This is the entire file. Apparently does a day at a time and then the pieces on the fly.

Thanks.

Using new WD I did another download (snip attached). Then did a convert log to data. That gave me 2 files - month62010.inf and month62010direction3.inf. Steps from here?

New download window is missing the convert buttons, etc. Has just the download area on the right side. Just for testing I suspect?

Thanks.

its all automatic
the conversion is done
thats why there is a .inf data file
you should see data after selecting that converted month under view ,av/ext

when I do it here, I get each day being downloaded and adding to the data in the window (which scrolls)
once that has finished you should have a logfile with all the data in it for the whole month
and that logfile us converted to data file at the end

there is a problem though where wunderground must use cookies...it downloads as metric for me (and so it works for me by ticking metric)
but it must be downloading as non metric for you

what I could do is add another function to convert that downloaded data (force a convert) (the wudownloaddata.txt file)
the other issue is irrregular time stamps periods in your wunderground data...not easy to pad it out to nice 1 minute interval

Downloading the data works as you described above.

My first 'missing' month of data from WU contains 87,343 lines in 62010lg.txt! What appears to be good data uploaded every 5 minutes (but not always exactly on the '5') is on WU for 30 days, but that's not the way it shown in the attached - only 18 days and funky numbers with a lot missing. I can zip and email you the lg.txt if you like.

Thanks for the extra work on this - most appreciated.

there are a few problems:
it looks like WD is getting confused between metric and non metric data
the other problem is with the padding out of the data....the logfile is ending up with too many data lines...and so when its converted to the data file, you end up with the missing days
(I did not have this problem with my own data import though)

should be OK now, new update:
http://www.weather-display.com/downloadfiles/weatherdisplaytest.zip

(one of the other problems was your data update interval changed around alot...now WD auto detects that)

OK, looks much better now. Don't think I had the solar/uv installed at that time which is why those are all 0 (except the first line).

Sorry, but have to ask - what exactly is/are the next step(s) to get this into the site; e.g. what gets created/uploaded? It's been years since I did this manually and the details are gone.

Thanks very much, Brian. This will let me fill in 32 missing months in 9 1/2 years of data.

WHOOPIE!!

Did 62010 and 72010 (nice job on the video, BTW). Everything worked except my site still showed data missing. Dug into the scripts and found it also wanted climatedataout. Figured out how to generate that and now I have 2 missing months down and only 30 to go.

I know - I should know how to do all this. Age...

Thanks again for all your extra help and setting up this new feature.
