USB Webcam causing Cumulus 1 to disconnect!

For some time (over a year) I've been having to live with Cumulus dropping out randomly. I've just, curse, and restarted it in the past, as there was no data loss. This would happen sometimes two or three times daily. Last week I disconnected the webcam as I was as moving it. I have not got around t...

Re: Cumulus 'Freezing'

Thanks for responding so swiftly Steve. I'll leave you to enjoy your holiday for the time being, as I am trying it with another W10 laptop I have. I copied the cumulus directory to the 'new' machine and it has run without fault since 8.00am this morning.

Cumulus 'Freezing'

I'm using Cumulus 1.9.6 Build 1099 with an Oregon WMR200 on a computer running Windows 10, and am suffering an increasingly frustrating random problem of Cumulus 'freezing' for no apparent reason. I have to close it with Task Manager and restart. I have tried re-installing Cumulus but that doesn't s...

Re: Rain Record: "Houston we have a problem"

Just a quick update, and to thank Steve for his ever helpful advice,, allowing me to home in on the issue. Giving the internals of the gauge a thorough clean seems to have solved the the problem. Hope my 'donation' has arrived!

Re: Rain Record: "Houston we have a problem"

Thanks Steve. Just had time to demount it, open it, shoo out a spider but nothing obvious mechanically. Accidentally dropped it on the grass, and it registered 3.3mm of rain. So it looks like. the link is sound.

Heavy cloud here and no rain, so it is wait and see!

Re: Rain Record: "Houston we have a problem"

Sorry for the delay in following up this issue. Rather busy at the moment! Anyway I've taken a further look and managed to get a more recent backup installed so I only lost one day's data. It looks very much like a WRM200 issue rather than anything to do with Cumulus! The console is not showing any ...

Your profile says Fine Offset, but this is the Oregon Scientific section. Your screenshot does imply an Oregon, so assuming you have other outside data, the most lik...
