Weather long ago

"Ah!"- An incosiderate reader did utter... -"but what if I want to know how was the weather, say, three years ago in some place?"
-"Tell me about the 3 December 1998, for instance... was it cold in Berlin?"

Easy: Never underestimate the awesome MIGHT of the web: T'was pretty cold indeed: -7 ~ -4 Celsius...

Note how the query is composed:
http://www.weatherunderground.com/history/airport/EDDI/1998/12/3/DailyHistory.html
"EDDI" is here the ICAO code for Tempelhof, the city airport in berlin... should you want, instead, the weather for Paris (Orly) you would use LFPO, for Brussels, you would use EBBR and so on.
You will find all possible (ICAO) airport codes here...

Here the "weather long ago" search mask:
(KCQT is Losangeles downtown... change with a different three (IATA) or four (ICAO) letters airport code)





Where people live

This is useful for ALL Europe (but works best for central and north european countries):

The same in english: http://www.uk.map24.com/

Internet traffic

Rating (1-100, the more the better) updated every 15 minutes. At times it is useful to know if it's your ISP or just "the web" that's slowing things down.
