Pi, Python or GoogleDocs?

by rob drizzle on Sun Dec 09, 2012 11:32 pm

I'm running the Google Docs version of the BMP085 code that was available on the WebIDE. All is well for a day or so then the spreadsheet stops updating. Because the Pi "sleeps" after a while and the process goes to the background (or at least I think) I can't see if the python code is still functioning as intended. I can see that the process is still going but not if the spread sheet is not updating. I tried to increase the upload time to make sure that the google spreadsheet was not hitting a maximum row problem. But still after a day or so, no updating.

I can't tell what is causing the halt but I suspect that google docs is the weak link. Has anyone else seen this?

never heard of this, best thing is to run it from a console and see what the python errors are
