Thought i'd post a test graphic - shows something! Lol!

Just a test of the wind speed and barometer only. I thank Graham for telling me how to do that! Wink

Very nice Wazza! That's the business! Glad you found it OK in WD. Nice fancy background too!

Thanks bud!

Yeah found it ok, and the background was already like that, not changed anything. Pretty cool software I must say!

It's very comprehensive software, but it's got its bugs! Smile I use it for some aspects of the FifeWeather site but wouldn't like to run anything mission critical on it. I find it very powerful and very frustrating all at the same time! LOL! Smile I shouldn't be too hard, it's generally pretty good but often upgrading breaks things that were working fine, so I tend to upgrade it very infrequently and carefully.

I will bear that in mind, thanks for the heads-up!

Do you know if there is any software out there without bugs? I have seen another one but the display isn't anywhere near as good!

I think such software is on everybody's wish list Wazza.

If I could find something decent, I'd use it for the weatherlab too. But I couldn't, so I was forced to build my own system for WeatherEvents. As WeatherEvents is all web-based though, I didn't need to create a console display like WeatherDisplay has.. the weatherlab setup is all based on PHP.

If I had more time and coding talent, I'd try writing something from scratch. I see a lot of folk using Sandysoft Cumulus these days. Have considered migrating to it myself in fact (and may still one day).

Not too sure about how the graphs, etc look out of it though, but I'm getting to the point now where I just want something to log the data out of the weatherstation into a database, and then I can generate the graphs on the fly, on the webserver from there. I think ultimately it's the most stable way to go!

Ah excellent Graham, just saved that link to my bookmarks bar.

I think the trouble with WD is that they have tried to make it too flashy, and the result of that is that it is confusing to use due to the amount of info on one screen. It does have bugs and I am now just seeing them crop up!

I no way have the technical know-how to build/write my own software, I would love to though! Idea

I would agree totally with your comments about WD Wazza. I think it has just grown organically rather than being designed with a feature-set from day one. As a result, there's stuff strewn everywhere and changing some settings in one section then have an undesired knock-on effect in another (that's certainly been my experience).

I think what it can do is great. How it goes about doing it is lousy. Smile

I'd be interested in hearing how you get on with Cumulous if you do choose to go down that road!
