Batteries

After having trouble with alkaline batteries at low temperatures in the transmitter of my FO station, I switched to lithium batteries (specifically: Energizer Ultimate Lithium). Now, before the snow gets too deep, I went out today to check the batteries and was surprised to discover that I installed...

Ahhh Mark, you're right about 'no shortage' (at least most of the time), but I wonder about the 'free' part. I'll have to talk to the local power company about that. :)

Re: Lubricate anemometer?

It's working again. A little sunshine, a little wind ... Still heavily covered in icicles, so I don’t know how reliable it is at the moment. I guess I will check out some method of "heating" like Alan suggested as soon as I can get to it next spring. http://friendsofbridgelake.org/images/weather/pws...

Lubricate anemometer?

My anemometer is stuck for nearly a week now. Below zero temperatures and unusually high humidity (together with day-long fog periods) produce this: http://friendsofbridgelake.org/images/weather/frozen.jpg This is an older picture of the anemometer; because of the fog it’s barely visible at the mome...

WU bulk update of Cumulus data

I have been running Cumulus since October 2010, but never bothered to upload the data to Wunderground. A few days ago I finally registered my weather station with WU and now Cumulus updates my account every 10 minutes. Now: wouldn't it be nice to be able to upload all my historical data to WU?! I se...

Re: Raspberry Pi as a webcamera

Luckily there are no fast moving objects in my field of view, so no "ghosts" when combining multiple images. It might be obvious, but I mention it anyway: the default timeout between pictures is 5 seconds! You can reduce this value with the --timeout or -t parameter (in milliseconds). For example se...

Re: Non-metric scales in SteelSeries

Hi Bridgeman If you look at the previous posts in this thread you will notice that I made this 'enhancement' request about two years ago. At the time, Mark wasvery busy implementing the SteelSeies gauges as a 'standard' for Cumulus (there is even a special board for it now) and my request probably g...

Re: Non-metric scales in SteelSeries

Right you are, Mark. But my remark was written back in April 2012, and the SteelSeries script has come a long way since :)

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Sorry Beteljuice, I don't want to get into a heated discussion about this, especially since I highly appreciate the work you put into this. However: It is assumed that your weather station at least records temperature ! Why is that? Like any other component of a weather station a temperature sensor ...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Once the Beteljuice has had some (well-earned) rest, I would like to make some suggestions for the upcoming ver3.0 of this script? :D Tdiff: Does it make sense to treat a temperature difference of 0 as a missing value (like you do for the windrun)? Please look at my Tdiff data for 2013 <here> Tdiff:...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

As promised, a German translation. I couldn't find an equivalent for Wind Run, so I left the English expression. Also please note, the line for 'tdiff' is missing in the 'mylang' examples, which leads to an empty button ... 'de' => array( 'daily' => 'Täglich', // drop-down table selector 'seasonal' ...
