Re: Yearly records table

It sounds rather like Yet Another Dayfile Reader Yes exactly - except a focus on yearly extremes as the output rather than for days/months/seasons. I guess it could be done by adding a third page ("yearly") but the column formatting would be fundamentally different to the "daily" and "seasonal" pag...

Yearly records table

On my wish-list are some tables that are similar to the standard "this year's highs and lows" but document the values for this and each previous year. The rows would be years and the columns various max, min or totals. I'm guessing there would need to be separate tables for the various sorts of meas...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Billy :? In the land of oz we are called Bruce ;)

and just to clarify, the sample mean in the world of statistics (ie an estimated average) is traditionally symbolized by "x-bar" - ie an "x" with a bar across the top. Not sure if the forum fonts can cope with this?

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

thanks for the explanation. I have spent an hour in the naughty corner and learnt the lesson (hopefully) and not be sent there again.

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Thanks for pointing out the error - yes, I meant totals, not averages! ... you have discarded daily averages altogether Daily rainfall has such a strongly skewed distribution - at least where I live :) - that it does not lend itself well to using the average as a summary statistic. How old is the ve...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

For the perhaps one (?) other person who might be interested in this, the cell colouring has been sorted. I decided to use different colours for day, monthly total and running total values, given they have different meanings and of course ranges. A big thank you to the beteljuice, not just for the c...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

That would only make the year average figures more inaccurate. They are actual averages ie. over the number of days where records exist rather than days in month. Thanks for pointing that out - mine doesn't do that so I have introduced a glitch somewhere :groan: When using monthly totals in the yea...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

I share with Phil the same desires for monthly rainfall totals in the year averages table and an indifference to daily averages. I had been contemplating doing something about if for a while and hadn't got around to it until a few days ago. I started modifying the dayfile reader and then when I got ...

Re: NOAA reports stopped

Solved - thanks to your help. The Reports folder had a subtle change in its name – must have occurred during the time I was backing up and restoring data files when installing one of the new builds in early January. I’m sorry to have bothered you with this. :oops: At least I have started the journey...

Re: NOAA reports stopped

Here is a zip with the MXdiags and ftp log (I have no skills in reading these tea leaves), and the last 3 months of NOAA reports (Dec 2018 - Feb 2019). It covers the daily rollover that has just occurred at 9 am local time.

Re: NOAA reports stopped

No. RPi. My realtime table is complete. This has not missed a beat for a couple of years. I did install two or three MX updates in early January - I hadn't updated since Steve's last build; that was 3043 I think? Maybe I messed something up during that process?

Re: NOAA reports stopped

The last monthly report with data is NOAAMO0119.txt (has entries for days 1-7 only) and a yearly report NOAAYR2019.txt has the summary for January but only covering the first 7 days. Both files have file dates indicating they were last modified at the end of the seventh day (actually 9 am on the 8th...

NOAA reports stopped

My last monthly NOAA report was a month ago - 7 Jan 2019. No relevant setting has been changed - well intentionally! I would be grateful for clues to troubleshooting this.
