Re: A Little Day / night Chart Revisited ...

You probably have to have studied astronomy at some stage to be able to recognise a truly dark sky. Sadly there are few places in the U.K. that are free of light pollution. I suspect it’s only in a truly dark area where you would be able to detect a twilight glow to the north at this time of year. I...

Re: A Little Day / night Chart Revisited ...

I’m happy to be corrected but if you subtract 18 from 66° 34’ ( the Arctic and Antarctic circles) you get 48° 34’.

Anywhere in either hemisphere with a latitude lower than that will have proper darkness all year. Higher and you won’t.

Re: A Little Day / night Chart Revisited ...

Paul, Of course we have nighttime. It’s dark outside now. But as Mark has said at higher latitudes the sun does not drop below the horizon enough for twilight to change to proper darkness. The sun has to be more than 18° below the horizon for full darkness and it doesn’t between late May and late Ju...

Re: Tips for improving my website

Hi Luca, welcome to the group. Your site looks very good. I have one comment. On the About link the name of your equipment is blank. And in the 'About this City' refers to Springfield rather than where you live. It would be nice to know something about that. ;)

Re: Very Nice Cumulus Site

I'm another running VVP on a Win XP netbook that has been running more or less continuously for over 10 years now. It runs Cumulus 1, WeatherLink and VPLive for keeping the time accurate. I dread to think what I will do when the Samsung NC10 stops working. It's rarely powered down which I think help...

Re: Monthly record

Tom,

I'm afraid there is no lastyear.ini file so you will need to edit each month file - Apr18log.txt for example. Alternatively in Cumulus choose Edit - Dayfile.txt and that might be easier than the txt files.

Re: PHP code has stopped calculating Local Noon overnight

Sfws, I imagine Steve grabbed today’s and tomorrow’s sunrise / sunset times for two different purposes. The latter so he could show how much more/less daylight there would be compared to today. Having got that out of the way then calculating local noon as the mid-point between today’s sunrise and su...

Re: New Record? Post here.

The 26th, for the third day running, broke the Feb temp record and hit 21C for the first time. Admittedly my sheltered back garden will have had an effect especially with very little wind despite the daytime FARS.

Re: New Record? Post here.

A quite remarkable record was set today. It's winter in the UK but today my lowest humidity value of just 29% was achieved. And that new max temp for February was also broken today. All the more remarkable when you consider last year on the 26th we were invaded by "the Beast From The East" with dayt...

Re: PHP code has stopped calculating Local Noon overnight

Hi Mapantz, The lights burn late at Host Presto! They've come back to me in the last 30 mins with the solution. This is now a working version of my .htaccess which copes with beteljuice's Data Summary pages plus the small piece of code on my index.htm that calculates Local Noon. AddDefaultCharset IS...

Re: PHP code has stopped calculating Local Noon overnight

I've finally got to the bottom of this problem and have asked HostPresto to help fix it. I have two .htaccess files in public_html but with slightly different names. .htaccess and .htaccess_ One is required for the DataSummary pages to be displayed. The other is required for Local Noon to be calcula...

Re: PHP code has stopped calculating Local Noon overnight

The Local Noon problem has resurfaced again this afternoon. HostPresto have restored index.htm but despite trying various versions of PHP have been unable to resolve the problem. This code was kindly given to me by a user here on Cumulus but I've forgotten his name. It's pretty simple really. Take t...

Re: PHP code has stopped calculating Local Noon overnight

Problem has been resolved by HP restoring betel_datasummary.php from the backup. I thought that would have been done when I did the restore but clearly there's a right way and wrong way and I did it the wrong way. :D Appreciate the help.

Re: PHP code has stopped calculating Local Noon overnight

I checked but I can't see that option. HostPresto are going to restore as everything seemed okay yesterday.

These are the options available to me.
