What is the date format in your today.ini?

[General]
Date=01/18/2015
Timestamp=01/19/2015 06:50:00
CurrentYear=2015
CurrentMonth=1
CurrentDay=18


Part of dayfile.txt: 05/01/15,6.1,225,08:29,0.0,08:45

Part of Month.ini:
[General]
Date=01/18/2015 00:00:00


Part of Alltime.ini:
[Temperature]
hightempvalue=12
hightemptime=01/10/2015 11:45:56
lowtempvalue=0



In the Wiki example for today.ini I see:
[General]
Date=29/09/2012
Timestamp=29/09/2012 11:50:00
CurrentYear=2012
CurrentMonth=9
CurrentDay=13


Should I swap day and month in Date and Timestamp of today.ini?
(And will this affect historical data?)

BTW: From the very first beta, I never used the -lang parameter. I started this beta without any (Cumulus1) data. I did not change the RPI Raspbian locale en_GB.UTF8 UTF8 either.

Your dates are in US format, so you can't use the data files when using UK settings. All of the .ini data files will be the same.

Thanks. I will stick with US then.
As a test:
I will do a clean install of 3010 without the -lang, just to see what date format is used. And after that, copy my data and run CMX without and with the -lang US parameter. And post the results of course ...

About locales, just to let you know (tested with 3010):
Clean new install: Without –lang: Invariant language
Clean new install: With –lang en-GB: English (United Kingdom)

With my existing data, I started with 3002, not specifying the –lang parameter, no previous data / settings from Cumulus1:
Without -lang: Invariant language
With –lang en-US: English (United States)

Re-reading your announcement post, that’s exactly what you wrote. I should have read better ....
