Automatic Weather Updates

Current positions of the inner planets

The Mars Weather page is now 99.99% automatic, with rebuilds regularly throughout the day. The 0.001% that's not automated? Once a week I have to update the image that shows the relative positions of the inner planets. I think I can manage that :-D

Incidentally, the automation software fully rebuilds the page from the ground up, and it seems to have fixed my inability to edit the page through the wiki front-end. Maybe I didn't close off a tag or something and it upset the wiki (but not enough to stop it from generating and displaying the page).

Incidentally, the weather data is stored in a couple of sqlite3 files, so if anybody wants copies, just ask in the comments below.
