Davis Instruments Weather Stations / www.weatherlink.com https error
« Last post by wvdkuil on Today at 02:48:37 AM »
Since May  19th  12:00 UTC  the https certificate for https://www.weatherlink.com is not valid anymore.

When linking to that site the browser throws an error, NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID 
CURL access will fail.

Scripts who retrieve API data should still use http://

Davisnet announced earlier this year that they won't be doing any improvements on their software , they are going cloud .     You still need Weatherlink installed on your computer. you need it to set things if you have an Envoy rather than console.  Console you see what you have and can set it from the console,  Envoy, nope.

Some of us oldfolks are content with using WeatherLink software to collect and archive data, and upload to our own sites (easily understood, non-fancy presentation), to Weather Underground, APRS, WeatherLink.com 2.0, etc.

There are very few improvements that could be made to the existing WeatherLink software that might not break existing functions that are dependable and "just work".  Changes to make a resulting personal-website display look "non-1995" would actually be completely new additions.

That's something that Davis does not need to do - because, as pointed out in this topic, there are MANY alternatives to choose from.  Why should Davis duplicate the work that others have done?
  and I would assume on a similar note, there are some people who live for summer because they love to be bitten by mosquitoes.   Maybe you are thrilled with the current Weatherlink 6.0.3 and that is fine, but there are a faction that want more

A belated thanks for the suggestion, Don, but I prefer the ability to instantly go to any date and time available.  Loops would be a totally different beast.  The way it's configured now you can pick a time of day and view successive days by moving your cursor down a column.  Or you can pick a day of interest and move your cursor over the successive times of that day.  Loops don't allow this sort of comparison viewing at all.

I just noticed today that the NWS has modified the comparison parameters for all but the 'Weather' by adding about a day and a half in the PM and about two days in the AM of 8 comparisons/day for all of the non-'Weather' comparisons whereas they all previously had only four comparisons/day.

The updated script is available dated today on my website.

You just made the argument why you should get the remote TX. Do you think wifey would like her yard dug up and a cable run up the side of her house??
Unless you're putting the anny directly over the ISS, you'll regret not getting it now. Just sayin'....

Any chance we can get Dr. Phil in the house?  Bloody hell, this thing is getting mounted on the roof.

Maybe I could run a cable underground and then up the house to the roof?
Do you think that's worth the time and trouble vs spending a few extra bucks for the remote TX? Not even close in my book...

you guys are a terrible influence.  $108 at SI for the transmitter is a great deal for the solution I need.  Money really isn't the issue.  It's more or less the "scope creep" with this project in conjunction with the fact that my wife thinks I am crazy.  Perhaps I set everything up, wait a month, and then buy the transmitter.  Spacing the project out may help with wife's viewpoint.
