Thanks Paul,the Davis VP2 been really working well and reliably.

Re: new Record it flash a led

This might not be exactly what you want, but should get you started. To start with, this is just for the all-time records, as the monthly records are bit more complicated. Enter in the head section (between the <head> and </head>) <script type="text/javascript"> <!--records variables declarations --...

Re: new Record it flash a led

Yes that is possible with Javascript which I used on my homepage of my website. I am a javascript novice so there maybe a better way. The method I use is a little manual as I don't think there is a way for Cumulus to handle this. If you look at the source (Ctrl + U on windows) of my webpage you can ...

Re: Site going down.

It's good to hear you have been making progress and thanks for trying to resolve this. It's a horrible shame how low some people are in what they do to cause trouble. Hopefully you have fixed the issue and you do enjoy your holiday. :)

I received an automatic message, followed by another email that an Abuse ID will be assigned once my inquiry is processed. This last email came from abuse@hetzner.com.

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

Yes, it's not looking good but I hope this trouble will end somehow as there are plenty of good stations transmitting on WU. I have had another 20 missing but only 5 in the last 12 hours. I have also tried editing my status note but after a while it reverts back to the old message. :(
