1965 - 1969 / Re: NZ weather summary October 1969
« Last post by tich on October 15, 2018, 08:47:39 PM »
October 1969:  [/color]The 10th was an unusually cold day in eastern districts and about Cook Strait, with snow showers to low levels.


Read about that day on a Chch Press microfilm, and the article about the cold snap stated that Kaikoura's maximum on the 10th was only 40F (5C), it's coldest for any month for 15 years, while Chch only reached 42F (6C) in the afternoon, and there were snow showers in the city in the morning. The cold southerly we've just had was certainly unseasonable, but definitely not as wintry as 10th October 1969.

General Computing / Mini Windows 10 PC's running a weatherstation
« Last post by TonyC on October 15, 2018, 06:51:44 PM »
I see you can purchase direct from China, Mini Pc's (about 12cm x 12cm in size, no fan) with a genuine copy of Windows 10 Home 64bit installed, for about $NZ135 which has sparked my interest in perhaps using one to run Weather Display.
Although they only have 2gb of RAM, they run at 1.92mhz so should handle WD well and maybe will run an IP camera as well. The one I'm looking at has Wifi as well as an ethernet connection, 3 USB ports, SD card, VGA and HDMI video output.  I've looked at a Youtube review and teardown of the Z83 and it looks to be a well made product for the price.

Has anyone already gone down this track and can give feedback on how succesful it's been?

regards,

Tony C
