Hi
I'm Kate from ScotWeather based in Falkirk.  I run my own WS2300 weather station and have a hobby interest in the weather.  I don't go chasing at the moment but it is something I'd love to do.  I'm one of the only people publishing HeavyWeather data on both UKWN and here at Scottish Weather Network.

Its also SO nice to see some familiar people here and for those of you who know me as either Scotweather or Nimbus........ HI !  ;)

Hi Kate, and welcome.

Good to see more people joining in.

I came in through a back door, so to speak.

I am more into Home Automation, basically HomeSeer, and have always had a fascination with the weather.

HomeSeer can control a lot of devices depending on the weather, interfaced with Weather Display, hence I made the jump and purchased a Weather Station, Weather Display, Wether Display Live, and joined this forum, plus a couple of others along the road.

Wow for one month that was a shock for the bank.  ;D

I have always been fascinated by the weather, sailing has a bit to do with that, however, to watch what is happening around and what is going on here is fascinating.

Welcome Aboard Kate.

Hi and thank you all for the warm welcome.  Some of you know me from one or two popular other forums and even perhaps my own.
I also run a Scottish centred website as until now Scottish Resources have been scarce in one place.  I also enjoy doing graphics and have some wind dial graphics that can be used to represent wind direction.  If you would like a copy of them for your website then just let me know (FOC of course).

Here is one of them.

I really hope this site grows from strength to strength.

If anyone who runs Heavy Weather Beta 2 release wants to know how to get their data on the Scottish Weather Network Meso Map please let me know.

Cheers
Kate

If you want to put together a wee FAQ then that maybe handy for others who would like to join.
You could put it in the Mesomap Changes/Instructions (http://www.scottishweather.net/forum/index.php?board=7.0) area if you want.  ;D

I've now added the WUHU stickertags file to the site, along with the instructions, so it is now fully supported on here, as you are proving.  ;)

Nice graphics btw.  ;D

Thanks.

I would put together a how to do whats it but members would have to join another forum to get the bit required to be able to parse the data from Heavy Weather.  What is your policy on mentioning other forums ?

What are WUHU stickertags and where do I find them please ?

Feel free to mention other forums. Most of use are members of them anyway so I don't see that it matters.  ;)

WUHU is the Weather Underground/Heavy Weather Uploader (http://home.comcast.net/~wuhu_software/) program, which is what I thought you were using. If you've got another setup the we would be pleased to hear about it, and so would the other networks I'm sure.  ;D

The Stickertags is the name given to the textfile that members upload to their website so that the SCWN server can fetch the data. There's a copy of it here: http://www.scottishweather.net/WUHU_stickertags.txt
