FS9 Online Weather

Recommended Posts

I have three (3) hdd's on my system, all with their own xp os's installed. I notice that there was an xp update installed last night (Australian Time) and since then I cannot get fs9 to download real-world weather updates on any of the drives (each drive has fs9 installed). I have known the Jeppeson site to go down for a couple of hours in the past but this is almost 24 hours. Anyone else having this problem?Jon S

Thanks for the 'heads-up'. I actually posted a question in the Active Sky forum on this subject and you have answered my question with your post. I was never completely sure if the fs online weather updates and the Active Sky were interdependent. AS rocks.Jon S.

the seattle area was hit by a high wind storm causing over 1,000,000 homes and businesses to loose power thursday night (12/14/06). 100,000s are still without power on 12/16/06.as microsoft is located in the seattle area, it is likely that the weather server got hit and hasn't yet been brought back on line.--

Im totaly green when it comes to this but, does the weather come from microsoft seervers, i thought it came from jeppesen something rather.Like i said i know nothing on the topic, I use activesky and was never too concerned as to where there servers are from(although i guess it would be goood to know) and now am pretty curious, where does the wetaher info come from in the world(where am I connecting too wehen it is updated?)

Hi, We have 2 servers whose locations will remain private. Those 2 servers are pulling data from many different sources. The weather is updated at the top of each hour and it takes 15-20 minutes to gather it all, and get it ready for you to use.Thanks,Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/Active Sky V6 Development Team Active Sky V6 Proud SupporterHiFi Beta TeamRadar Contact Supporter: http://www.jdtllc.com/AirSource Member: http://www.air-source.us/FSEconomy Member:http://www.fseconomy.com/

I never connected the hairy landings at ksea I saw on our local TV news in Oz (A320, if I recall) with the server problem. Beats me why the airport was'nt closed, early on. I'll bet the airport dry cleaners were doing a roaring trade.Jon S.
