OK. Thanks Danny! It should have been obvious to me.

Support / How do I turn off Inventory Warning?
« on: May 02, 2021, 02:37:53 PM »
Is inventory warning something I can turn off. I’m seeing a number in a little red circle beside “Beans” in the main menu. I think I remember turning this on a long time ago but now I don’t want it. I’ve looked in the settings section and can’t find anywhere to turn it off. Should I be able to do this somewhere? Thanks!

Hi Danny,

Thanks for your suggestions! They pointed me in the right direction and my investigations were  a bit embarrassing. The first thing I discovered was that Roastmaster was waiting to be updated in the App Store of my iPad! I installed it and also removed and reinstalled OneDrive. Since then DB uploads through OneDrive have worked perfectly. Thank you!

Hi Danny!

Could you give me any tips exporting my DB to Onedrive? When I try it says Uploading... on the bottom of the window and my DB name and Waiting... at the top of the same window. It never completes. I don't know how it should behave if there is already a file of the same name at the destination but there is none.

I've been using Google Drive with no problems but Onedrive would be more convenient.

I'm accessing OneDrive from the latest version of Windows 10. RoastMaster is running on an iPad Pro running iPadOS 14.3

Thanks! I hope you are staying safe and doing well!

Even though it has been a long time since I started this thread, I thought I should declare that the white background choice has been a stellar success for me. I no longer have any problem reading the analyzer screen. Thank you Danny!!

Thanks Danny, I can't wait to try!

Hi Danny,

You may be right about a white background not working that well. Nevertheless, I would love to try so if you can make that a choice in the future, that would be splendid!

Hi Danny,

Although I find the graph in the roast analyzer very readable indoors, when I am outdoors where I roast I find it very difficult to read, especially the target roast, even though I have the opacity for same turned all the way up. Knowing you, I'm sure you did a lot of trial and error to come up with the background color that you did. However, I wonder if a light background might not work better for me in high ambient light areas.  I guess I could try making that curve a very light color too.

Thanks Danny. That's a big help! I'll forge on.

An explanation of the schema would probably be helpful as well : ) but I don't want to take much of your time. I can always muddle through.

Support / Working with the database
« on: February 26, 2014, 11:22:36 PM »
Hi Danny,

I exported my database to dropbox and am exploring it on my PC using a DBM called SQLstudio. I've also done a brief test executing a basic query with Python which was pretty straightforward.

I couldn't seem to quite figure out the timestamp data type you use for date/time data. Is this a unix epoch time? I tried using the date time function with the unixepoch switch and this got me closer then other things I tried but this year becomes 1980 something and the time is off as well.

I'm also finding the number of tables that I need to link to, even to print out a list of beans in my inventory, a bit daunting. If you have any tips for handling this I would appreciate it. I'm sure you must have a bunch of views defined to handle the associations.

Thanks Danny

Thanks Danny. That was easy! I was looking for some way to do it in the analyzer window.

That will be fun to fool around with the DB. If I actually do it, I'm sure I'll have more questions. I've done quite a lot with Oracle databases and SQL, a bit with MySQL but never SQLite. At least it's all SQL based. I've also used the Python cx_Oracle extension a bit. It looks like SQLite language bindings are built into Python.

« on: February 22, 2014, 10:38:43 PM »
Hi Danny,

I wondered, I often make stupid mistakes in recording a roast, especially toward the end when things are happening quickly and I'm still trying to record temperatures as well as power and fan settings. For example, today I accidentally recorded the beginning of second crack when I meant to record the end of first.

And one other thing. Would it be OK if I exported the DB file and created reports from it in Windows? I code a bit in Python these days though I'm mostly rusty from not doing it enough. I think creating a report from the RoastMaster DB would be a fun way to practice my programming skills. Of course, if you don't want people doing that I understand.

And there's one more thing : ) Thanks for the new profile tutorial. It's very useful and very well done!

I just finished the video on roasting in the analyzer. It's an excellent video and really helps me get a clearer picture of how to use RM effectively! I will watch it again.

And yes, a video on the anatomy of a profile sounds very helpful! And I'm looking forward to watching "Creating a Profile from a Roat"
