Dear Dave and WeatherCat shutterbugs,

This was on the afternoon of the 17th, clear skies and warm temperatures. I looked up and with only a few seconds to do so I got this photo. The airplane was moving very fast, most likely at its cruising speed and altitude.

Nice! :)  I've also been thinking about trying to capture something like that.  I'll have to put my camera in some spot where it is handy!

Thanks for sharing! [tup]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat users who occasional give-in to da' boob tube, . .

Apparently, you recorded a different program! Mine was defiantly "Deciding"... I meen "Decording"... oh well, if we wait long enough the spelling will change, just like the weather... I can only blame my haste and an over-zealous spel chequer. That's my story and I'm stickin t0 it! [blush]

 [wink] . . . . Oh sure!  Another one of those cases of: "To err is human, but to really foul things up you need a computer!" . . . .  lol(1)

Well, I'll have you know that I have definitive proof that NOVA could not decode the Weather Machine!  We only got a partial recording!  It seems at about an 1 hour and 45 minutes our local PBS station got out of sync with either Comcast or our TiVo and the end was nothing but gibberish!  I'll try to record it again tonight.

The much more interesting program was the one following the two hour Nova; "Bill Nye the Science Guy". There is an interesting side of his life many of us never knew.

Okay, I'll check into that!  [tup]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat users with fingers that have a mind of their own.

Currently on Nova. Donít expect all the answers! ;)

Sorry to report but the program episode is: "Decoding the Weather Machine."  Our TiVo has already recorded it and we'll get to it when we have a chance.  Agreed I'm not very optimistic on this sort of episode from NOVA.  I still remember enough from my getting my bachelors in Physics from U.C. Berkeley to understand how difficult understanding the atmosphere actually is.  Sadly a lot of rancor we are experiencing over the status of climate really boils down a failure to understand the limitations of science to comprehend a chaotic system like our atmosphere.  The experts are desperate not to admit it, but they simply cannot make the predictions we really want to have in hand - anymore than they can predict earthquakes or volcanic eruptions.

Cheers, Edouard

WeatherCat Releases / All gone! No mor'! (Was: WeatherCat Version 3.0.0)

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat ground keepers,

Maybe you can siphon some of that antique gas in the Buick?! OTOH, that gas may be too powerful of that little mower!!! :o

 [wink] . . . . . All gone!  No Mor'! . . . . .  [biggrin]

Sadly, I'm getting better at this mothballing the car routine.  As soon as brought the wagon home, I bought myself a fancy gas siphon and drained as much as I could from the tank.  I'll need to find a moment to run over to a local gas station and put 1 gallon in the portable container.  That's usually enough to last the entire season.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I misunderstood the question, the Data Loggin Interval is 30 Minutes. 1 minute uploads to Weather underground. Any suggestions on either setting?

That's why some of your lines appear flat. Your logger is only storing 2 data samples per hour. So if you have to upload history files to WeatherUnderground to recover from being disconnected you are only getting one data reading every 30 minutes from your logger.
