What is it with these on-line Almanac guys? One goes out of business just after some of us pay for it, the other won't download/install/run*

Downloaded no probs very handy site. Like the fact that once a port is loaded you can then work off line. Agree that it will be good if they expand.

Reply from an email I sent to Wiley asking about coverage:

______________

Hello
We would love to extend coverage when possible. At the moment we have the maps and data for the 150 ports currently featured. As the almanac grows in use and popularity we hope to be able to extend the coverage. So the short answer is watch this space, support our advertisers and tell your friends.

All the best

Charlotte

I'm using Windows 7 RC and it installed first time with no intervention from me.

Looks really useful, especially since I'm new to ribbing and will be looking for places to go.

Thanks for the link!

Tried it this again morning and the registration form worked fine. This time, the drop down menu for 'Country' is there

From then on, all ok. Nice, useful site. And, it's free!
