WeatherLink by Davis Instruments / Re: WeatherLink 6.05 Now Free

I just want to be able to migrate my historical data and my serial data logger (Weather Monitor II) from Windows 98SE to Windows 7.

What makes you think that has anything to do with such a transfer?

Run a current version of Weatherlink for Windows on your Win7 machine and look in the Help for how to copy existing data files from your old PC to the new one. (Or if AND ONLY IF if you were running eg v4 of Weatherlink previously then look at how to Import data files in the old format).
Always a tricky one this. For one example, what if the event occurs whilst the moon is below the horizon during the day. Visually both the night before and the night after the actual event will be equally full moons.

I think the WLL would be very appealing to any entity, be it a hobbyist/enthusiast with a smart home system or a company wanting to integrate weather data in their infrastructure, were a useful, standards-based API be available for such integrations. I would imagine for many of these use cases the presence of a a console is useless, and for them a device like this - a self-contained, networking capable device - would be a pretty good choice. It might be that Davis is still researching their target segment with this early release where much of the promised integration functionality is not available yet.

Until it has an API I don't see many people wanting one.

While the appearance of the API will undoubtedly be very welcome, if I may say so, you have to step outside the mindset of the hardcore hobbyist whose ranks are (unsurprisingly) over-represented in this forum.

There is a substantial proportion of Davis buyers who appreciate all the extra features that computer processing brings (eg see your own current weather on a smartphone app from anywhere) but who really can't be bothered with all this running a PC, setting up a website etc stuff. Products like WLL are a godsend to them and they will buy one - they really don't care too much if is the only easy place they can view their data and many will feel that the $50pa Pro plan is a necessary evil that they're willing to entertain, just like they do for many other subscriptions they pay for these days.

I think there may also be a significant number of hobbyists who might run a WLL alongside their current logger-based solution just for ease and flexibility of uploading to

So personally I think it will sell, certainly as much as the IP logger and probably more so.

Pretty ugly looking box too.
Surprised that no one mentioned this before. It is.

For now yes. Unless they bring back the editing function that used to exists. I miss it too.
Without the ability to correct erroneous data WU's data archive is just slightly better than useless. At this point, and considering how WU has co-opted this forum, I'm not sure there is any reason to continue to waste effort trying to improve it when they really aren't interested in hearing any of it.

I have used then for a number of years, paid as I didn't want advertising. Excellent  and easy to set up. [tup]

would it be possible to make a Swiss flag?
the beteljuice is experimenting with some code for various topocentric Moon data.

ie. As seen by the observer.

So when (to the casual visitor) is New Moon ?

Various sites / progs will calculate it to the second, but ....
In an ordinary calendar, Full Moon is the local day in which that moment occurred.
Further - the chances are any (numbered) moon graphic will be covering the 'moonday' (which is NOT the same as the local day) and thus will display Full Moon +/- 12 hours of the moonday cycle.
or yet  another way of looking at it is a 24 hour period = 3.75% of illumination (98.214% >  1.785%)

So ... regardless of the graphic, when do you 'feel' you should be advised it's a Full (New) Moon ?

I don't have an educated or working knowledge of meteorology at all. Only what I have been self taught because it interests me greatly.  I don't see that as a barrier to understanding and being able to follow satellite maps.
Evidently a poor choice of my words on my part. I am completely self taught myself, as I've had a love of the weather as long as I remember and was merely trying to convey that the same could be for you. With that, I'm dubious if you'll find exactly what your looking for.
