That looks great Ken  =D> I have the URL bookmarked.  Is there a quick link to it somewhere on this forum other than this thread?

Thank you,
Paul

Yes, I'll be adding it to the WXForum.net 'News' area.  Steve has already changed the links on the Sandaysoft/forum.

I've added a Software/Download page on the Wiki with all the current Cumulus stuff (now with Mx source, released by Steve today).

I've never used Cumulus or its forum before, but yesterday I googled a weather topic and the forum came up as one of the top links.

I found what I was looking for, too!

The (Cumulus) forum will be moving on Sunday 04/11/2018

Hi all,

With Steve's blessing, I have agreed to host the Cumulus forum from Sunday 04/11/2018 onwards.

The plan is to shut down the forum at sandaysoft.com at 10:00 UTC on Sunday. The forum will be made live in the new location from 11:00 UTC on Sunday. The hour's downtime will be used to migrate the database and perform some testing.

The URL for the new location will be: https://cumulus.hosiene.co.uk/

A redirect will be created from sandaysoft.com/forum to the new location. This will ensure that links in search engine results will work.

The forum is already available in the new location. Feel free to log on and take a look and make some test posts. You will need to log on at the new location, as "remember me" settings don't get migrated. Usernames and passwords are carried across to the new location, so your existing credentials will work there. If you can't remember your password then please use the password retrieval facility on the login page. You may like to add the email address administrator@hosiene.co.uk to your email whitelist, so that forum emails aren't treated as spam/junk. The forum at the new location currently contains the content of sandaysoft.com/forum as at 29/10/2018. Note that any posts you make at the new location will be removed when the database is re-migrated on Sunday.

If there is a problem with the migration (unlikely - but you never know!) then the forum will revert back to sandaysoft.com while the problem is resolved. If this occurs then notices will be placed at both locations.

Regards,
Niall (aka freddie!)
Freddie

Ahh.. that pesky Euro format dd/mm/yyyy or USA format of mm/dd/yyyy.

The Cumulus forum is moving to the new URL on 04-November-2018.  Thanks beteljuice for the notification and clarification.

International date formats vary widely some using / , some using . and some using - as delimters -- the trick is to use one that has the same meaning world-wide.

The official ISO format is YYYY-MM-DD  (like 2018-11-04) which is non-ambiguous (but not commonly used).

The real fun starts when using the / format for the date where the USA uses mm/dd/yyyy while pretty much everybody else uses the dd/mm/yyyy format so when dd<=12 AND mm<=12, the date is confusing to some part of the world.

Illogical Captain ....

What's the date ? - November

What's the date ? - 4th. (of what ?) November.

I believe to avoid ambiguity International standards for eg. Inoculations etc. is 4th. November 2018.

eg. Month is always proper noun, not a number.

What was the name of that film starring Tom Cruise? Born on July 4? It should have been according to the US rules on date structure. Doesn't flow does it? There's a clue there chaps!
