Re: Potentially, a special period of weather closing in..

I was getting sceptical about this cooling off period because the BBC Weather people were talking about temps dropping down towards the end of this week. And daytime temps of 3-5C aren't anything unusual. But it's next week (Monday onwards) where daytime maxima for this area are forecast to hardly r...

Re: WH3081 weather station pressure setting

Pressure is determined by the console. if it's not changing then I suspect a fault remains. No way will pressure not vary, even by small amounts.

You could use the Wunderground map to check pressure on nearby stations and use that to convince your supplier a problem exists.

Re: Dayfile.txt Lost

Thanks again Steve. Would you agree the rain rate reading of 1645.8 mm/hr at 0208 on the 23 November is wrong? If so, what is the best way for me to correct it, please? Thanks, Chris If you lived in the tropics I’d accept that’s a possible reading. But in nearly nine years my highest is 10.75”/hr. ...

Re: 123-reg ripping me off for domain renewal

Roger, I did renew for 2 years. I probably won't get anywhere with them but venting my spleen at them makes me feel better. I'll look at any offers in 2020.

Re: 123-reg ripping me off for domain renewal

I had a reply from 123-reg about the price increase which was a load of bullsh**. They said "the Registry had increased the prices". Who is the Registry? Probably Nominet as described in this article... http://www.wired.co.uk/article/nominet-uk-domains-price-rise The article states the ave...

Re: 123-reg ripping me off for domain renewal

Steve & Simon, Thank you both. It seems GoDaddy has control of the market. Agreed I could take advantage of the 99p for first year offer but having just paid for 2 years this is probably a discussion I need to come back to in 22 months or so. In the big picture it's not a huge amount for my webs...

Re: 123-reg ripping me off for domain renewal

No reply from 123 reg this morning. I'm reluctant to change my site domain. I may have to bite the bullet on this but will certainly investigate my options in 22 months time.

Re: 123-reg ripping me off for domain renewal

Hi Paul,

I did as you suggested and the price I'm quoted is £48.99 + commission. God knows how much commission is.

I'll wait to hear from 123reg. Hopefully they'll reconsider the amount. It's tant amount to blackmail and totally unacceptable.

123-reg ripping me off for domain renewal

I've had my domain name registered with 123reg.co.uk since 2009. Each two years they've charged me around £8 for a two year renewal. This time it's gone up to £26.98. Needless to say I'm very unimpressed with them and have sent a complaint pointing out it's a private site, not a business one and pro...

I think the Vue was built for the interested amateur as opposed to the VP2 which is aimed more at the enthusiastic amateur. No water ingress into either of my transmitters and I live near Manchester :D

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

Davis Vantage Pro 2. Here's my history... 1) Purchased VP2 with additional wireless anemometer transmitter in April 2009. 2) First failure of anemometer in December 2013 when cups broke in a 52mph gust. Replacements provided FOC but new anemometer purchased for continuity of records. Original kept a...

Re: UK Unnamed storm 17/18 Jan 2018 impact

I've changed the title of this thread.

Pressure bottomed out at 982.6hPa at 02:58 and the highest gust was 45mph at 03:15.

Pressure dropped 21hPa in 10 hours. Quite something when 24hPa in 24hrs is considered a 'bomb' :D

Re: TNETweather (Kevin Reed) has passed away

Very sad news. I'm indebted to Kevin for providing the PSS script for my banner. Without his knowledge and skill it wouldn't exist.

He was very good at what he did and helped an awful lot of weather nuts like me. His family should be proud of him.

Thank you Kevin. :clap:
