WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: RS232 to USB Driver?
« Last post by SRS on Today at 04:23:00 PM »
The USB connector is mac compatible, The latest driver for a prolific chip listed as For Mac OS High Sierra (version 10.13) has been install (I THINK?) and while down loading permission was granted under my security & privacy settings but it does NOT show up in the comms port available in WeatherCat’s Station Communications window? And it does NOT show up when I run a terminal program check: this is what comes up ls: tty.usbserial*: No such file or directory (Not really sure if I doing the check correctly) However, the USB connector does show up or is listed under my USB connections devises on my mac?  Still having no luck any other recommendation or suggestions would be great!

WhatRoute has a terrific display! ThU5:-)

You can get the raw info from Network Utility->Traceroute, which seems to have been hidden in /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications/Network Utility.app, at least in macOS 10.12 Sierra.  I have an alias stored in my Utilities directory, but why did Apple do that? [banghead]

Is WhatRoute 64-bit or 32?

Phillip,  Thanks does it matter what type rs232 connector you need?(https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers).    I purchased a new sabrent USB to serial connector with a prolific chip so i down loaded the latest driver from prolific and Im still haveing NO luck.  When I start up weathercat it keeps coming up no weather station found??  Any other ideas??

Dear Blick, X-Air, Weatheraardvark, and WeatherCat users still stuck in Winter,

Today we received the biggest snowstorm of the winter: 12 inches. Last summer I installed a propane-fired boiler and radiant heat tubes to heat the concrete pad I poured in front of our garage. Here are two photos of me clearing the non-heated portion of the driveway with my trusty tank-track ATV and snow blower. Almost as much fun as playing with the new WeatherCat 3 beta, but quite noticeably colder.

I'm glad you are getting some snow.  We still haven't had a single bucket tip all of February.  Very clever your heated concrete pad!

Sorry about the rest of you getting such nasty weather.  California has been in a nasty cold snap, but still dry as a bone.  At least it never got cold enough at our house to harm plants or damage pipes.

Cheers, Edouard

General Discussion / I'm BAACK! (Re: Unable to connect to WeatherCat forum)

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat faithful,

"Comcast" may be monolithic, but it is composed of numerous "little" pieces. Please contact them and strenuously complain. I am on a Comcast supplied wire accessing the Athena.trixology domain as I write this. Comcast needs to get their act together. Period.

Thanks for the encouragement.  As it turns out the bottleneck was somewhere in the UK.  I was able to confirm this using WhatRoute.  Here is the trace:



It turned out that the hosting service for Trixology had locked me out using their firewall.  Stu was able to get me back on the "good graces" list.

So I'm baaack! . . .  :)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

WeatherCat iOS Clients / Re: WeatherCatRCP 1.0 (180216) for iOS Beta

Sorry for the typo, yes I meant to type 49255.

Thanks for explanation of Classic vs RCP w/ regards to the watch.

I guess the watch screen being blank in the RCP app after it tries to connect might be caused by the same issue that is responsible for the 3-minute connection delay on the iPhone. When I try to pull up RCP on the watch, I get the icon that shows me it is trying to connect, followed by a blank screen. Tapping on the blank watch screen doesn't do anything. I've waited as long as 5 minutes. If I keep trying to pull it up it will eventually connect. Never saw this in development builds. Must be something unique on my end but can't figure it out.
