Bulgarijeonline.com is a weather site where amateur weather stations can post data from all over the world. One day I received an email from overseas asking if I would like to try deciphering weather data. After one look at the synoptic data, I was not confident about my ability to write the code. I agreed, as long as he worked side by side with me to verify the data was correct. I ended up with a project that taught me how to decipher encoded data. It also added to my experience handling large data files. Better than that, I made a great friend for life.
