Re: Sunrise etc time wrong

Windoze time is nothing like astral time - be absolutely useless for calculating Sun, Moon etc. As a starting point it is ideal (and works) for someone who doesn't have, or know, their exact location. But I'm sure you can speak for steve in telling everyone standard time zones are absolutely useles...

Re: Cumulus and NAS

Thank you Alan, but my living room is already like a NASA operating room, i can't ask to my wife to accept more "electronic stuff" :D You shouldn't have to add anything more. Most modern (read 3-4 years old) screens have dual inpouts - either DSUB and DV and/or HDMI. Netbooks usually only...

Re: USB to Serial device -- solution

The adapter works on an FDTI CHIPSET and gave no problems instaling and getting it to find my data logger. So I was very happy with the product. The stupid thing that I found is that the new motherboards don't even have connections on the board to put a 9 pin comport on the motherboard, it sems tha...

Re: USB to Serial device -- solution

What you have bought, though, is a USB to Serial converter. As mentioned before many motherboards already have a serial 'header' on the mother board - specialist computer shops usually stock these header cables to enable you to connect the serial port up. BUT the header needs to be enabled in the BI...

Re: Internal Server Error

Graeme, You're correct about the 'wording' of this error - it is a real PITA because it implies it is something on or in the server causing an issue which, I guess, is the case, but it isn't obviously the case all the time! The only (helpful) suggestion I can make to anyone writing or modifying thei...

Re: Orbit: Earth's Extraordinary Journey

Having now watched the first two episodes of this 3 part series I have to say <yawn> it suffers greatly from the 'American Disease' - in that over two hours (so far) all the worlds weather is generated by, and dependant upon, the northern hemisphere. There are two verbal mentions that the southern h...

Re: Internal Server Error

The internal server error howeer is being gewnerated by the CYtags.php file (try accessing it and you will see what I mean). Using cutags.php generates a 'file not found error' as would be expected; using CUtags.php (note capitalisation) generates the internal server error - this indicates the file ...

Re: Internal Server Error

Sorry oh great one!

Re: Internal Server Error

A 500 Internal Server Error usually (99% of the time) indicates a problem with the construction of the PHP file you are trying to load - in this case the CUtags.php file. It generally has nothing to do with permissions or 'htaccess thing'.... You need to thoroughly check your syntax - it could be as...

Re: Console location

1 of my few technical observer mates said the Bureau of Met readings are taken from inside air conditioned buildings so in effect the same deal here, I'm not so worried about it now as I think it was temperature anomalies on the black plastic back of the unit creating these issues. Correct - but re...

Re: Console location

As Graeme says - location for pressure won't affect your readings as much as temperature, rainfall, wind etc. Pressure is one of the few meteorological conditions that is relatively even over a large area. Mine, for example, is located under the house (I'm not too concerned with the console's temper...
