An early prototype is available for alpha testing.  Actually it's really pre-alpha even, but it tests out some principles.  It has basic alerts, rain radar display on a slippy map, etc. but still has quite a bit of work to be done.

By joining the google+ group at https://plus.google.com/communities/108861125950661658928 the application will become available in the playstore.

"...shows that vaccinations don’t increase the mortality rate, and in some age groups, reduce it significantly. But it also can be used as a baseline against which we can compare the mortality rates in new vaccine studies" #skepticism   #vaccination

Preliminary version available at:
https://play.google.com/apps/testing/nz.co.voodoo.bangkokrain

This version notifies of all status changes regardless of relevance, which is useful for testing but could become a bit annoying.  Rain detection precision is not making use of the full motion vector extrapolation yet, so will become more precise.  At the moment it will tell you it is raining when there is only rain very close by.  This will be fixed.  It will also estimate how many minutes before rain reaches you.

Thai translations only partial.

Religion in NZ schools creeping in via the back door of over-political-correctness?
Prime Minister John Key said teachers in schools should be able to opt-out of delivering a karakia in schools if they wanted to.

This is probably the most beautiful beach at a resort on the island. The beach is very picturesque most of the year. The bungalows are basic but nice and right on the beach. No TV. Come planning to relax. A lot of beautiful photos you see are from the beach here.

Lovely bungalows on the beach. The beach is very nice. A wonderful place to stay, if you can get accommodation. Book well in advance.

Quite small and not much to offer. There is some good food to be found here, but it's not cheap.

Amongst the best on the island. A lot of beautiful photos you see come from here. There's a reason a lot of local famous people stay here...

Great place to stay. Not cheap but very nice and good facilities, so it's still good value. The location is fantastic; just a few minutes from Ayala Centre which has good food and drink options with indoor/outdoor seating and also a mall.
