is interesting:

I've just about given up on the BIBE NPS web page.

- Webcams - gone ( I know they are not operated by NPS)

- The daily report is a joke.  :willynilly:

I just checked it and the link said March 4th, 2013 and this is what I was presented with:

Daily Report Wednesday, November 28, 2012, and The Mesa de Anguilla is closed until further notice due to aggressive mountain lion activity.

It just can't be all that hard to update the daily report and maintain the link.

So I have been following this thread and keep checking the daily report and it has always been current, maybe I have a magic computer?   :eusa_think:

It's a trippy webpage. The URL changes from one day to the next from being explicit to being generic. Pretty odd setup. You used to be able to edit the date in the URL in order to see the old reports, say a year ago, but now you cannot. The past no longer exists. 1984 all over again.

Today it shows March 7th for me also, but if click the link anyway and adjust the URL as follows, you get today's report for the 9th:

May not work tomorrow!  :roll:
