General Weather Discussion / Re: Deciding the Weather Machine
« Last post by xairbusdriver on Today at 01:13:29 AM »
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]

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.

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.

Dear N4KHQ, Blick, and WeatherCat Davis station caregivers,

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

The Davis data logger is effectively a weather data backup when WeatherCat isn't running.  So if you want to keep your WeatherCat data uniform, the best choice is to set your data logger to the same value that you have WeatherCat's data sampling interval.  The sampling rate is set in the Misc2 pane of the preferences and is described on starting on page 169 in the WeatherCat 3 manual.  Setting the data logger is described on page 69.  We also have a WeatherCat Wiki entry that explains the trade-offs in setting the Davis data logger:

http://wiki.trixology.com/index.php?title=Capacity_of_the_Davis_data-logger_to_store_weather_data_depending_on_the_chosen_sampling_interval

I have my sampling interval and data logger set to 5 minutes.  That means if WeatherCat or my computer are disabled, I can go for almost 9 days before I would lose any data.  With the speed of commerce, I would hope that's enough time to make whatever repairs or replacements are necessary.

Cheers, Edouard

Dear X-Air, Blick, Reinhard, and WeatherCat fans with a sense of humor - I think?  ???

Maybe the next version of WC will feature multiple-camera support! [lol] cmu:-)

 [tup] [tup] [tup]

 [wink] . . . . . . But, but, but, . . . . I think X-Air meant that as a joke! . . . .  [biggrin]

Meanwhile, I'll probably dial back the fade to 70%... at least until the grass starts to really grow! :P

 [wink] . . .  Never mind that!!  Will somebody please find the setting in WeatherCat that controls how fast the grass grow? . . . Today's high was 57.8˚ F (14.3˚ C).  However by the weekend, the highs are supposed to be 76˚ F (24.4˚ C) and I know what the grass is going to start doing!  I don't even have fresh gas for the lawn mower! . . . . .
. . . . .  lol(1)
