Re: Roof Install Question

We plan to install the Weather Station on our building roof and were wondering how to handle the short cable length of the temperature probe. Does anyone have a solution to this?

Re: Unable to update remote database info - permission denie

If you are getting permissions problems i.e. access denied and try to run the same edit with "sudo nano" and you get a blank file opening, you are not opening the file you think you are. easiest way is "cd" to the directory your file is in then edit.
