    Re: Cumulusutils

    @hills: Hi Phil, I see what you did and I have to appreciate the skills and inventivity of awk and sed scriptwriters getting there. I had never thought the output would be reworked like this although the other phil (phil23) did something like that on the graphs module, also well appreciated from the...

    Re: CumulusMX Setup on a Costech FT0203

    Check out the Wiki.
    The answer as far as I can see is : no, a Costech FT0203 is not supported.

    @phil:
    I'll look into it. Not the coming three days, after that I'll have a look.
    Cheers, Hans

    Re: Cumulusutils

    I have a question for the users (as a consequence of the issue by @laulau above): So far several problems have occurred with the data in dayfile.txt, three types: Illegal format for the time of a value (e.g. '7:00' i.s.o. '07:00') illegal value for a number, which triggers an overflow event An empty...

    Re: Cumulusutils

    Version 2.1.0 is online. Although the user probably won't find significant changes, there are two places where the data handling got a big overhaul: reading the dayfile.txt file and in creating the top10 list. In the latter I used single statement LINQ queries i.s.o. the more low level approach I us...

    1 minute on Google gave me this link that involves your home country: https://rmets.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/met.1814 OK, fair enough, I withdraw my comments on Wow completely :| Nevertheless I think: 1) Results could be made more readily available/visible for the WOW participants 2) The...

    Re: Fire Weather, a new approach

    Wow - that's a bit of a generalisation! The UK Met Office make active use of WOW data - both in real time forecasting/nowcasting during weather events, and assimilation of selected parameters into forecasting models (after careful quality control, of course). https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/le...

    Re: Fire Weather, a new approach

    They could do with a software update.... their 10 minute updates are on-line about 25 minutes after they are logged. Think my Cumulus updates about 2 seconds after the update with my 40mbps upload rate. Or with a faster computer system :) Anyway, there is some water, some relief. It must feel a bit...

    Re: Fire Weather, a new approach

    @phil: I don't think they - the BoM or any participating meteo service - actually do something with the Wow stations. As far as I can see it is just there. Maybe some data experimenting but nothing serious l ever read about.

    Re: Fire Weather, a new approach

    Ah, yes, I made an error because the BoM prediction is the total for a whole week. And that seems to become realised. Nevertheless, the stations around Adelaide have some surprising numbers (Crafers since the 13th) and a failing system (Surrey Downs since the 11th). This way it has little use to sho...

    Re: Update from Cumulus 1 issues

    [...] there are going to be tons of people out there that have no concept of what a Web Based application is [...] So, make it the first remark in the README / Wiki with a short explanation? At least it gives you something to point to. And indeed, it may be somewhat confusing for users who have dif...

    @phil23, @hill, @sjmcinness, @gti138, griffo42: I saw this prediction today: 200113 Prediction Australia.JPG and checked your sites. That was quite a discovery: none of you had any rain in the pwsFWI prediction and none of you received any rain (so that's good from a prediction point of view, bad fr...

    @saratogaWX: Thanks by me as well.
    Which brings me to another question (which may not be yours to answer) but to contribute to the wiki requires an account. I did request one but never received an answer. Where is the black hole that request went in to :?: :groan:
