Very sad to hear that.  I used the TNET graphics for my signature banner for several years and they were great.

RIP Kevin.

WD for Linux / Re: Command not found when running sudo ./configure && make for libhid

The WMR180 only transmits a wind value about each minute, so there's no real current/gust data.

WD for Linux / Re: WD - 64-BIT "Ubuntu" Linux Version - Execution Issue
« Last post by GrantK on January 17, 2018, 11:51:44 PM »
Might you please advise the Ubuntu 64 bit Version you used-- or am I missing something obvious.

always prefer Linux to WIN, well for 20 years anyhow..still determined to get your SW wonder operating thereon.
Greg, if you don't have any luck getting WD to run on Linux Mint, I suggest you try Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.  This is what I'm using along with some others I know of.  A low-powered Intel NUC with i3 processor runs this software just fine and I no longer need to leave my desktop running 24/7.

WD for Linux currently has a large memory leak which means it has to restart once per day, or else the entire RAM of a 16GB system is consumed.  Apparently it is caused by a compiler issue so will hopefully be resolved at some point.  As an interim measure, Brian has set it to restart at 3:10am each day.

Brian has written an excellent client for WD which I can run in a remote VNC session.  This may be of interest if you want to run WD for Linux in headless configuration as I do.

not normally for other station types
but this station type they are being provided as the same number
(I could then make it so that there is a running average for the average speed)

I'll do a new test this weekend and see if the dead zone is in the anemometer.

wind found
 speed= 0.9 m/s  dir 135 average 0.9

that shows that for the raw data, the 2 values are the same
for wunderground data though, it will be sending an average of the average speed values (and then maximum of the current speed values since last data send), sort of thing

Ok.

So in WD, the Windspeed and Gustspeed will always be the same value?

WD Questions / Re: Tide Program time format question

Hi Dan
I think I have to agree with you as to how picky the wxtide program is. So if I want to start over again with the tide module, have you come across a preferred way of taking out the existing version of wxtide and its associated files, and then adding it back in to WD?
I read in the help files for wxtide, that it is standalone and does not mess with the host PC's registry.
