Re: Questions about wind readings

Mark, thanks for your comments and it looks like I am there. I have a lot of extra variables and lists in the background for calculations and sometimes for graphs. I try to keep to the names on your Wiki but there are probably some that are not being used anymore and I have been doing some housekeep...

Re: My home brew system

Hi Bob, Good to see I'm not alone in using electronics to keep the grey matter ticking over. You haven't made the mistake I and many others made when we started with a Raspberry by expecting too much from it. Hi Lloyd- For my part, the loss of technical skill is more the result of increasing managem...

Re: My home brew system

I am on the other side of the globe from you, but do have a son and twin grandsons who now live in Brisbane. Who knows, maybe we'll meet some day... I know that feeling of distance, my son lives in the U.K. in South Wales. A great start Lloyd, and I'm glad you were inspired by the gauges to get sta...

My home brew system

A little about myself. I am 72 and retired from a lifetime working in Electronics and IT, I enjoyed my work and it was also my hobby but my world came crashing down in 2005 when I had a work related breakdown that did a lot of damage and left me on a disability pension. After that things got a lot w...

Re: My Pi3 Experiment

Mark, are you and any others who use a Raspberry aware of this https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/linux-malware-mines-for-cryptocurrency-using-raspberry-pi-devices/. It doesn't appear to do any real damage, just steals CPU cycles and looks for Raspberries on the internet which still have...

Questions about the rain fields in realtimegauges.txt

My first post. I started last year building a weather station from scratch, the only already built components I intend purchasing are a rain gauge and anemometer/wind direction. I am not using Cumulus but I am using the SteelSeries Gauges and I am hoping to have something live in the next month or s...
