Thank you all so much,
Ive got a ton of options and its made me think a lot more about the data
rates vs reliabilty vs simplicity. File locking was something I had not
even considerd as a problem.
Co-incidently my demon app dumps all its data to an archive file, time
and date stamped, so as you suggested Alan I could simply use that. (I
like that idea :-) )
The data rate being a few KBs at exact syncronised 5 mins intervals, the
timing of the data readings being paramount otherwise syncronisation
with server data updates is lost. Processing is a whole other ballgame.
Kents suggestion is an interesting one, and being still a relative
Python newbe, It got me thinking as well.
Phew, well better fire up eric & start codeing
