Re: -17.8 low temps (loads of them)!

Ok - I have now found the dayfile and data editing facility under Data Logs...

Re: Error uploading data

Ok....
My mistake
I had not updated the Logind.conf file correctly.
I didnt realise the the # symbol denoted a 'rem'd out line ('comment' if you will).

Re: Graph goes to 0 for Pressure in b3074

Also seems odd that the only other reading for pressure you get is a bit over 1000..
My pressure is constantly on the move.

Looking at your other charts, they also dip to zero at the same time
