The web server figures for last year (2015) are analysed: 2,375,548 total hits (up from 2,250,000-odd hits in 2014) averaging over 6,500 hits per day. As in 2014, during 2015, the playing euchre page had more separate visitors than the weather; but the realtime weather data had the most downloads at over 2,140,000. Firefox was again the most popular browser with "others" coming second then Internet Explorer, Chrome and then safari.

Now we've got broadband (and our telephone) back, here's November's weather data. You'll see that at some time during the 60mph gusts our anemometer started reporting wind speed again!

02 Jan 2015

Uploaded the last two month's weather data that we have. Unfortunately during the high winds in December we lost the wind speed yet again. The direction is OK, it's just the speed that's gone, until we can get up and look at the anemometer again. The whole datasets from the past are still on the archive weather data page:

October 2014
November 2014
December 2014

The web server figures for last year (2014) are now analysed: 2,335,090 total hits (up from 900,748 hits in 2013) averaging over 6,000 hits per day. During 2014, the playing euchre page had more separate visitors than the weather; but the realtime weather data had the most downloads at over 2,000,000. Firefox was again the most popular browser with IE second and Google Chrome third.

Added some pictures showing the Rayburn being removed and the new Heritage installation in 2014.

20 Dec 2014

A new season so new euchre scores web page and spreadsheet updated to show the latest matches.

Note that the wind speed has gone wrong again. It was gusting over 55 mph and suddenly stopped reading speed. The direction is right, the speed is wrong. Oh well.

01 Nov 2014

Uploaded the weather data we have bearing in mind the weather station failure and the two computer failures. These are Excel spreadheets of each month's data that we have (see the whole datasets from the archive weather data page):

OK, so a nearby lightning strike took out our router/hub and everything plugged into it: the femto-cell, the backup system and the PC that does the weather uploading. Most things were replaced but the insurance company repaired the PC. Except that the repair didn't account for the problems caused by changing motherboard! Lost Windows and had to reload the whole thing from scratch. The upshot is, we've lost weather data from July until October 2014 and all extreme records have been reset to 30th October 2014. Oh well!

We'll upload the spreadsheets of the data we have shortly.

19 May 2013

Added a different version of the Euchre scores showing the achievements (or otherwise) of members of the team. Don't forget you have to have played in at least half of the games to be eligible to win the cup! Hmm. If I never play in home games, I can never win the cup again.

We've also still to get the weather back on-line. We received a replacement for the temperature/humidity sensor and that's all working fine again. However, we've not had a replacement anemometer -- so we're without wind speed. Hopefully the replacement will arrive soon. Watch this space for details.

04 Apr 2013

Added the weather data for August 2012 to the archive

31 Aug 2012

The new anemometer (and wind direction measure) was fitted and then wired to the pole and then the whole lot was reinstalled this morning. All working again. The wind speed in our weather data is now valid again (the direction was working all along but with no speed measurement some systems rejected it).

30 Aug 2012

Weather data for the year so far added to the archive

Current status of the weather station:
The wind speed and direction head was taken down (which involved first putting up the scaffolding, then the two-person job of lowering the pole while disconnecting the leads and avoiding the satellite dish) on 28th August. Unfortunately, the anemometer part was not repairable using the normal fixes, so a new one was ordered. It arrived next day (well done Prodata) and was tested on 30th. Due to go back up on 31 August when the re-installation team can reconvene! The more complete weather data should then be available again from the start of September :-)
