Re: Catch-up mode?
There is a feature to upload data from the console when WUHU is
started. It has not been release as it has not been tested
thoroughly. If you want to test it, send me an email.
This would solve the problem when WUHU is not running. If WUHU is
running but cannot access the Internet this feature would not solve
the problem. You could shutdown WUHU when you lose the Internet to
minimize data loss.
In hindsight, 'catch-up' mode is a feature that should have been
built in from the start. I would need to re-write large portions of
the program to make that possible.
