Re: WindowsPC vs RPi: Starting CumulusMX on Reboot

I use the Task Scheduler to create time lapse videos from stills thruout the day using FFMPG, and was considering that approach. I am worried that I would need to log into the machine for the TAsk scheduler to run...is that not the case? So even if the machine just reboots with no one around to log...

Re: WU-forecast.php

Ken, I was wondering if you could help me figure out any way of scripting this issue. as we know WU Forecasts have been flakey for a while. I have some script to delete (unlink) the cache file if it is 0 bytes in size. when forecasts from WU come down the cache file is usually over 20kb in size, so ...

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

Still seeing missing entries of my site on WU. Another 35 of 5 minute uploads are not on WU with often 2 entries missing in a row and once it was 3 missing in a row. I only had two instances of this error: I think WU are screwed at the moment. my webcam picture (image.jpg) is uploaded every 2 minut...

Re: Windows 10 Drivers Problems

Tried all the sockets, and also a usb hub. Reset the console, but it works on another machine, using the different version of the driver files. Uninstall the updates, but this did nothing. Tried a systems restore, but this failed because of an AV issue. the only other thing I can suggest is when yo...

Re: Windows 10 Drivers Problems

have you tried a different USB socket, or resetting your console?

or rollback the update if you really think this is the issue.

Re: WXQUAKES PROBLEM??

Of course I can follow the link to USGS and there is a map that displays there.

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

I've run about 36 hours without a burp in diags, or that I can see on WU, and at some point my webcam is back.
