    Doubt it will be defender.
    Maybe your naming of the log if it has special characters? Try something simple like testlog

    Maybe have a look at the C:\Users\Lenovo folder properties. I suspect you'll find that it is read only, and that if you go to the security tab it will say that access for all applications will exclude 'modify' and 'write'.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry if this is a stupid question or if it's already covered somewhere here but.... Is there a reason why my software says that the roast is stalling when my ROR hits 4?

    What hardware and software are you using on what computer/OS? Has it worked properly before? If so did you change anything just before the problem showed up?

    Argh sorry for the serious lack of details. I'm using the Coffee Snobs software, with the USB Temperature Data Logger that I bought from Andy about 3 years ago. I use Windows XP, and roast on a Has Garanti 5kg.

    It's always done this... however the more I experiment with RoR post-first crack, the more I'm seeing this "stalled roast" message when I hit 4 and below. My understanding is that as long as the RoR is not 0, it should be ok. Am I correct?

    If you haven't already the first thing I would do would be to install the latest Roast Monitor Software and Java as laid out here: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/home-roast...tml#post564488

    Thanks. I have the latest version. I guess I just want to make sure that my thinking is correct regarding ROR still being ok below 4 but above 0?

    You have the latest version of what? The Roast Monitor Software or Java? This is the first time I've heard any mention of a 'stalled roast' message.

    I have no idea what a "stalled roast" error message is, never seen it and doubt it's saying that.

    Can you get a screenshot of it?

    Here you go. Am I missing something obvious?

    Can't say I've ever seen that.

    I'll ask the developer for the math that determines that error. Might be because you are 4C off your target?!?!

    Another question if I may... Is there a way to run the RoR graph line in a larger format. Ie; the opposite axis being measured by increments of 5 as opposed to 20.

    I'm obviously running Coffee Snobs Roast Monitor.

    Thanks!

    No.
    The degrees per minute is shown live on the screen (which is when you need it) and plotted on the graph in the same scale as a reference.

    It really doesn't need resolution, just use it for a reference to the overall rate of the roast.

    Don't know if I'm doing this right, but I seem to have run into a curious quirk of RML. In GrahamK's "default.rml", the countdown timer appears to be based on the nature of the RML code to loop once per second. This worked fine until I changed a setting in Preferences.txt for "Plotting interval in milliseconds" (default is Interval=1000) to Interval=5000. After this change, the RML countdown got very slow. It looks to me as if this Interval setting also controls the rate at which the RML code loops - in my case, RML seems to be looping only once every 5 seconds, in agreement with the Interval setting. Not a big deal, if indeed this is what's happening; just need to be aware of the effect if you're "counting" on the countdown.

    Interesting one.

    I've not seen it happen as only a couple of times I needed to chang the resolution. Once to a much faster plot for water temperature graphing and once for overnight temperature readings of a power supply and neither time did I see or use the timer.

    Please post-up the RML you are using so I can compare apples and apples.
    (use CODE with square brackets then paste it, and close with /CODE also in square brackets)

    Andy, here's the simple RML test I ran:

    Code:
    #     Test effect Interval length has on loop time in RML
    
    
    LOG "Current Elapsed Time is " : M1S_NOW;

    Okay, so I just tested using that (changed slightly to also write to the alert pane).

    Preferences.txt

    Code:
    # Plotting interval in milliseconds.
    interval=5000
    0000test.rml

    Code:
    
    LOG "Current Elapsed Time is " : M1S_NOW;
    Alert "Current Elapsed Time is " : M1S_NOW;
    ...and it works as I expected. Roast Monitor plots every 5 seconds in both the window and the log file.

    What am I missing?

    No argument - your result is the same as what I saw. It just caught me by surprise as I was trying to figure out RML coding; I hadn't expected that a change in the plotting interval would also change the interval at which the RML code runs. Some RML files I've seen, as best as I can tell, depend on each RML "loop" to represent one second (for countdown purposes). When I changed the interval to 5000 msec, the countdown in the RML code took 5x as long as expected. Not a big deal, just something to be aware of. Thanks for your interest in this.
