Exclamation Servers Damaged (Mostly affecting LMO ?)
Posted by: cutty - 2021-03-10, 19:13 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (9)

A fire early today has destroyed one of OVHcloud’s Strasbourg data centres and part of a second one, the French cloud provider’s CEO, Octave Klaba, wrote in a tweet. He confirmed that all the people working at the site were safe.
OVHcloud is the biggest European-based cloud services provider, competing against U.S. giants Amazon Web Services, Microsoft’s Azure and Google Cloud, which dominate the market.

Major issues with our adjunct, lightningmaps.org.
Info is LMO will be offline for several days.

BT servers seem ok at this Posting time.

Exclamation Suche System RED oder BLUE
Posted by: uwbeinternational - 2021-03-05, 14:22 - Forum: Non-English - No Replies

Hallo Zusammen

Vor einigen Jahren hatte ich einmal das System Grey betrieben und damals mit einem KIT bestellt.
Ging alles ganz gut, doch durch mehrere Umzüge ging alles leider verloren. 

Nun muss ich von vorne beginnen und meine Löterfahrungen sind derzeit etwas eingeschränkt bis unmöglich. 
Daher suche ich nach einem möglichem komplett fertigem und einsatzbereitem System RED oder BLUE. 

Vielleicht kann mir hierbei jemand helfen oder hat eines abzugeben?
Bestellen geht derzeit ja leider nicht. 

Grüsse aus der Schweiz

  LMO URL drops "Archive by day"?
Posted by: stixpjr - 2021-02-25, 01:20 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - No Replies

I was trying to "deep link" to a couple of lighting strikes on a particular day that likely happened to blow up a telephone line surge protector - and I find that the "Archive by day" selection in the "ar" and/or "as" URL parameters appear to be ignored?

This is easy to replicate; view a specific day (2020-10-30 was the day I'm interested in, for the greater Sydney region), copy and paste the URL, and you'll find the view resets to a 1hr realtime view. Tested on Firefox and Chrome, with the same behavior.

  How to get alerts of fault or missing GPS
Posted by: jchonig - 2020-12-30, 17:27 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (2)

I'd like a progmatic way of finding out if my System BLUE is having issues.   Such as a fault, or GPS not working.

Is there a way to query the device for status so I could generate an e-mail from a script?

Before I go and start parsing the HTML, is there an easier way?

Thanks.

Jeff

  Power via POE Splitter
Posted by: jchonig - 2020-12-24, 14:01 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (6)

Has anyone tried powering a System BLUE via a POE (802.3af or 802.3at) splitter?

Since I have a POE capable switching, this seems like a good option to simplify the wiring.

Thanks.

  Question on lightning.
Posted by: kalyubave92 - 2020-12-16, 16:28 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (1)

Has anyone on here ever had their tent struck by lightning? If so, what happens? Does it ravage the tent? Were you okay inside and the tent poles channeled the electricity into the ground? Or are you pretty much toast if your tent gets struck with you in it?
I’m curious. Last weekend I got caught in a wicked thunderstorm that seemed to strike very close to my tent. I was on top of a barren plateau so the tent was one of the taller objects around. I minimized my space and stayed on my sleeping pad for insulation, but was still terrified until the storm passed. What is proper protocol in this situation?Note: Link removed by Admin

  How "wide" is a bolt of lightning?
Posted by: lokaupdes34 - 2020-12-16, 16:11 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

It seems like when you see clips of lightning striking in the American Midwest, the lightning is far away and appears to be fairly large in width given the distance from the camera. And then when you see clips of a tree that is 20 feet away getting struck, the bolts of lightning appear about the same width as those that could be miles away.
So my question is, is the apparent similarity in width between distant bolts and close bolts just a coincidence or a case of selective memory on my part? And most importantly, on average, how "wide" is a bolt of lightning?
