Are there any Mac webmasters out there with a VantagePro2 weather station?
I am just in the throws of setting it up and then will have to figure out how to download the data to my computer and then from there ... upload it to my website.
Just trolling to see if anyone has been there and done that before and to see if I hyave a brain to pick should the need arise?
If you go to the Weather Underground site (wunderground.com) and enter your home town, you'll see at the bottom of the page a list of personal stations that are in operation near you. If you poke around in this list you'll see that it gives the hardware/software that each station is running. That might be a route to find a neighbor who has the same set up as you.
I've used a lot of different ones, but I've settled on Weather Display for now. It's cumbersome, but does more than any I've tried, and they have a great forum. I don't think they have a Mac vers, but they do have Linux. Shop trial versions to find one that suits your site. However, most are not very intuitive so it can be time-consuming to test.
I'd highly recommend dedicating an old beater computer for weather downloading and uploading as I've yet to find a super-stable weather app.
