I removed (commented out) a line in the htaccess file that had been there for a couple of years. My site now appears to be back to normal with all images displaying properly. Since that occurred at exactly the time I changed the htaccess file, I am 99% sure that is the cause and not something changed by the "support" folks at Hostgator...

That also seems to have re-established the WC banner image here. [cheer]

It will be a very cold day in Hades before I try SSL again, even if it is free and auto re-newing! [banghead]
Weather Hardware/Measurement / Got the same problem. (Re: Editing Statistics )
« Last post by elagache on May 19, 2019, 11:43:12 PM »
Dear Randall and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

I just notice in my Statistics that my Sunniest day on record: Feb 5, 2014 with 23.6 hours of sunshine.
How do I edit this

I have exactly the same sort of weird data in my WeatherCat database.  Blick found it a while back and mentioned it on this thread:

At the time, I couldn't find any way to correct it.  I think we'll need Stu to take a look at this one.  For now all we can do is ignore it.

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard

Dear Jenna, Blick, Phillip and WeatherCat sys-admins

I don't know how I missed these postings earlier this month but I did.

WOW! Here is mine for a measly three days running....FWIW.

I think what you are observing Jenna is normal behavior for WeatherCat.  It needs a certain amount of memory to get all processes started.  The concern is how much the memory use grows over time.  Stu has done a good job of keeping WeatherCat from increasing its memory use, but macOS isn't so misery.

Hey Edouard! I see that you are a fellow SpamSiever. I have been using that for years and its accuracy at spam filtering is phenomenal.

I use Spamsieve as well. Works great!

Yes, I'm a very longtime user of SpamSieve.  So much so that I ended up choosing my current email client (Postbox) because I could import my old mail and still use SpamSieve.   My biggest problem with Spam is with the crude filtering tools run by Apple, Yahoo, and so on.  Periodically, I need to log into the web mail interface and rescue all the advertisements that the big companies think are spam and I don't!

Apple - leave my "Original Part's Group" ads alone! 

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

WeatherCat Feature Requests / Re: Support for the new API
« Last post by xairbusdriver on May 19, 2019, 07:34:07 PM »
As I understand the info on the linked "API" page, here is what a snapshot of the JASON file would look like from my site. I have selected only the data and the formats I have set in WC, btw.
{"stations":[{"station":"0","name": "My Home Station","lat": "48.2","lon": "28.6","altitude": "80","agl_temp": "2","agl_wind": "10"
"observations":[{"station":"0","dateutc": "2019-03-15T06:15:34","tempf": "74.4","windspeedmph": "1","winddir": "209","windgustmph": "0","rh": "83","baromin": "29.82","rainin": "0.82"
Further, since I have but one 'station', I can leave out the "station":"0" part. I will to check the date format to make sure I either have the desired one or if I need to convert what WC creates.

Can some one confirm my comment, so far?

I think it should be fairly easy to have WC parse an 'additional file' every 5 minutes and either upload it to my web space or just create a text file on the boot drive. It should then be easy to create a daemon/script to upload that file to Windy from either location.

I use Spamsieve as well. Works great!
I wish there was an app or program for  Mac that would poll the weather station and send data to for both atmospheric AND soil station. sends only the atmospheric data and so far is reluctant to send in the soil moisture data.   

I have not the programming skills but it would be nice to have the software that would take the data from the Davis station and send it to  Globe.  Weatherdisplay had it for a while, but as the program became bigger with many lines of code,  and seemed that I was the only person who sent data, that routine was discontinued.  I fully understood.

However, it would be nice if someone could figure that out.

Slowly and erratically returning to normal. [rolleyes2] I've removed any hint of https from the htaccess. >:( Wx maps/sites now working on index.html. NWS alert(s) now have the little icon. Graphs and Gauges still not visible. [banghead]

Hostgator seems to have elevated my concern to higher level and I think I have a ticket number. Unfortunately, they have made major site/UI changes and I can no longer find a page with support ticket history and/or status. I have no idea what they are doing as they have not bothered to acknowledge anything by emailed [rolleyes2].

The SSL "Status" still shows "Pending" and the "Enable" button is not active meaning I cannot click it to OFF! And since there is a support ticket, "Chat" contacts claim they cannot touch my site. [banghead] Seriously looking like an early hosting move approaching... [rockon]

Fortunately, WC is rock solid, of course! ThU5:-)
