Re: Cumulus MX (Cumulus 3) beta test

Steve,

I have some spare time coming up so would like to contribute to your beta testing of Cumulus MX.

Will be running Windows 7 and a Fine Offset WH3081.

How to run one page with Wind Rose & Solar and one without

I have been successfully running SteelSeries for some time and am very happy with them (thanks Mark). I am looking forward to the Cloud base gauge. I decided that I would create a page optimised for my Galaxy S4 so set about removing gauges and reformatting so they would fit nicely. I then discovere...

Should dew be recorded as rainfall

I have just made some modifications to my rain gauge increasing the resolution from 0.5mm to 0.1mm. I have tested and seem to record accuratly. My problem is that for the last two morings I have recorded 0.1mm of dew. Should dew be recorded as rainfall? If not what do others do about this problem? G...

Accuracy of a WH3081

I am considering buying a model WH3081. I am reading conflicting specifications for this model. Can anybody who owns one tell me what the accuracy of the humidity and rain sensors are?

Re: Using LEDs to indicate thresholds past

Thanks gwheelo, I now have three gauges working with userLEDs (Temperature, Humidity and Wind). Your code was easy enough to follow. I am happy to share what I have done but is basicly the same as your code. I am always thankful to Marks for his work. These gauges are by far the most elegant way to ...

Using LEDs to indicate thresholds past

There has already been some discussion about the use of LEDs but I didn't understand what was being discussed (only being a very amateur programmer). I have noticed that there is now a userLED feature. Can anybody explain what this is about and how it works? What I want to do is have a LED light up ...

Re: Problem with the width of the Forecast and Countdown LCD

Thanks Mark,

I will check that.

I am a little confused though. When I upgraded to v2.2.2 I replaced all the associated files. How did I miss the latest version of the library?

Re: Problem with the width of the Forecast and Countdown LCD

Thanks Ray,

That has certainly fixed the problem but it will break the next time I upgrade.

We will see what Mark has to say.

Re: Problem with the width of the Forecast and Countdown LCD

You might want to give a bit more width to the 'canvas_status' than the 50 pixels you have assigned it - start with 300 pixels and move up until you are satisfied with the width of the forecast/status gauge. Sorry Ray, The 50 pixel is a hangover from my testing. I have set it back to 550 px and it ...

Problem with the width of the Forecast and Countdown LCDs

I have just upgraded to version 2.2.2 from 2.0.1. After some fiddling I have everything working (i really like the new Wind Rose by the way). My problem is that I can't control the width and height of the Forecast and Countdown LCDs in my webpage. This used to be done through the gauges.js file. I n...

Re: Cumulus Locking Up

An update on this problem.

I disable the APRS/CWOP upload because this seemed to be the last thing in the log when Cumulus froze.

The problem is much reduced but not totally gone. I still get the occasional lockup.
