Wish List / Ability to change background color of graph
« on: May 25, 2014, 08:31:17 PM »
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,

Kor

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

Support / Making changes to a roast after completion
« 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!

Support / Profile vs Program
« on: January 13, 2014, 09:33:11 PM »
I've been using RoastMaster since mid 2013 and am really loving it. Unfortunately I've never really taken the time to learn to use it in a way that I can utilize all of its functionality. My roaster has been a homemade roaster until last week when I purchased a Hottop KN-8828B-2K. Having a roaster with si much more control over the roast has galvanized me to learn RoastMaster better.

I think I'm going to have a lot of questions, stupid ones judging from what I've been able to find on these pages in the way of answers. What I want to know first is, what is the difference between a Program and a Profile. I've searched everywhere examined both in RoastMaster and fail to find a difference.
