My software, WeatherSense, has been running flawlessly on the Raspberry Pi for over 3 months. It ran for 55 days between the last 2 reboots. That is so cool. The code is available on GitHub for the extreme adventurers. I am now creating a monitoring application that interfaces with a PiGlow LED board for the Raspberry Pi (Link). This will give an indication if there is an issue with the weather data collection with a glance at the Pi.

Looking forward to seeing how the solar radiation values correlate with the pool temperature, wh...
