WeatherCat iOS Clients / Re: WeatherCatRCP 1.1 (180928) for iOS Beta
« Last post by Blicj11 on November 08, 2018, 05:40:33 AM »
Grand:

I haven't been able to get any data on RCP 1.1 for a couple of days now. It is "Unable to Verify Server." I can connect to Trixology-eng.com but not to my Local network, nor to my external IP address. I have tried restarting WC 3.0.3 Build 8, deleting the RCP 1.1 app and reinstalling it from TestFlight, and restarting my iPhone. I verified that port 49255 is still mapped to my iMac that is running WeatherCat.

What should I try next?

Thank you for straightening us all out on that point
You are most welcome. It's the least I could do, and I always to the least I can. :P

couldn't the government commission some studies and simply answer this question in a definitive way?
I thought you were against wasteful spending! You very remark about the wording on the ballot question is a purfekt example of what too many government agency's give us. That's my opinion, anyway. And, like Blick, I'm sticking with it, no matter the facts (nor the English lessons)! cmu:-)

I'm just glad I we don't have the task of resetting Stonehenge twice a year! [banghead]

Glad you're back to collecting Wx data! I was a bit confused by the dialog you got mentioning Bluetooth, there are no BT connections to WC or Davis hardware that I know of! Nor is there any mention of it when I searched the Manual. [computer]

I have been running a Davis Vantage Due with the Weather Link Data Logger for about years at this location. The HD on my MAC died last week, requiring a new setup.
That's probably where the driver you'd been using went; it's still on that dead drive. [banghead] Not sure how long you've been running WC, but it's easy to forget things like that driver which you never really interact with. At my age I often forget...
what was the question?  [rolleyes2] [blush]
That's a big reason why this forum is so useful! ThU32:-)

Glad you are up and running! Not only do you need a driver for that logger, but you likely need to make sure you have the latest vision of that driver as you upgrade your macOS going forward. The only Davis logger that doesn't need a driver is their WeatherLinkIPô Data Logger.

Dear Steve, Blick, X-Air, and WeatherCat ponderers of the future,

Yes I voted for the California proposition that passed.  Alas I didn't know that it included an advisory clause asking the California Legislature to switch to year around daylight savings if the Feds will allow it.  Had I known this I would have voted against it.

What to me is utterly heartbreaking is that for all this debate - nobody seems interested in the truly important question: Does daylight savings increase or decrease energy consumption?

Instead of all this political battling, couldn't the government commission some studies and simply answer this question in a definitive way?  It should be relatively easy to compare Phoenix and Los Angeles to generate all the data needed to answer this question once and for all.

Science and technology, even Philosophy and other academic pursuits, can serve our civilization, but only if we seek the knowledge to be found there and examine what is offered critically.  We are at a time of horrible emotional and political divides driven by ignorance all round.  It is extremely foolish to suppose that simple-minded solutions can work in complex society where so many things are interdependent.  Whatever the problem, the issue isn't trying to think outside of the box, but becoming very clearly focused on what precisely is the problem needing to be solved.  I'm fear that if we all could get our heads around the totality of issues we are facing - there would be agreement - on the desperately difficult circumstances we find ourselves in.

Dear McQ, Blick, and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

I didn't expect to have to install any drivers for a program that is written for the Mac OS, but I don't mind.  I wish there had been some such instruction. There was no such mention in the error message when it didn't find the Vantage Vue.
It seems to be running just fine and now I just need to get my WU and CWOP accounts up to date.

I'm glad that you were able to solve your problem.  Just to set the record straight, the WeatherCat manual does mention the need for drivers for Davis stations.  You'll find that information on page 19 of the current WeatherCat manual.  It is an extensive manual, but well worth going though because of all the excellent information contained there-in.

Cheers, Edouard

Thanks for the reply.   [computer]
I saw someone had a problem transmitting to WU and was reading their post. They mentioned that WeatheSnoop worked, so I decided to download WS to try it. When I tried to run it, there was a message that its needed a USB driver (and gave the link) so I downloaded that. After installing the driver, I decided to try WC and lo and behold, there was a new USB port available and it worked!

This is probably not helpful, but have you tried a power recycle as described here?

I know that situation was different from yours but it might be worth a try whilst we are waiting for Edouard to login this afternoon.

A majority can not be used to prove the veracity of a theory, nor to change a statement into a fact. A majority is not the same as being correct.

Thank you for straightening us all out on that point, but in this case, the majority were correct, if for no other reason than they agreed with me. If there is one thing in this world about which I know more than any other person, it is my opinion, about which I am an expert.

Please note my ability to end clauses and sentence without a preposition as proof I paid attention in high school English classes. But enough about me, let's get rid of changing our clocks twice a year.
