Mmm ok, I’ll have to do some more testing. I have been unable to re-create this.
We don’t all life in the US. Personally, I much prefer the European dates dd/mm/yyy. I vote to stick with the default local and let users change if they prefer. Do you know if the Pi does any autodetection of IP location to infer NTP time timezone? I don’t think it does. When we power up a new Pi with the pre built SD card here in the UK it gets the correct time from NTP. Do you know what happens in the US? Is it essential for you to set the timezone to make Emoncms work? What happens if you don’t set the timezone? / locale?
Ok, good point. However, node-RED does work fine (and is proven stable) with the flows that we use with the version of node currently installed. I have just installed the LTS version of node so I can test. However, it was a hefty 50Mb install. I’m not sure it here is much beneft to force this on all users.
Update: installing nodejs V6.9.1 has broken my nodered :-(. I get error
nodered : Depends: nodejs-legacy (>= 0.10)
