Problem w/ V 1.85

Recommended Posts

Guest byoung

I think something is wrong with the way AS is parsing out the wx infoThis line reads:Active Wx Station KIND / 1nm ize = "5">KIND 250055Z 17007....What is happening? Will it be able to load the wx properly?Barry

At PHNL it was raining despite the METAR reporting CLR. Really strange was the wind direction/velocity - it appeared to have the ICAO characters where the wind should have been (PHNHNKT).-michael

Really strange was>the wind direction/velocity - it appeared to have the ICAO>characters where the wind should have been (PHNHNKT).Michael, look at the wind speeds I have got today:WMO ID: 82900 / 54nm / Format: [Height-Ft(Meters):Dir/Spd/Tmp][00434(0132):165/09/25][02661(0810):155/15/18][05029(1531):130/14/16][10390(3163):045/13/09][19316(5880):060/09/-06][24966(7600):290/03/-16][31865(9700):285/22/-33][35971(10950):260/39/-43][40800(12420):265/34/-55][46647(14200):250/29/-69][54432(16570):265/21/-78]Noway this is normal! I think NOAA webmaster is playing with html tags since 10 days ago, probably not knowing that there're programs which depend on the webpage code stability. Maybe Damian and/or the maker of ServInfo could send a kind email to NOAA asking them if it would be possible to maintain the previous tag, or at least to communicate an eventual change before it's done.

Anyone know why we have not heard from Damian yet? This is obviously a problem. There are numerous threads on this forum talking about this.As far as to where it happens... it really makes no difference. In online mode I've had it happen at most airports. I don't know if the string is coming from the reporting station or ActiveSky. It looks like something is trying to set a Courier font at size 5 at the beginning of the strings.http://www.emotipad.com/emoticons/Help.gif

At 12:10 today, 15 minutes before your post, Damian posted his fix to this issue. The new format is coming from the NOAA server.Hope this helps,JimActiveSky Support
