Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Vantage Pro2 rain gauge problems
« Last post by WheatonRon on Yesterday at 11:18:07 PM »
One of the reasons Davis equipment costs more is because of the service they provide post warranty period. While Davis sent me replacement reed switches too, unfortunately that did not fix my issue; however, I was so impressed with Davis’ help on a ten year old VP2 system, I ended up buying a new ISS from Scaled Instruments that fixed my issue. In short, you get what you pay for in life—you may pay more upfront for a product, but over time you earn that “premium” back.

WeatherUnderground / Re: WU - Let us know your issues

the largest, hosts for our data.  I'd hate to see them go by the wayside.
IBM bought WU for the PWS network.  It is used to feed Watson's weather forecasting AI engine which IBM sells for huge money to corporations which need microclimate weather data.  Putting on my Carnac the Magnificent (kids, ask your parents who that is) hat, I predict that the PWS pages and data will be migrated over to weather.com and sooner rather than later.  It is not cost effective to run both sites and since WU appears to be mortally wounded it makes more sense to gather up what value remains and apply it to weather.com, which IBM also owns.  The WU site has been severely broken since the latest "upgrade" was pushed out in September, and it just keeps getting worse.

Just ride it out and hope that WU can make it.  Places for weather hobbyists to present their data are all good.  WU, being one of, if not the largest, hosts for our data.  I'd hate to see them go by the wayside.  My data is still uploading to them...and will continue on for them to use...or not.  If they decide to close the door I will naturally shut down the feed, but until them...let it roll.  ;)

I'm not the only one having the issue with a blank dashboard, it's been posted elsewhere.
Seems like everyone finds a different bug with the site - this is seriously laughable, but at the same time, what can we do about it? That's the sadder part.

Well azchrisf I'm going to quit complaining about my Favorites and a little missing data.  I don't have your issues.
You will.  They've quit trying to save it and now the roof is caving in.

They're sending out surveys which basically are about what we want them to put on the weather.com site.  The days of WU are very limited...I wouldn't be surprised if it were gone by July.

I think you are getting carried away. I would be very surprised if WU went away by July or anytime soon. I don’t think IBM would tarnish its image that way. I have noticed marginal improvement in how my WU page is displayed. That said, IBM has a long way to go to make us weather enthusiasts feel good about WU and life in general.

The silence from WU is defening. It would be such a shame to lose their services, but as pointed out in other posts, their reputation is very tarnished. Such a classic example of big fish eating little fish and spitting them out cuz they taste funny.

What’s really sad is that the big fish is IBM. I worked on their software for years and their quality was impeccable. To me it looks like they have lost the ability to manage software and run quality projects. I would never again recommend their products, either hardware or software. My station will not be transferred to Weather.com. During the past six months I have developed my own capability to capture and analyze my data. I also have my data posted at another site now for those people in my neighborhood that use it.
