WxSim / Re: WxSim Results Update
« Last post by hrvistaweather on Today at 04:46:11 AM »
Hi Tom,
Regards our email content recently, being I was 0.1c over/under on forecast vs Actual which happens a lot.

Thought it would be worth showing you the following:

Australia Bureau of Meterology:
Today they Forecast 26c for Franklin (my town) with their new MetEye Forecast still in Beta mode since 2011 :-)

WU Forecast:
Today they Forecast 32c for Franklin (my town)

WXSIM:
Today we Forecast with WxSim 29c and thus far max is 28.9c

Great Stuff,
Regards,

WD for Linux / Re: new version of WD linux , similar to WD Mac version
« Last post by GrantK on Today at 03:49:01 AM »
if you want it to be exactly like the windows version then I cant help you

the data extraction should work though, I will do some testing here
Thanks Brian, understood.  The Data Extraction is the most important thing so I look forward to testing a new version when you have it ready.

 it could be a web file

that is where I would start looking..

WD for Linux / Re: new version of WD linux , similar to WD Mac version

... continued from last post.
7)  WD restarted normally and I continued my setup, duplicating settings from my Windows installation.
8 )  Noticed that 'Gust Needle Colour' button in Universal Setup doesn't work.
9)  Enabled 'Display Windrun on Main Screen' and noticed that it overwrites Solar and UV, which is disappointing (see attachment).  The Windows version can show both.

Apart from the Data Logger issue, these faults are pretty minor.

Brian:  This is an excellent improvement to the WD family and I am very grateful for your efforts.
If these things can be fixed I will register my Linux copy and pay the appropriate fee.

WD for Linux / Re: new version of WD linux , similar to WD Mac version

... continued from last post.
5)  WD wouldn't run after aborting the Data Logger Extraction window so I exited, to find a large number of error messages waiting for me in the terminal window (see attachment).
6)  Restarted WD and disabled Data Logging so I could continue my testing.
... continued in next post.

I'm very pleased to report that WD for Linux is mostly working on my Intel NUC with a couple of minor bugs noticed and an issue with the data logger.
Starting from the beginning:

1)  I confirmed that my FTDI USB to RS-232 converter was being recognised by Ubuntu and /dev/ttyUSB0 is present.
2)  Started WD and was very pleased to see that polling started immediately with good data packets being received and the data counter incrementing.
3)  Then enabled data logging and restarted WD.
4)  It was here that things started to go off the rails a bit and the 'Davis VP History Data Extraction' window never did anything, just staying there until I clicked 'Abort'.  See attachment for screen shot.
... continued in next post.

I did reboot it a lot of times. was keeping crashing. So I moved the directory to an extra computer that I have. It was doing it on that one also. Till I removed all the saved data files that are in the datafiles directory. now it is working on the extra computer that I have. But that one now has no saved data.

yes, everything default (i.e like WD starting up new, no settings)
