Update on Solar banner problem

Earlier last week I posted about how my solar banner seemed to stop updating and not showing the current day's condition. I emailed Paul N0NBH about the issue and he responded very fast asking for more information. We exchanged several emails and he was very helpful and wanted to get to the bottom of the problem that I was having with his solar banner. Paul explained to me that Chrome and Safari browsers seem to have issues with his banner. He went on to explain that on his site there are some other links one being  Marv (W4ZD) that may work better for me. For you Mac Safari users (like me) he also provided a great link to an article that deal with clearing Safari's cache using some simple short cuts. It would seem with Paul's solar banner when using Safari or Chrome the cache has to be cleared and the your page reloaded for the banner to update. On my desktop that runs Win7 I have not had this issue.
