Week 3

 I spent the third week largely developing an interface to allow users to select which data the wanted to comment on. This involved getting station, offering, and variable data from the database and populating <select> tags with it. This task also got me familiar with writing to the backend image-writing service the creates plots based on the url you give it. This will come into play later when I have to not only write these urls but read them. Finally, I finished getting Drupal user information which is required when submitting comments to the database. This process took longer than expected because of an include required to access the Drupal user information that I had trouble finding documentation about.
