    Lgbeno got a reaction from Fred in Cheap solar battery + wireless IoT node   
    For grins I made this to test out on my own https://upverter.com/imp-guru/f43d6e493161a233/picoSolar-Boost-Converter/
     
    I'll probably put them on Tindie if anyone else is interested, otherwise feel free to grab the gerbers from upverter and order them yourself.  This time I used TPS61097A-33, it doesn't have this down conversion feature but my hope is that a NiCd in a 1xAAA unit won't exceed 3.8V.

    Thanks!
     
    A toilet flush is usually 3gpm for about 40 seconds, some of the other pulses are me running water at the sink while washing dishes.  The very small 0.06 gpm pulses are probably error.  The way that my algorithm works is that it detects a minimum and maximum field over a very long amount of time, then calculates the halfway point as a threshold.  It then counts the number of times that the field has a rising edge through that threshold.  Sometimes the field just oscillates at very low frequency and creates these pulses. I have no idea if it is a small water leak or just some other external field.

    No problems, Feedback like this is exactly what I need to make the site better.
     
    For now it is true that users need to be logged in to view the dedicated stream on the analog.io website.  In the future I do plan to add functionality for anonymous users as well but there are some features that I'm looking to develop first
     
    One think that will change in the next few days is I will be converting all stream id's to base 36 numbers, right now they are just base 10.  It's part of my obsession with short, tweet friendly urls.

    I spent some time tonight adding these features. Now you can click on the stream title and it will open a new tab directed at the appropriate stream in analog.io.
     
    Also I cleaned up the embed links view including using the page title

     
    Another new feature is an index view of all of the links from a particular host (such as forum.43oh.com) with embedded streams.
     
    Here's the index for 43oh

    Seems to be working great, I'll add some data to another thread as well!  
     

     
    The other aspect of the site is that it tracks pingbacks to the forum so if you embed data into a forum, a link to it will appear on analog.io
     
    Here's an example of the stream that Bluehash embedded:
     

     
    I just need to clean up the parser so that it doesn't include the link parameters, otherwise the list may get very long...

    Hey @@bluehash, glad to see the forum back up and running!  Must have been a long few weeks for you.
     
    One question, I sent you a DM awhile back.  I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't last in translation, right now the message says:
     
    You cannot replyAll other recipients have left this conversation
     
     Not a big deal, if you're not interested in testing what the DM is about, just lef me know, I completely understand.  I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't lost in the shuffle.  Resending message just in case.

    I'm also of the same opinion as @@spirilis, I like the idea of one forum to rule them all.  It's easy enough to filter out the discussions that I'm not interested in and sometimes there are great discussions that are not related to any of the uC platforms.

    Not ignorant at all, you're exactly right.  I use phant as the backend only then my new front end interacts with the phant server's API.  My goal is exactly to make it all more user friendly and also create a social environment where people can share their data, make comments/annotations about it and fork the data scheme to create another instance of the data set.
     
    For example, I've seen a lot of people implementing weather stations on data.sparkfun.com.  The typical weather station has 9-15 data fields, each time someone wants to create this at data.sparkfun.com, they need to re-enter each of those field names into the form, now it is just a simple fork of the dataset that came before it.  Also my assumption is that those who are interested in weather enough to create a weather station are probably interested in telling their friends about it and also finding other people across the globe with the same passion and looking at their data.
     
    At least thats what I'm thinking, now is the test to see if users agree.

    Hi Everyone,
     
    Awhile back I posted some info on a project that I was working on called imp.guru.  Basically it was a plotting front end for data.sparkfun.com where you can enter your stream public key and then plot data.  In my mind imp.guru was pretty successful, so far users have added  219 streams, some of then receiving more than 2000 views and the site gets about 100 visits per day.  That's nothing for most other web apps but considering that I haven't really done that much marketing, I think that it is a success, especially for what I would consider a "Minimum Viable Product"
     
    Anyway, for the last 4 months I've been working on a new site called analog.io.  I'm getting ready to release it to the public but want to get a few more users involved.  @@cubeberg has been already using it for some time and as far as I know, I think that he is liking it:
    http://forum.43oh.com/topic/5851-wireless-security-system-iot/#entry54389
     
    I definitely wouldn't say that it is perfect but I really need some more beta users to help me prioritize the next set of features.  If anyone is interested in signing up, please give it a try at the following link:
    http://analog.io/users/sign_up
     
    One thing that is lacking right now is marketing content for the site, I'm still figuring out how I want to present it concisely.  But I'm attaching some screen shots so you can know what it is like before signing up.
     
    One other note that makes analog.io totally different than any other IoT cloud service is that it has a distributed backend based on the open source library called phant.  What that means is that you can run a phant server on any hardware that you would like and analog.io can connect to it.  You could even host Phant on Raspberry Pi or a Beagle Bone and never let the data leave your LAN.  I'd definitely be interested in individuals who would like to test that out.
     
    Otherwise there are other fun things as well such as iPython notebooks for doing data processing in the cloud and the ability to host your own isolated phant server on a dedicated Virtual Private server.
     
    Very interested in your questions and comments!

    I forgot to answer your question regarding Phant serving webpages, yes it does if you add the "phant-manager-http" option. If you do this it will have a page that looks the same as data.sparkfun.com and will show stream data in tabular format, no graphs.
