After a couple of months offline, with only a flat line report from 31st August being shown, the weather station is sending reports to the Lewis’s hosting web site again. We originally had a failure on the original notebook power supply that resulted in a critical driver corruption. The notebook had a new power supply purchased and was rebuilt, but still no joy due to serial / USB interface problem. We obtained another donated laptop and built that and it has been running for some time now, but file transfers to the web site continued to elude us. These have now been addressed and the site is receiving updates.
If we are honest, the creator / custodian has been a bit distracted for last three months due to having the builders in. But, it is fixed now and we even managed to address the problems with spikes in wind speed.
