I am using the generic weather underground upload script at: http://www.wunderground.com/windowsinstall/wu-upload.pl (though this error comes from Device::LaCrosse::WS23xx). Received this error for a while after reconnecting my console. wu-upload.pl: eval( _time_convert($BCD) ) died: wu-upload.pl: Internal error: bad datetime '0' at /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1/Device/LaCrosse/WS23xx.pm line 251. at /home/jeremy/bin/wu-upload.pl line 129 Happy to supply more details if it happens again. perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi

Sorry about that. By "reconnecting your console", do you mean that something happened and your WSxxxx console got reset? If so, I'm wondering if this happened while reading a daily max/min timestamp that hadn't yet been initialized. Show quoted text

Does that mean it is no longer happening? In other words: do you need an immediate fix? If it's still happening, this might help me track it down: 1) Change WS23xx.pm line 251 from 'die' to 'croak' 2) setenv PERL5OPT=MCarp=verbose 3) rerun your script 4) post the stacktrace result here (eg by replying to this email) I no longer have a WS23xx unit -- mine died in August -- but I'll see if I can find a way to handle this condition better.

Device::LaCrosse::WS23xx v0.07 is now on CPAN. It might take a while (a day?) for it to get indexed and to propagate. This version has slightly better error handling for the condition you describe: it might give more info, and it will return 0 (the epoch) instead of die()ing.

Yep, it was disconnected from power for a little while. Show quoted text

Quite possible. Show quoted text

Pretty much. I just thought it was worth reporting the bug. It's pretty minor if it only occurs for a short while after the console has been reset. Though potentially frustrating if you don't know why it's not working at that time. Thanks, I'll let you know if it reoccurs. Jeremy
