I know I was running WD a few months before that as I didn't know there was a website dedicated to WD  :wink:

Still the best program for capturing weather data...thanks Brian...
WD Questions / Datain38.ini file and specifics in its use
« Last post by Dale Reid on Today at 04:34:02 AM »
In another message string Brian refered to a description in the universal.txt file explaining the expected data order for the datain38.ini file.

This is very exciting.  Well, I'm easily excited I guess.

His description says there is one line in the file, so I assume I do not need to add a CR, LF to the end of the string.
Also, if there aren't values, such as soil temperature, I assume I stuff zeros in that placeholder.

Finally, does anyone know how often WD reads thiis file?  Does it check to see if the date/time property of the file has changed and then read it, otherwise if it read it at a regular interval, say every second, then one would want to update it approximately the same rate to catch wind gusts and all.

This program and it's flexibility continue to amaze me.

I have WD 10.37S running with data feed by DATAIN38.INI.  All seems to be working well except it seems to be losing rain.  Over the last few hours, WD has shown .59 inches of rain while the source weather station shows 1.74 inches. 

I assume that the rain value in DATAIN38.INI is the the amount of rain since the last record in mm.  I have a log of the DATAIN38.INI records over that same period that total to 44.2mm (1.74 inches).  The records are posted every 5 minutes.  Suggestions?
WxSim / Re: wxsim freezes the whole stuff

Hi Guy,

I sent you a reply, and am wondering if you got this earlier email from me:

Hi Guy,

I got your screen shots and files.  I tried forecasts for La Turbie, using both the wdat.txt files you sent me, and I even tried switching to French regional settings in Windows for the second one.  Everything worked fine (screen shot attached).

Can you think of ANYTHING you changed about your system, or WXSIM settings, before this problem began?  Can you manually run a "forecast" if you DON'T import any data?

The next thing I can think of trying is sending me custinit.txt, localdat.txt, and localcal.txt to go with the latest wdata.txt file that triggered the error.

Strange, but I think we can fix this!

Best regards,

WD Questions / VP2 Console Battery Tag with weatherlink IP data logger
« Last post by novawx on Today at 01:11:18 AM »
I'm using the weatherlink IP data logger on my VP2 console and I have the WD tag $vpconsolebattery in my wxstatus.php webpage. The voltage on the webpage always shows 0.0. Does anyone know if the weatherlink IP data logger records/transmits console battery voltage? Several years ago I was using the serial data logger connected to my PC and the console battery voltage was correctly reported and displayed on my webpage.

Where is the main FTP switch in Weather Display?
WD for Linux / Re: Segmentation fault
« Last post by jmviper on Today at 12:20:31 AM »
I suggest you try Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.  That is working fine for me with the 9th February build and WD runs happily with the default Unity desktop.

I also have a VNC server installed which uses the XFCE desktop.  WD crashes if I try to change any settings under XFCE, but Brian has written a WD Client which allows remote viewing of the main screen using XFCE.

Thank you for your suggestion but it was sounding strange to me that WD was not working neither latest Ubuntu 17.10 nor Debian 9 Stretch. Finally it was a location issue with ini files.

Greetings from Spain
