That's pretty cool, Mike. Sure beats typing over "signal" or "FFT" and the station number all the time in the image URL like I have been doing...

Thanks Mike for doing this. I realized today that I have not grounded my controller. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) Plan on doing that tomorrow, if possible, before it gets screaming hot.

What does it signify when one's station is highlighted in yellow?

Great Effort!

This is a treasure trove for those who are curious, to say the least.

THANKS.

Hey, maybe it isn't enough caffeine here, but what did you mean by this statement?

" proper 'cycle' images for your station... upper left corner of each image..."

I'm not getting it.  What's a cycle to you?  The version? The stepping through the images?  I'm confuzed.

I gotcha.  It would be 'watching updates happen' in my vernacular!

No static images unless the aforementioned things are causing the station to not be updating in the server.

Just verbage, but I was thinking of having to manually click on something to see it change.

All is well with my page.

Two questions more:

How much of a load does this place on the BO server?  Does it efficiently dispatch to your display scripts, or is it a bandwidth hog when you are getting a request for a display (which, question 1a, is do you generate those displays constantly, or ONLY when someone loads a particular station and then your software gets busy?)

Final question:  Do you drink from a fountain or a bubbler?

Thanks for how you do it.

And, is it pop or soda?

REDS: When you upgrade to firmware V7.2 you will see some interesting changes in your signals display...  ;)
(Find 7.2 after BO login, miscellaneous, firmware directory)

I noticed there was a new firmware version available on the controller webpage under either the Status or Settings tab (can't remember which one showed it). I just clicked on download and it grabbed the latest version.

Forgot to mention... duh


One feature of the 'signals'  is not working - Egon turned it off at the server a few weeks ago as they began loading new processing. On the far right of the signal image is a red line... when this feature is available, that line will move to somewhere in the waveform for each signal... that means the server used it, and selected that point on the waveform. Also, on the 'channel' display text information, a 101 would show by the 'used' channel. If the signal was not used, that would show '100' and the red line would remain at the right margin. I hope he'll turn it on again, we can then get an idea of what a 'good' signal looks like...

Have been looking at various sites to see how everyone's waveforms compare to mine. While doing this, I just noticed that the red-line is still fixed at the right-side of the signals display but now, I am seeing a vertical white line that seems to move around on the display. Does anyone know what this white line is indicating? Is it new or have I just missed it in the past?

It looks like all of the Region 3 signals are flat-lined... Those from Europe appear to be okay. I guess this is an indication that Egon is still working on the servers.

I like that a lot, Mike. Being able to see each channel is a major plus.

Curiously, my 6.8USB "Green" waveforms are still working (as is FFT).

Still wish that they would put E-Field into the FFT....

Why did I miss that?!?

I guess that I was thinking about the all-in-one FFT, but that would probably be a big mess. Looks good Mike, I guess that I am a "little slow" this morning....

Hi Mike,

Is there something that I am missing to do as I see that I have been seeing flat lined graphics at http://frankfortweather.us/BoStaSig/maui993/index.html?

Your hi res looks very good.

May I suggest that your http://frankfortweather.us/BoStaSig/, either be in numerical order by Stations or in alphabetical order by Country/State... might be easier to locate instead by City.  Just my thinking...

Thanks for getting this project to where we can see what others are seeing to make some comparison.

Regards,

Cutty

question being region 1 (France) where the graphs are dead for several days. You seem to still have access to them, you generate them privately or Egon gave you a testing access to new graphs?

I guess the generation of these graphs is quite ressource hungry and since many stations have been added in very short time, I guess the poor servers have the fans spinning full speed.

Any details of what's coming or a possibility to start some graph generating on private servers ?

wondering if a boinc style collaboration might be interesting to share some work over all the red stations we have, mostly using like 30% cpu, there is capacity to use I think ...
