Re: My station's tweets to Twitter have stopped completely

I looked into this a couple of weeks ago, and the only change on the Twitter side is that they require tweets to be submitted using TLS version 1.2 and above from that date. I don't know whether or not Cumulus uses TLS 1.2 - I am assuming not - but as I know the Cumulus Twitter functionality is basi...

Re: New installation on Pi3B + with Buster and Mono 6.0 does not work

I've uploaded all the data .log files, from 2008 to August 2019. The file name is the same between Cumulus and CumulusMX, including upper and lower case letters and dots. There is no trace of these in MX http://sbonweb.altervista.org/meteo/record.htm Cumulus doesn't appear to be reading any of your...

Re: Clear all old records

Did you erase the files in data with Cumulus stopped? Provided you don't have a database or copy data files elsewhere as part of a complex setup then I can't think of any other reason for the data still being presented by Cumulus. Also, you may like to set the StartDate entry under the [Station] sec...

Re: Missing data on dashboard

Thanks for thinking with us. No problem, we all help each other :D That's why it can be anywhere , we need to know where and how it passes to the mono-system. Generally through syscalls. In your supplied code snippet, the function/method DateTime.ToString("MMMyy") will cause Mono to ask the OS for ...

Re: Missing data on dashboard

The common factor appears to be that you are both running Stretch and you both did an apt update. I think the additional stuff that you both installed was a bit of a red herring, as what additions you installed are unrelated on the surface. You both have identical symptoms of problems with date form...

Re: Big drop in temp in Cheshire, UK 25 August 2019.

Not a front in the conventional sense. Precisely what I said in my explanation. The fax charts would've needed a marker for the front edge of the air that originated over the sea in order to explain to the punter (one of) the reasons behind the west-east gradient in maximum temperature anticipated ...

Re: Missing data on dashboard

From where I stand, the problem is not in the locale. Have you looked at the values being used in your locale? Type the following in a terminal: locale -k LC_TIME This will list all the values. Note that there is more than one date format string. Have you been able to ascertain (i.e. by reading the...

if you ask a question like that you must specify what you want to know exactly and where you want me to get it, maybe even how.
Type "locale" on the command line and copy/paste the results on here.

And btw, I think everybody who updates his/her system regularly gets to deal with this issue.
Yes, the point you made makes me think perhaps some of your locale settings have changed, or perhaps are being changed by something. What does the "locale" output say?

Re: Missing data on dashboard

I agree, and I would point the finger at mono. Perhaps it uses a different locale or does something with it? When you did your update was there any change to something called "tzdata"? Did your update involve a reboot?

Re: Missing data on dashboard

Have a look for "Current culture" around the time of start-up with your new setup in the Mxdiags file. Compare with what the old setup reports. This looks very similar to problems people had when upgrading to Windows 10. Have a look on the forum, as there were a few posts about it. I think parts of ...

Re: Missing data on dashboard

This trouble seemed to happen after i did a sudo apt-get update and installed VNC Server. I can't seem to figure out what is going on but it looks like the date/time settings somehow changed. I notice that for the monthly log file for this month, it started writing to Aug.19log.txt instead of Aug19...

Re: Big drop in temp in Cheshire, UK 25 August 2019.

Thank you very much for taking the time to explain it. No problem. The weather is my passion, so I can explain it all day long :-) It's all very complicated I agree, and that's why we have supercomputers to attempt to model it. There's too much going on for forecasters to keep on top of it without ...
