Mobile tide time table

I've just written a script to pull time tables from the bbc website, and make it more accessible for people from their mobile phones.

http://www.bint.org/tides/

Currently just pulls "todays" timetable out, will allow people to choose up to the next 6 days soon, as thats all the bbc site allows.

Ill be making some other tools soon, which are useful for me... like a fuel/oil ratio calculator.... well thats the only other one I can think of right now

Nice work. If I have two Barrus tanks do I need two coke bottles or can I use the same one twice? Will I get more mpg using a diet coke bottle?

You Could try it

But I don't think the JD would taste very nice with 2stroke as a mixer.

Works OK for me. Thanks!

The only glitch I can see is if you have a long location name and view it in portrait, then it goes over the "Area" link (but doesn't stop it working).
