      That is interesting. It does appear that the uploads do cease for a
      period of exactly one hour.

      Do you have any sort of scheduled tasks or power-saving settings
      enabled? Any reason the PC would be busy during that period? Virus
      scan?

      If we assume that it is not your PC causing the problems, either
      Heavyweather is not writing the file or WUHU is not detecting the
      change.

      In order to isolate the problem, if you could install a file
      monitoring application like the one listed here:

      http://www.download.com/FileGuard/3000-2248_4-10429462.html?tag=lst-0-
      3

      We can determine whether or not the currdat.lst file is being written.

      After installation, specifiy the folder that currdat.lst file is
      stored (usually c:\heavyweather), enter lst for the file type, then
      hit start.

      As it detects changes to the file, it will post a message in the list
      box. If you could let this run overnight, we may be able to find out
      where the failure is.

      Thanks.

      I forgot to mention, when using FileGaurd, you also need to click the check box to enable events to monitor, File Modifications before hitting start. Thanks.

          I'll give it a go, but I don't have time the next couple of weeks.
          I'll move everything to a dedicated computer this autumn. Hopefully
          that will cure most of it. What I start to believe is that this is
          no problem as long as the PC is 'awake'. Looks to me the gaps is
          only present when XP pops out to the welcome screen.

          I'll let you know what is going on. Like I mentioned, I'll be
          traveling the next couple of weeks.
          has anybody else seen anything similar to what I'm seeing here?

          I also have one question what operating system to run on a dedicated
          weather PC? What do you guys think? WIN98, NT, 2000, XP?

          regards
