I suspect something strange is going on with my system.
I noticed that yesterday every time I changed the .things file it would create an log entry.
I noticed just now that was not happening and the value in the offset for astro:sun:myastrothing range event was not updating.
I also noticed that several config values for some dimmers had reverted to old values.
I rebooted the OH pi and now the latest value for the offset is there…but, the dimmer config values are still the old values. But, that’s a different issue…I think.
