All

I'm so glad I found you all! I just finally ordered my Davis WX to replace my old LaCrosse. I wanted to look up some info on setting up the data logger and BOOM ...no more Forum. Great timing eh? Anyway, it good to see everyone here. The one bummer is that we have all lost our status...Sr Drip, Jr drip...etc... :( ...but at least I was still able to keep my handle.

I'm in shock :shock:  I hadn't been on the Ambient Forum in quite some time.  What a shame!  I was not a frequent poster but I learned tons because of the collective knowledge base.  It's great to see many of the members over here now.  Thanks everyone for providing a new home.

Welcome!

It was shut down by the owner because of irrate users calling him, yelling & screaming, making demands and threating legal action. Legal action because they didn't get their way. He said the hell with this and pulled the plug.

Everyone blames the kids these days, I think this more of a parental problem myself! LOL.

Parenting requires thick skin doesn't it? :-P

I just found out the ambient forum was gone..  Also his blog hasn't been updated http://ambientweather.blogspot.com/ hasn't been updated since March of 2007..

Anyone know what the current stable version is?  I am running Davis 14.00 P35 http://www.ambientweather.com/versionhistory.html  says 14.00p022 is the current version.  Wouldn't P35 be newer than 022?

Welcome To The Group!!!
The shutdown was a shock and surprise to many..including myself.
After hearing the actual reason it was obvious why it happened.

A lot of valuable data was lost over there but I do believe we have gained most all of it plus  a bunch more here!
The combined experience here makes for an extremely knowledgeable forum ! About all the answers are here or can be found through here :)

So you know how to set Wuhu up in conjunction with VWS, with no errors?

Welcome to the forum transplants!   ;)   :grin:

....I picked this weekend to move my VWS to a new computer! When I started to run into a few bugs, I remebered the "transferring VWS to another computer" thread on the old board and clicked on my old bookmark to become enlightened (I hadn't checked the Ambient board for a few months). Imagine my shock and horror to see the simple one line message "The Support Forum is no longer active".  :shock:....


Just incase you run into anymore bugs here's a link to Ed's VWS faq.

http://ambientweather.wikispaces.com/Virtual+Weather+Station

There's one specifically in there about moving VWS to a new computer.

http://ambientweather.wikispaces.com/Move+Virtual+Weather+Station+to+one+computer+to+another


Little late now I know.   #-o  But that faq list is going to be pretty valuable to all of us until more of the trials and tribulations are posted here.   :grin:

Thanks Mark
 I to am changing computers for my PWS, and getting everything back on line.

I received an email from member of the forum that they were filing a law suit for the way they were treated by other members.


Sorry, but that's just silly, whoever you are/were.

If you don't like the responses you get (or don't get) on a board, there is no obligation for you to continue to visit that board.

I know this is a VERY old post, but how much "water" would this hold???  After all, it is a post in a public forum!  GEEZZZ!!!!  Why do people think they can threaten others on a forum?  stupid!

Oh well... we all go on!  \:D/
