What would the neighbours see if the temp is below zero DegC.
I thought of an interesting idea for my wildly under-used Raspberry Pi 3. i could set it up for digital signage (Screenly OSE), and set it to display a non-public portion of my website that i can setup as a family appointments calendar. people here at home can use my website to enter appointments, and the digital signage Rpi with a small HDTV could be located in a central location, so for instance, if somebody was far later than usual getting home, one look could confirm or deny an appointment.That's just one thought i had though. I have also thought of using it as a large central display, showing data from various Arduinos logging telemetry. for instance, a weather monitoring system. i could even combine the two, and provide a calendar, with the weather telemetry. whatever i end up with, i will make it open-source, so others can use it, and make it better (or worse ).
Hi,Don't you have access to data like this, from our BOM?http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDV60801/IDV60801.94852.shtmlTom..
yes, but they would be more helpful if the local reports were closer than a 2.5hour drive away.
well, i had a doctor appointment today... she says i have stage 3 (or 4, i don't remember) kidney disease. apparently my kidneys are only functioning at about half their expected rate, or something. so, no more ibuprofen for my hellatious back pain (degenerative joint disease, AKA: arthritis).in other news, my weather sensor set should show up today, at some point. i just have to figure out the best place to mount the sensors, and still be able to get to them for adjustments or repairs. the solar radiation shield for the thermometer, and other stuff (humidity, barometric pressure, and whatever else) can all be mounted low.~Travis
Sorry to hear about the kidneys mate, my wife had hers fail for about 24hours due to blood poisoning.In the days leading up to it she was very ill. She recovered, but not full function, fortunately she only needed 24hours of dialysis to come good, but then had to have regular blood tests.
I get about 5 years out of my weather stations, UV certainly takes its toll, especially in the wind vane and wind speed cups.My last one died after a lightning strike about 1/2 a km away, when I took it down, most of the plastic was stuffed or lost its shine and one of the cups fell off due to UV of 5 years.The only thing that was recoverable was the rainguage unit.The main electronics looked okay, but no Tx.
A lovely Spring day here... lolTom.....
