Hello From Scotland
« on: February 26, 2018, 04:25:17 PM »
Hi All,
I have the Davis Vantage Vue and data logger for mac on order - this will be my first steps into weather watching (other than following generalised weather forecasts on the TV and / or looking out the window and guessing what the local weather will do next).
My home computers and tablets  are all Mac devices and running the latest versions of IOS or High Sierra. While waiting for my kit to arrive I have been reading the forums and now know there are compatability issues with High Sierra. I'll post my questions directly into the appropriate forums.
Regards ... Alastair

Hello Alastair,
welcome to the forum! I am running HighSierra latest version and WeatherCat V3 public beta and cannot complain about any issues.
Cheers,
Reinhard

Welcome to the forum Alistair! As Reinhard says, the latest release of WC 3 beta is a 64-bit app that is High Sierra compatible.

In other news, great win for Scotland in Six Nations last weekend!

Thanks Reinhard, great to know you are up and running on High Sierra. One question though, and I expect the answer will be yes, were you running WC prior to upgrading your OS? From my research, it seems the driver issue only ocurrs with newbies like me who are installing WC (or more correctly, the Silicon Labs driver) for the first time in High Sierra. Then the new security 'features' of HS kick in to block the driver. Hmmm...!

Hi Blick,
Thanks for the welcome. Yes, the rugby last weekend was superb.For a small country like Scotland, winning anything always feels good, but beating both England and France on consecutive weekends is a real morale booster for this proud nation.

Welcome AboaRd, Alastair! Always great to have some input from the other side of the Pond! Hope you've avoided too much of the snow apparently coming from the east!

Hi xairbusdriver,
Thanks for the welcome.
Not much snow so far today in my north west corner of the UK. England though has had a few snowflakes fall on London and the south east - and it's headline news. Must be a snow news day!
