    Wishing everyone here a safe, happy, and warm holiday season.

    In the live version, the round ornaments are clickable and change an internal state in the controller. Their color changes to reflect the current state.

    The square ornaments are status indicators.

    The dial gauge on top of the tree is my boiler outlet temp, and the 'outdoor' temp is also real.

    The rectangular presents are bar graphs of outdoor temp.

    The other readouts are mostly random unconnected temperature inputs.

    NoFo that's brilliant ! In Europe they will quite often disguise their radiators as part of the room decor (i.e. picture on the wall or statue),bet they never thought about a Christmas tree.

    Merry Christmas nofo. Thanks for all your help in the past few years. Here is a good question for you and I think you are the person who could answer it best. I don't know if I'll be able to completly relay what exactly is happening but here goes. We have just completed 2 homes, that are well insulated and together over 10,000 square feet. We have a digital Tarm 40 with 806 gallons of storage. Each home has in-floor radiant heat, one a slab on grade the other a full basement with radiant. Each home has a 6 panel solar flat panel array on each roof. Each home has a Vieesmann vitolag 200 propane back-up unit for times when no one can fire the Tarm. Seems the propane units are heating the storage tank when it should not be. I would like to put you in contact with the installer because he is the guy to talk to not me as I'm just a carpenter. The Tarm is in the slab on grade home with insulated pipe to the other full basement home. The Tarm heats both building fine but some how thing are backwards or crossed up. If you are willing I will get you contact info for the installer and you two can talk and possibly figure this out. best Sweetheat

    You're welcome - I get more than I contribute. PM me on the other. Lord knows I've had enough unexpected behaviors over the years.

    Oops - my bad, and my apologies to Internet Explorer users out there. The 'live' page works with FireFox, Safari, Chrome, iPhone, and Opera. It doesn't work with Internet Explorer. I don't have the time or the patience to code a separate version for a single browser.

    If there are any IE gurus out there who would like to help, please PM me.

    Merry Christmas to you nofossil! Thank you for the Christmas present for NFCS users ( the graphical interface and widget kit) , and in addition the information you share to all. I sure like playing with the toolkit for the user graphical interface.

    Merry Christmas to all and thanks to all for the Garn installation help! Warm and toasty, and up to 195 today on just two loads (started out about 140).

    Steve and hr....thank you both for all your input! Far as I know you are the only two professional HVAC guys who endlessly seem to help out here.....your comments were extremely helpful. To those I missed, I aplogize....

    Enjoy the day! (Soon we all have to bring in some wood!)
