Dear WeatherCat fans of a certain rascally billy-goat station wagon, . . . . . 

Today was the day!  Early in the morning I pushed Biquette out of the garage so that she could get nice and clean.  She even got a bit of a bubble bath in the process:



Then it was up on the flatbed transport truck:



We lucked out!  It was the same driver that brought her to Orinda Motors the previous time!  The trip was uneventful and after a few miles, she was unloaded at the Orinda Classic Car Center (the division of Orinda Motors now devoted specifically to classics.)



Finally she was parked right next to her engine so that they could bond once more!



Mission accomplished!  [bounce]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat data submission junkies,

I don't understand everything I read at this site. I'm sure our Dev does. I think those that use Twitter for updating weather from WC would not be considered the same as those organizations that Push info to "thousands" of Twitter accounts.
. . . . .

I don't think WeatherCat uses any of the functionality in question.  As best as I can tell, the issue is mainly if you want to create a competing App for Twitter's own client.  WeatherCat is simply posting data using the API that Twitter is providing.  That's the sort of functionality that Twitter has to be embracing.  As you say, only our fearless leader would know for sure, but given all the problems facing the world today - this one can probably stay on the back burner!  ;D

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Looks like not much more than an attempt to monetize the "platform", but I'm just a cynic. [rolleyes2] I don't use any "Twitter apps" and only recently remembered that I was using WC to post there! [rolleyes2]

Thanks for the photos and the update. I was wondering what had become of this sweet project.

Wow! A work of art, there is nothing like a really nicely prepped bit of engineering.

Dear WeatherCat fans of a certain rascally billy-goat station wagon, . . . . . 

Last time I reported on my trusty wagon, the engine was still languishing in Scottsdale, Arizona.  However, the last issues were resolved by the end of March and it was shipped in April.  Actually it has been over a month since a rather large and heavy crate arrived at Orinda Classic Car Center.  Alas they have been so desperately swamped with work that the crate was shunted in a corner while they tried to catch up.  Finally this week they were close to catching up and had enough time to open the crate and allow what was inside to peek out:



Here is the driver's side:



Here is the passenger side:



Finally here is the back:



They were still really busy and a Lincoln needs to be towed home before Biquette can come in.  However, the plan is to have her transported this upcoming Tuesday.  She will be getting some suspension and steering upgrades before the engine gets put back.  In the meantime, I've got to corral all those parts which have piled all over the house and get them ready to be put back together!

All of a sudden a very exciting time! . . .   [bounce]

Alas, that will make me a bit more scarce on this forum until things settle down once more.

Thanks for your support!!   [tup]

Cheers, Edouard   [cheers1]

Dear Blick and WeatherCat gamblers on da' weather,

Their guess may be more scientific than mine, but mine is just as probable.

 [wink] . . . . Oh I dunno'  50% odds are simply a coin toss, but your odds are much better in a coin toss if you happen to sneak in a two-headed coin! . .  lol(1)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Downloaded and ran - works fine on Local and on Trixology, but not on the Internet through my router. Weathercat works fine on the Internet, but not RCP. Any thoughts?

I also noticed that certain settings cause it to instantly crash when launched. The only way to run it after that is to remove the app, and reinstall. But still I cannot run it over the web.

Did you update your port forwarding for the new port?  Previously Weathercat client only used ports 49250-49254, the RCP runs on 49255.
