[PD] Help parsing HTML with [httpget]

Hello all,

I was working on a patch that visualises and sonifies weather data
posted online in an HTML document. I was using [httpget] to grab the
document and using [listsplit] and [symbol2list] to parse the
necessary data. However, using this method, I will often get the error
"error: unpack: type mismatch". I was wondering if someone could look
at the patch and advise me of a cleaner way of doing this or showing
me what I might be doing wrong? It works 70% the time. Initially, I
was just increasing the frequency of the [httpget] to ensure that the
data changes are captured but this method isn't very clean and would
appreciate any corrections or feedback.

Best wishes,
Philip Cunningham
