I believe you can do that by setting Forwarding in your web host settings (I use GoDaddy)

Enjoy,

It may have changed, but WU was needed for the charts historical data.  I have a couple of older versions (tests) that used MySQL database data for charts so WU then not needed.


Enjoy,

WU is not my only source to upload or to see my data or weather information, so I can be patient and let them work on fixing and improving things.  I take them for their word that they are working on things for the better, and that it is a big task to do that.

Enjoy,

Tweetymail.com used to do this, but it is dead now.  Zapier will do it but that is via a script.  SAme for things like IFTTT so unless Weatherlink 2.0 has that function, you are pooched.

Thank you, Johnd and dalecoy.

That'll be a bummer if the cap shorted and the SIM board got damaged.  Wish I had a circuit diagram so I could check out likely damaged components in such a case.   

I guess, unless the board draws excessive current that I cannot fix in any other way (eg. replace an offending sensor), that I could also consider running DC up to the SIM (cheaper option than having to replace the SIM board).

There are a lot of things in addition to the supercap that could go wrong.  For one simple example, a nearby lightning strike could cause a diode to fail (open or shorted), or damage the transmitter.  Or the rain gauge magnetic switch could have a problem. 

DC to the SIM is easy - buy an additional power supply for the console.  It's the same connection and voltage.

My opinion here...

Consider just shutting WU down...it's ruined. Every day there's something wrong. Today I can't log on and only get the local forecast with much info on that page blank. Lately the favorite cities function has been AFU. Can't change or add and it's loaded with repeats of the same city. Functions work one day then don't the next. The list is endless...

A few years back it was the best weather service going, now it's been (intentionally?) ruined as far as I'm concerned.

Pretty hard to disagree. Here's my latest "improvement":

Thanks for the more complete description of events.

Solar panel good, presume supercap is good.  Simple test:  unplug *ALL* sensors (anemometer, rain, t/h), see what happens tonight.  (also observe that blinking LED, but I suspect it's 2.5 seconds blinking).

It seems to be reasonably common that replacing a supercap that has become faulty does not restore the board to full operation. I can only guess that a faulty supercap (or maybe one that's been seriously faulty for a while) sometimes damages some other part of the SIM board circuitry, but quite what I've no idea - it's just an observation across many such boards.

If you're comfortable doing it then replacing a faulty supercap is always worth doing as a first go at fixing the problem, but don't be surprised if the issue isn't permanently fixed. I'd guess that maybe 30-40% of such faults end up needing a replacement SIM board.
