    I tried to run the code of ccc-gisstemp-0.4.1 – as root under Linux (Suse Linux 10.2 – kernel (Linux ibk-node14 2.6.18.2-34-default #1 SMP Mon Nov 27 11:46:27 UTC 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    ) and python 2.5

    However it produced an error:

    Now: what did I do wrong?

    Er, I was going to say, this is Issue 65 again, but it’s not quite, I think.

    Jorge, can you join the mailing list (I think you’ve done that already) and post this again, and we can discuss where to go from there, if you have a little time to spare?

    A good first step would be to use the most recent version from SVN.

    I am planning a new release.

  3. Andrejs Vanags Says:

    I cant run your code it crashes always on not being able to find v2.mean.zip
    I waited a couple months to see if the file would appear but no.
    Couldn’t you all at least post an alternate backup in case the latest file is not there? as it its, your project is completely dead on the water, it just crashes without providing any thing use full. How have you al been able to use it in the last three months?

  4. Nick.Barnes Says:

    Andrejs, the problem there is that GHCN moved on to version 3 – a different file and a different format – in 2010, and moved the version 2 files in preparation for retiring them some months ago. We updated ccc-gistemp to be able to use the GHCN v3 file back in 2010, but I didn’t merge that into the mainstream until last week: we’ve been busy with other matters.

    If you sync the current sources from googlecode, you should be able to run ccc-gistemp which is fully up-to-date with respect to this and other changes in the GISTEMP algorithm (in addition to some other improvements).
