Welcome to The Weather Machine at NecroBones.net! NOTE: My weather
station is now offline, as of mid 2011, after running for nearly 8 years. Some components are failing,
and I decided to discontinue. However, this page is remaining up so that the information is still available
The Weather Machine is an
Oregon Scientific WMR-968 weather station (these can be found for significantly
cheaper than the suggested retail, if you look hard enough or get one off of
which is a collection of wireless solar-powered (with battery backup) weather sensors. The
receiver device consists of a wireless receiver, and a touch-screen
LCD for displaying the weather information, and also a serial output
port. With a basic straight-through serial cable, it can be connected
to a computer for logging and analysis.
This is where the Weather Machine scripts come in. These are a set
of scripts for doing the logging and display of the collected weather
information here on the website. If you're running a linux server and
have a WMR-968 weather station, feel free to give my perl scripts a try.
