I have not logged data to a channel for some months as its monitored conservertory plants that died over winter, having restocked ive plugged in the h/w and looked for new data - nada!

Ive also tried to clear the historic data - again - nada it tells me its doing it but when i return to the puter there is data going back to january in both public and private views??

has my account timed out due to inactivity or do i need to get the powerfull glasses and start cracking boxes to check wiring and soldering??

thanks in advance

ThingSpeak would not close or disable your account without notification. I suspect your account is still active.

The best way to test if the account is still active is to attempt to update your channel.
In a web browser, try
with your API key to make sure your channel is working.
It should update your channel feed, and you will see a new point on your plots.

I'm sorry to hear about the death of your plants, I hope you can get the monitors working again.
