Limping Back

It's been a long time! Computer running weather software crashed and have only recently been able to procure a replacement. The good news is that the "new" machine is several generations newer than the old machine. Still, it's a throwback to 2001 (not a typo)

KILSPRIN13 is up and running but I still need to do some tweaking and quality control checks on the data being uploaded to wunderground.

Erroneous Data

In the ongoing saga...We have been operating temporarily off a non-dedicated machine. As of this writing, a replacement "weather" computer has been installed. Now to re-tweak (once again) all the settings.

We are back on the air sending valid data to Weather Underground. Still tweaking some settings in the web page generator (VWS) to get everything back where it belongs.
