Lightning / Re: All Gaia Servers are currently offline.
« Last post by n2qew on Today at 11:01:27 PM »
If it happens again, I'd suggest sending an email to the support email that us hosts all have. I did yesterday and got a reply shortly after that they were working on an issue. Got another later telling me  "all better".

Any idea what "Gaia" actually means?

Funny i've noticed the cocorahs records .01 faster than my metal 8" NWS gauge which has a wetting factor of about .005 before it will measure on the stick. A little Rain-X for plastic or car wax on the funnel should increase beading and roll off faster.

So do you think it is the TP-Link (specifically)? Could this be caused by your ISP and/or network/computer environment? Never had a TP-Link crash but this is with WLIP, have one left running that was started July 2015 (still running July 2015 firmware) and still running today. Will replace this one with a MBPro Black shortly simply for the fact that the MBPro is more purpose built.   

I am not knowledgeable about the TP Link.  I can't talk to the company that made it, it's been modified.  I have asked if anyone knows or has an opinion about why it crashes every day.  The only answer I got was that it is not backward compatible with USB 1.0.  I got a hub to fix that and it still crashes every day.  I am not an IT person or a computer programmer.  Right this moment, it's working great.  But it can't be left to run on it's own because it won't.  It has crashed about 6 or 7 times now.

After replacing the fan when it is still on the ground, without powering it up, give it a good soaking with a water hose. Start at the bottom and work your way up until you see water getting in, or not getting in.

Also, Google "cable drip loop".

I will definitely seal the cable that goes to the PCB plus do a drip loop. At this point I will do anything to keep it running.

In this picture you can see the separation.
You are right, the GFI will not trip if anything goes wrong on the DC side such as letting the smoke out the components.  :-)

Thank you for the clarification. Hopefully this will solve his problem cause I'm out of ideas.  :?

Wait I'm lost. How does that solve my problem? What does that mean?
Not saying it does solve your problem. IF water got into the fan assembly itself, it could have destroyed the motor WITHOUT tripping the GFI. That part I did not know was possible. However, this means with your new motor properly sealed as 'dupreezd' shows, it MAY fix the problem. With your lack of knowledge in this area and how you relate it to us can make trouble shooting very difficult.

That is an understatement for sure! I am going to be pissed if something like this happens again with the new fan!
This is not rocket surgery. You, we, us, will get it eventually. [-o<

Like you said, when you're dealing with someone with no real knowledge in this area, it damn near can be rocket surgery! I have basically come up with everything in my mind that could have gone wrong (as have you), double checked everything. Talk about extremely frustrating! I just want a fan for my FARS again! New fan should be here tomorrow.

Thank you for the link. Now I know it is possible and do-able.
I will order the parts and go from there.

Yep,  :idea: going to 'replace' my WS-1200 sensors somehow, will see. Not physically, but software wise as you have done. Thanks
