Not running macOS, or even Windows, of course... lol(1)

And the IT Department plans on replacing things in April! "We didn't built/buy it, so it must be replaced! [computer] Don't confuse us with this 'uptime' thing! If we don't have 'downtime', how do we justify our employment?!" [banghead]

When I worked for Tandem Computers years ago there were NonStop systems that had been running for around 20 years. How much longer they went on I have no idea.

I've put a reminder on my calendar on April 2041 to check on how things are working out for the "new" equipment. Probably should wait until the middle of the month or they'll think it's an April Fool's prank! ;)

Anyone used the Security Update 2018-001 for macOS 10.12 Sierra? I've only got 14 days, 17 hrs, 20 mins since my last Restart of the WC mini. [banghead] It's looks like I may never beat the record for continuous uptime for WC... [rolleyes2]

Are the gauges working on your websites with Sierra installed? If you don't have one, might you add one and see?

I can't currently upgrade beyond El Capitan because the gauges don't work in WC on the website with Sierra or with High, Higher, Highest Sierra.

THANKS!

They seem to all be working. But it is possible to pull up the page just as WC is uploading new data and discover that a gauge may be missing until the updating finishes. My hosting server must be deleting images before accepting replacements? :o You can view mine at: http://mid-southweather.com/gauges.html

Sorry to hijack the thread - but thanks for that xAir. Gauges look great! I may need to try an upgrade here soon and see how it goes. Thanks,

My bad! Furst mizsteak uv thee yeer? [computer] I forgot that the mini running WC is actually still using El Capitan! I'm still using macOS 10.12 Sierra, so my answer about Gauges working on 10.6 are worthless! :blush: [blush] [banghead]

[banghead] Only made it to 36+ days. There's another Restart-Required Security Update out... But I'd probably complain if I got hung with a new rope! cmu:-)

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat endurance seekers,

[banghead] Only made it to 36+ days.

That's nothing to complain about these days.  With my general use Mac, I'm struggling to go 7 days before I have to reboot.  If you leave your Mac alone and just run WeatherCat, you can probably go for many months.  However, even that might depend on how many custom graphs, gauges, and CTWs you have deployed.

So take some satisfaction in getting 36 days!  [tup]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
