Mine was also US$34.25 via PayPal on Saturday and is worth every penny. Thanks Stu.

Thanks for the laugh. By the way, 20 LBS in the US is 9.07 kg elsewhere.

Howdy Blick, Stu, and WeatherCat . . . . weightlifters . . . .  ;D

Thanks for the laugh. By the way, 20 LBS in the US is 9.07 kg elsewhere.

Do ya' suppose that perhaps Stu is into . . . . . heavy metal!!! . . . . . . .

Lol, if you really want to know, check out the end of the credits on the last page of the manual.

Well I guess that answers that question. We should be learning by now that we should always check the manual first.

Awesome news... the ability to track snow is reason enough for the upgrade.  Look forward to upgrading soon!

Thanks Stu

Good to hear that, Steve. I'll probably switch the Mac mini that runs my weather software over to Yosemite this weekend now that I know the WeatherLinkIP software problem was solved before the public release.

Felix, I believe the data logger that required a driver update for Yosemite compatibility was the USB logger. The IP data logger does not use a driver and should be good to go.

You're absolutely correct, Blick! Appears I misinterpreted Stu's post on the following thread:

http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=1386.0

As you pointed out, he was talking about a data logger problem.

Hi Steve, Blick, Felix and WeatherCat fans,

Felix, I believe the data logger that required a driver update for Yosemite compatibility was the USB logger.

Actually, Stu discovered that the problem with the Silicon Labs driver was an Apple bug in OS 10.10, not in the driver.  It was fixed before Yosemite was released.  See this posting:
