Hey Ben, this is Grant Williams from Cal Poly Earth Sciences department and we had exchanged a couple emails back and forth, but I had not heard back from you from the last one. I am sure and understand you guys are probably flooded with emails but as my spring quarter is wrapping up and I am trying to figure things out, I thought this might be a quicker way to let you know I had replied. Thanks a lot, --Grant Williams

Heyyyy Ben ;) how ya doing .....good I hope. And I hope that you had a wonderful bank holiday and going to enjoy the expected forthcoming waves. Okay enough creeping, and yes I would like a favour from you. And that favour is that you e-mail the user going by the name of Supergirl (formerly known as Irish Surf Chick), as even though she has super powers, she has a problem and needs your help to complete her mission. You see for a moment her powers were drained and she has forgotten her password to get her onto her profile on this suberb site. And regardless of how much krytonite she munches on (supplied by her boyfriend Superman) she can't remember it. Unfortunately, due to nasty action by some ''baddies'' she had to closed down the e-mail address that she had registered for her profile so that they couldn't find her. Supergirl is now fully fit and all powers practically restored with the exception of her password memory. So would you be really, really kind and e-mail her on the following address with a new password, so that she can get back onto her MSW profile. I'm sure that you'll do this because I know that you are a super duper kind person and would help a maiden (even a flying one with blue boobs!!!!!) in distess. Her new e-mail address is theoneandonlyirishsurfchick@gmail.com. Thank you from both ''blue boobs'' and Betty with wonerful legs ;)

Hahaha. The troll(s) have even negged comments on a MSW admin's profile page...What nerve, what gumption, what daring...what an example!!! Who will correct this injustice?

the forecasts for here are pretty much spot on, if you account for the thermal wind effect. cheers. let the clown pics on now. look into my eyes.

p.s. everyone wants them, you know it makes sense. make it a buy print'er and i'll give you a backhand (or spend the vast profits in your shop, promise).

While I’m here I think the hurricane forecast page is on the fritz, Colin’s data is all over the shop, maps are overlaying info. Might just be my computer but everything else on the site looks ok….except our swell forecast!

The iPhone app is amazing...I check it every morning for the wind forecasts (I'm a sailor and kitesurfer). Just upgraded to the iPhone 4 and the app crashes every time I try to open it. Are you going to update this for iOS 4.0? Thanks for all you do.

Ben - just wanted to say Nice Work. At least here in the wilds of Maine, USA, MSW continues to provide the best tools to make an informed decision. It's beholden on every waterman to combine the tools presented them with a baseline knowledge to make their own judgments & Magic Seaweed is at the top of my list. Cheers - Strizz

Hey Ben. Just wanted to say ive been using MSW for a few year now. and the new swell reports are great. its rare you guys get it wrong and even if you do your not out by much. Me and my fellow surfers here in lossie and around the area all love the site and how much time and effort it must take to run everything! keep up the awesome job you guys do.

Ben, your 'favourite photo' of the surfer from beneath, the thumbnails there but the picture is missing? Hopefully not a db corruption issue . . .

Hi Ben, did you remove Robro ? If so he is back as rrobro spewing his vile poison all over the site.

Hi Ben, Is the vacancy for an MSW content editor / manager still open? I would like to submit an application but wondered if it was perhaps too late? Thanks Tom
