Historical interest

I've done a little bit of work on the website to start an interface for viewing the actual data that I capture from the WS3600. You can see an example over here. It still needs some work — an interface for navigating to specific dates being the obvious requirement. It will take a parameter that is the date you want to view. An example of this would be viewing the data for New Year's Eve last year.

Having now written the code to do this I'm starting to wonder if capturing the data once every minute is a little excessive. While I do intend to add a facility that will summarise data for a day, week or month (giving a useful view without having to look at the raw data) I still have a feeling that making a record of the values this frequently gains little.

I'll have to have a look around some other sites that contain such data and see what they do.
