|I thought I would include my Wview setup. I don't know if it's unique or anything. But it might give people a baseline to start with... as I have a feeling I'm using hardware that might be a little less powerful than you might otherwise consider using.
My goal was to have as small a footprint as possible, both so I could use as meager a box as possible and so that the box used as little Wattage as possible when it was running 24/7. In my dream of dreams, I'd love to have the whole thing using a Solar panel or something so that it was totally energy self-sufficient and able to work in a very robust environment.
Weather Station: Vantage Pro 2 with USB data logger.
Wview Host Computer: A Pentium II, @ 266MHz with 384MB of RAM and 5.7GB Hard drive.
I'm running Debian Linux : "Linux version 2.4.27-2-386 (email@example.com) (gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-12))"
The installation with required wview libraries (plus a few that I installed but realised later aren't needed) is currently taking up about 780MB.
The whole thing is hosted on my external web service. They provide me with unlimited bandwidth, hard drive storage and database space. All for like $2/month... so it's pretty nice!
