Re: Will WUHU work unattended with dial-up?
- Since you plan to only upload to WU, be sure to un-check the other
servers so they are not triggering a dial-up as well.
You would probably set it up for an hourly upload and a quick
disconnect time in Windows dialing.
I will be around this weekend if you have troubles.

- If you're only going to choose one service, make sure you evaluate all of them. PWSweather.com and CWOP have advantages. PWSweather.com gives you the graphs and archives you're looking for plus gets your data on weatherforyou.com and anythingweather.com. CWOP data is displayed through findu.com plus is distributed to the NOAA which further shares the data across a number of services.
