Re: Unable to create SQL dayfile table

I'm assuming that you're accessing a db on a remote webserver and you can access the db via the control panel. The error message seems more like a credential problem.
If so, are you sure 'localhost' is correct as hostname and not something like 'db1234.1and1.com'?

Re: A question about wind chill

It's always described as an 'indicator' as to the effects of wind at low temps and varies depending on sunshine too, so seems fairly imprecise to start with. I think it is primarily for use in regions where temperatures are less than -10 and where the wind is probably more linear. Extract (part) fro...

Re: Sparklines

You don't need a full cumuluswebtags.txt there is sparklines_tags.txt in the zipped file purely for Sparklines.
The Readme explains how to use it with Cumulus.

Sparklines

I know this has been done before but..... I have been in conversation with several people regarding 'Sparklines' recently. I have been using them for quite a few years with phpwebtags and decided to simplify my scripts and make them available. The main proviso is I am not a skilled scripter and I'm ...

Re: help

To get that effect ( and I have no idea if this is the 'best' way to do it ) I created two sets of variables using webtags <!-- Temp --> var temp = [2.1,1.8,1.3,1.2,1.5,2,2,2.2,2,2,2.2,2.5,2.3]; var temptime = ['05.15','05.45','06.15','06.45','07.15','07.45','08.15','08.45','09.15','09.45','10.15','...

I have some domains with 123-reg and they're currently asking £19.98 for two years renewal.(£99.0 for 10 years - so no saving there!)

Re: what station I think i've tried the lot

FWIW...... I've had an Instromet station since 1995. I'm on my second anemometer, temp sensor and solar sensor. The display (electromechanical) is still fine and only downside is that it is cabled. Logger runs 24/7 for months with no problems. Davis VP2 with remote anemometer and soil sensors has be...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Just a thought - are dayfile delimiters correctly set? As I see dates are 03-07-17

Code: Select all

$field_delimiter = ',';
$date_delimiter = '-';

Re: Davis anemometer cups not moving in light wind

In any case shouldn't they use stainless steel if this is critical?

I agree stainless would be better especially considering there is virtually no load on them. Expense?
The Davis bearings will probably be a 20p stock item from China.
