Re: UV and Solar graphs uploads

Paul, there are ‘solar’ and ‘UV’ checkboxes on the ‘files’ tab, which I think have the effect you’re looking for.

Re: Unhandeled Exception Help Please

It looks like the connection to the console was lost. Is your IP logger uploading to weatherlink.com? The logger can only handle one connection at a time, which is why Cumulus has the ‘periodic disconnect’ setting, in an attempt to work around this.

That may be the problem, but I don’t know how you would reinstate it, sorry.

Perhaps the tokens encode some information about the installation, I don’t really know.

It’s very difficult to do the check as the size that Cumulus sends does not necessarily correspond to the size that Twitter ends up with.

Re: New Station - Cumulus not reading?

Unlikely in the near future. I was actually in discussion with Tycon quite some time ago about adding support. They sent me some information about the protocol, which wasn’t actually any use. I told them what I needed, and they said they would get back to me. I heard nothing for a long time, and the...

Re: Davis data blocks not downloading

You have Cumulus logging at 10 minute intervals and your station logging at 30 minute intervals. The first thing you need to do is to set them to the same interval. Perhaps your station was reset to the default (I think that’s 30 minutes)

Re: Windows 7 64 bit madness

For now, the situation is the same as it has been - I’m looking at the forum regularly and helping out where I can as time permits. A lot of my time at the moment is taken up with becoming a resident here - French bureaucracy takes quite a bit of fathoming :lol:

The only thing I can think of is that antivirus software is deleting the .exe file, believing it to contain a virus.

Re: JSON time stamps exactly three years out

My guess would be that in editing the data file(sj you have changed the format of the dates from the expected format (dd/mm/yy), possibly as a result of using something like Excel to do the editing.
