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.

Edit: It's so wet here that my keyboard's keys slipped a bit; the "H" slid to where the "G" was... cmu:-)
