    Thanks both, I managed to solve my problem yesterday afternoon, but then didn't have time to post anything to the forum.

    It seems that the Web API Client always appends a numeric value to the end...

    I am happy with the way that I can see the last server reboot time on my noticeboard and decided to try a few other things; the TinyWeb server supports CGI, so I have written a Perl script to pull...

    I thought that I would provide an update a few weeks on:

    The good news is that Cortex is stable and the system hasn't rebooted itself since I rebuilt it a month ago; I would prefer to be sure that...

    Well the system seems to now be stable, it hasn't rebooted itself since I rebuilt the PC two weeks ago. Perhaps the reboot issue *is* associated with the solar logger, another USB-connected serial...

    I've tried to isolate it a bit more without any success, I have checked all the obvious things and can't see what might be trying to connect to a socket.
    One more curious thing that I have found is...

    Thanks, I hadn't seen those connection possibilities.
    However, On Initialise Complete only seems to offer 'Annunciate' options, and I'm looking for message output - am I missing something?

    Cortex 'uptime'

    The batch files that run when our Cortex server starts up write entries in a log file recording the date and time of each event; over the years this has proven useful when investigating problems,...

    Yes, I found that on Google too, but that doesn't tell me what Cortex is trying to do when it happens. So I can't determine if this is an issue and was hoping that either Karam or Vivian could shed...

    I decided to reinstall Windows 10 from scratch last weekend (3rd March) to make sure that I had a 'solid' platform for reloading Cortex.

  10. Missing Cortex logs and defibrillator rebooting PC

    It was suggested that I look at the Cortex logs while trying to sort out my noticeboard problem (after a PC rebuild/Cortex reinstall) - see earlier thread.

    What I found when I looked at them was a...

    No, I am talking about displaying the temperature measured by an external Idratek module on a Cortex noticeboard.

    Anyway, here's an update: I re-installed Cortex W10 (10.0.04) and then upgraded...

    Hi Karam,
    No - I mean that the updates come through, and appear on the app, if I use the 'Test' mechanism to send them.
    Everything was working as expected previously, but not since I have restored...

    Android Noticeboard App

    Hi,

    Last year our old 'weather centre' in the kitchen packed up and I installed Karam's Noticeboard app to give us the external temperature on our mobiles.
    All was working well until our Cortex...

    Hello Karam, stretching the lower end of the light level curve is a better way of describing what I called 'granularity' - I've attached the node profile.

    I'll have a think and try to define my...

    I use that mode of operation for the lamppost in the driveway, but this only gives one operating period (this is every evening for us).
    I then have a virtual light object set to switch only on light...

    Actually I may use the PLT instead - this has firmware version 03, so hopefully will also be suitable.

    Thank you for the clarification Karam - the LTS has firmware version 05 so this should do what I need.

    I have considered replacing the PLT with a PLH to give me the pulse counting.
    But I am slightly confused - the catalogue page for the PLH says it supports pulse counting, but the datasheet doesn't...

    I am planning to connect both gas and electricity meters to Cortex and have been looking at which modules have spare inputs that I can use.

    The Cortex PC was shutdown sometime after the power failed; when we have a power cut it's often for a few hours, so the UPS has a power-down threshold set.

    When Cortex shutdown I had expected the...
