Weather Web Cams / Re: POST your currently updating webcam image here!
« Last post by VE7FQN on Today at 03:47:33 PM »
I was looking around and found this ip webcam by Wansview on Amazon.  It is an outdoor 720p wifi camera reasonably priced $68.I picked it earlier this week and found it easy to setup.I bought it for something to try out. I have found the picture quality to be better than I expected. Below are pics showing 480 and 720.

WeatherUnderground / Re: WU - Let us know your issues
« Last post by DoctorKnow on Today at 12:01:30 PM »
I am curious if WU is planning new graphics, because some of them are just so ancient looking now, especially the Wundermap, and this is how they plan to "pay" for the upgrades, or maybe the new stuff they may be rolling out will not accommodate the current and past stuff they have taken away very easily? I would really hope whatever they're doing would be a lot more "user friendly" and "operable" than the current system. I just can't imagine why you would need to announce the ending of something like API without something else going on.

I saw that this morning, the satellite images were not loading. I checked some other WxForum member's sites, but I found that the date was for yesterday (5/26).
I then checked through the code and found that the script draws from https://cdn.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES16/ABI/SECTOR/. For example the directory https://cdn.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES16/ABI/SECTOR/cgl/GEOCOLOR/ will list the files and the newest date was at 26-May-2018 22:40

The date on the "latest" image, in the image is shown as 26 May 2018 1552 UTC.

It seems that something died over at the NWS side. I am guessing that this won't be fixed until Tuesday...

I am still going to send data to them until they won't accept it.   If someone can benefit from my data  then it is worth the sending. Otherwise, it just sits somewhere doing no good for anyone.    IF their API costs, well shucks, I don't need to use it.   There are other sources out and about.

The CSS file, 'mesonet-map.css', is the culprit.  More specifically, the z-index. Likewise for 'quake-json.css'
Thanks, Jerry.

You know something, I really don't know what WU's intentions are.  I'll wait and see, as I mentioned above.  I just feel that if WU withholds data from PWS owners and those users are contributing to data to them that would be a very unfair arrangement.  But, again, I really don't know what's going on...just chatter on the boards.  So, to keep things more "fair"(?) I did change my "status" message on WU. 

Status: There are rumors that WeatherUnderground will be making changes that adversely affect my PWS website, www.BeeWeather.com. Should this actually come to fruition I will discontinue streaming my data to WU. Local conditions, NWS forecasts, Weather Cam, ect., will still be found at BeeWeather.

I think my first one was just a knee-jerk reaction.  :oops:

The developer of the wX Android app is looking for beta testers for his new IOS app.
The app will be called wXL23. If you are interested send me a PM and I will forward his email.

I guess I missed that. Was that part of their new privacy policy?
I can't imagine why they would do that, but that is surely one of the final nails in the coffin.

Hey, Randy.  I think I used that one before, though it was the Mobile or Fort Rucker radar.  I'll revisit it again.  Thanks for the memory refresher!
