Weather Station Web Interface Upgrade

Davis Instruments, the manufacturer of our on-range  weather station, is migrating to a new version of its application programmer interface (API).

On or about September 28, 2018, we migrated our Davis WeatherLink account to the new version, and data from stations using the new version are no longer accessible using the old versions of Davis pages. (About 2/3 of all stations are now on the new version.)

For current range weather conditions, instead of using < http://www.weatherlink.com/user/largc/ >, please use < https://www.weatherlink.com/embeddablePage/show/c26756318df147f1b02a8db6f063e8e8/wide >.

For a map of weather stations, instead of using < https://www.weatherlink.com/map.php >, please use < https://www.weatherlink.com/map >.

FYI: I copied the text below from the Davis site at WeatherLink.com .

WeatherLink API Update

As our move to WeatherLink 2.0 proceeds, we are approaching an important update that will affect anyone using the www.weatherlink.com/xml.php. This may affect you if you use our API (Application Programming Interface) to:

  • Display data on a personal or community web page.
  • Share data with a 3rd party service that is dependent on the API.
  • Access your weather data programmatically from our servers.

The www.weatherlink.com/xml.php API will not function properly once an account has moved to WeatherLink 2.0. The api.weatherlink.com/v1, available in JSON and XML formats, should be used instead. Api.weatherlink.com works for WeatherLink 1.0 and 2.0 and can be used immediately, but it requires the use of a unique API token.

To generate a unique API token, perform the following steps. You can also watch the Generate API Token video

  1. Log in to WeatherLink 2.0 using existing WeatherLink user credentials.
  2. Access the account information in the right sidebar, under the username and account picture.
  3. On the account information page, click Generate API Token.
  4. Fill in the required fields and click the Generate button.
  5. The unique API token will display in the API Token field.

These important changes will help us make continual improvements to the API so that you can access your personal weather station data or share it with 3rd party services faster and with maximum reliability.

If you are aware of any person or 3rd party that may use www.weatherlink.com/xml.php, please help us spread the news of the upcoming changes.

 

Thank you,

All of us at Davis Instruments

SIG SAUER Issues Voluntary Upgrade of P320 Pistol

SIG SAUER Issues Voluntary Upgrade of P320 Pistol

P320 pistol meets requirements for industry and government safety standards; performance enhancements optimize function, safety, and reliability.

Newington, NH (August 8, 2017) – The P320 meets U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

The design of the SIG SAUER P320 overcomes the most significant safety concern in striker-fired pistols today: the practice of pressing the trigger for disassembly. This can be performed with a round in the chamber which has resulted in numerous incidents of property damage, physical injury, and death. The disassembly process of the P320, however, uses a take-down lever rather than pressing the trigger, eliminating the possibility of discharge during the disassembly process.

Recent events indicate that dropping the P320 beyond U.S. standards for safety may cause an unintentional discharge.

As a result of input from law enforcement, government and military customers, SIG has developed a number of enhancements in function, reliability, and overall safety including drop performance. SIG SAUER is offering these enhancements to its customers. Details of this program will be available at sigsauer.com on Monday, August 14, 2017.

The M17 variant of the P320, selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), is not affected by the Voluntary Upgrade.

“SIG SAUER is committed to our approach on innovation, optimization, and performance, ensuring we produce the finest possible products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Durability, reliability and safety, as well as end-user confidence in the SIG SAUER brand are the priorities for our team.”

LARGC Style Guide

Let’s establish consistent style throughout our publications.

Everything is negotiable, but please include your reasons where appropriate.

Use of Certain Terms

  • cease fire”—reference to break not in quotes; use quotes for reference to what is called
  • down range—not “downrange”
  • guns—includes firearms and air guns; do not use “weapon” (guns are tools), preferred over “arms” (black powder rules); device that propels a projectile
    • firearms—includes handguns and long guns; use explosive charge to propel projectile
    • handguns—includes semi-automatic pistols, revolvers, and may include air guns that may be fired using a single hand
    • long guns—includes rifles and shotguns
  • misfire—define as “failure to fire” or “refusal to discharge”?
  • projectile or bullet? or projectile for black powder only?
  • shooter—preferred; assume all customers, guests, etc. will be shooting
    • new shooter—an inexperienced shooter, not a new admission to the range
  • shooting station—not “bench”, which may cause confusion with the white bench seats at the white safety line
  • range—use “the Range” instead of “we”; “down range”; “here” instead of “at this property” or “at this facility”
  • Range Master—the Range Master, not “rangemaster”
  • Range Safety Officer

ejection or EXPULSION?

Capitalization

In the Range Safety Rules, capitalize leading terms ALWAYS and NEVER (preferred over “DO NOT”). Note that it is preferable to describe what people should do (“ALWAYS…”) rather than leaving them guessing by stating what they should not do (“NEVER…”).
