WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: High Sierra issues
« Last post by tizza on Today at 03:18:47 AM »
Hi kidz, FYI, I don’t have a webcam and don’t have my station live, anyhoo I had WC v2.4.2 working on mac high sierra fine for 3 days and just upgraded to WC v2.4.3 today the 18th Oct. It’s also running fine, I’ve found the SilLabs March 24, 2017 the most stable driver for me. rMBP mid 2012, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, boosted 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7
Preparing for summer downunder it’s been 35ºc for the last 3 days 95f already. That’s VERY hot for where I live at this time of year!

Dear "Noah"  ;) and WeatherCat "survivalists," . . . . .  [biggrin]

I am preparing the ark.

[wink] . . . Well if you are going to all that trouble, perhaps you should "supersize" the Biblical dimensions for your ark, since it seems that we have identified quite a few more species than the Old Testament would have suggested.  You also probably need all your binary math skills you can muster so you count all those animals one and then two to make sure you have a pair!! . . . .  lol(1)

Cheers, Edouard  [biggrin]

Dear Xipper and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

I do wonder which driver is actually being used, since I have a Wacom tablet their installer adds a CP210x driver as well:

Well if the version number of the Wacom tablet is the same as the Silicon labs version, then that driver is two major releases out of date.  If WeatherCat is using that driver, that could easily be your problem.  Could you remove the Wacom driver temporarily and see if that's the problem?

Cheers, Edouard

Actually, just take a look at the code in "singleDew", that has the framework you need in place already!   ::)

Coming sunday there is bad weather predicted - nice forecast for home working...  :)

The forecast has since downgraded the potential rainfall, but those of you in harm's way of atmospheric rivers might want to start preparing . . . . . just in case! . . .

Dear Xipper and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

Multiple times per day mine stops reading data from the weather station and stops uploading it . . . .

Have you installed the latest driver from Silicon Labs?  It is described in this thread:

http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2550.0

Earlier drivers are not likely to work and could misbehave as you describe.

Cheers, Edouard

Thanks, but I did the day I upgraded to High Sierra.  I even checked for updates when this problem crept up, however I have Kext Version: 5.0.1 which is the latest available.

Just installed WeatherCat 2.4.3 in hopes that it helps fix this issue.

I do wonder which driver is actually being used, since I have a Wacom tablet their installer adds a CP210x driver as well:

Dear WeatherCat types affected by El Niño and/or La Niña,

The CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER/NCEP/NWS and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society have updated their El Niño /La Niña predictions and we continue to be under a La Niña watch.  Here is the full briefing:

http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/enso_advisory/ensodisc.shtml

The punch-line is: "La Niña conditions are favored (~55-65%) during the Northern Hemisphere fall and winter 2017-18."

This is further bolstered by the puzzling technical jargon to be found in the discussion for the first storm expected for this year on Thursday.  The offending sentence reads as follows (key text with my emphasis) :

"IVT progs are focusing on Thursday evening being the best shot for moderate rainfall (coverage has decreased, but a narrow band of values over 500 KG/m/s are now indicated)."

To those who forgot from last year - IVT stands for Integrated Water Vapor Transport and Kg/m/s is a measure of how much water vapor is being transported.  In other words, by decoding the technical jargon, it is clear that there was already the possibility for an atmospheric river event this early in October.  The forecast has since downgraded the potential rainfall, but those of you in harm's way of atmospheric rivers might want to start preparing . . . . . just in case! . . .

Cheers, Edouard

Not sure about that 100% batting average. It's simply hat I stopped double-checking that a posted link worked. Maybe I forgot to hold my tongue correctly this time? Probably because I Copied and Pasted a previously posted comment from another forum. [banghead]

I'll just create another text expanding url inserter until I find one that works here. That's a lot easier than using the buttons and adding all the styling (which I've actually mostly removed) and pasting in the pertinent link text. Oh well... the link is now edited for this site.

Maybe you should try just posting the link.
What?! And get out of the Design Business?!!! I'll send you a joke via PM later...  cmu:-)

Xair: you are continuing your excellent 100% batting average of sharing broken links with us. Maybe you should try just posting the link. Like this:

Unfortnately, they are not yet available to mere mortals. :) Stu probably has it in his OS test versions of the OS.
The key word there is ßeta. The comments in the article are probably as helpful as the article, IMHO. Look for a OS Security and possibly a hardware update for all of your devices, soon.
