Just responding to the flurry of messages. Sorry to hear that wview has really had the plug pulled on it.
It was a good (if overly time-consuming) project. I've decided that as far as complex software systems go, I'm now a consumer rather than producer.
My old weather station is slowly disintegrating, so for Christmas last year I gave myself a new one, an Aercus WeatherRanger 2, which came with bundled reporting to Wunderground. Not my first choice, but sufficient for me. I do wonder what happens if IBM ever pull the plug on Wunderground, but it's okay for now.
We backyard weather archivists will all need to learn how to do data mashups so we can combine all of the different data from different sources as we change platforms. (I believe wview and weewx share the same format?)
All the best to all of you, and big shout out to Graham Eddy who's advice on this forum helped me out several times. Cheers, mate.
