Here's what the question would look like:

I bought a decibel meter off amazon recently (http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Measure-Tester-Pressure-Decibel/dp/B00CPKSE38/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1436376590&sr=8-1&keywords=wensn) which outputs db measurements to a microsd card. I opened the sd card's content on my computer and encountered four separate *.wsn files, two of which I created and the other two apparently made by the manufacturer in testing perhaps. Anyway, did a google search for the .wsn file extension and can't find anything but something called a "whoopsie skin file" which doesn't appear to be what I'm looking for. Can anyone help me find a way to parse this file? I imagine it simply contains a table of information with two columns (db level and time)

Here's the link to the file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0yWXI3LgLr4ME1DeUs4SDFMX1E/view?usp=sharing

Which site should I ask this on?

Update: - The db measurement device's manufacturer is "wensn", which clearly accounts for the file name extension. I've found two leads so far:

but both are for parsing usb streams from the device, rather than the static wsn files. I'm guessing I could utilize this code to parse the wsn files, but I don't know how to do that yet.

    I fear there's no SE site for that. Since it's a custom made file by the developers of the product, the product's support forum is the proper place to ask. – ShaWiz Jul 8 '15 at 17:48

    I would like to see the contents of the whoopsie skin file. – Won't Jul 8 '15 at 18:28
  • @Won't WhoopSee Skin File Extension. "The WhoopSee app seems to be obsolete product without support from developer, or distributor." Not quite what you were thinking I imagine... – Diminutive Colossus Jul 8 '15 at 18:39
  • Oddly enough, I visited the manufacturer's website looking for a user's manual there, then it blocked my IP address (it notified me of this in an alert dialog...) – Diminutive Colossus Jul 8 '15 at 18:42
  • Including the manufacturer in the text of the question would be helpful. – Josh Caswell Jul 8 '15 at 18:43
  • @TinyGiant no, the whoopsie skin file extension is not the correct file type. It just shares the same named extension – boulder_ruby Jul 8 '15 at 19:19
  • @boulder_ruby My comment was a response to the comment by Won't. – Diminutive Colossus Jul 8 '15 at 19:43
  • @TinyGiant that site is dead, and not only for you (no IP ban, just a regular crash of a site) – ShaWiz Jul 8 '15 at 20:32
  • Anyway, that website is BAD - e.g. see this - hacked, and if archived this way it means it stayed hacked for long days, even weeks. I would have really stayed away from such company. – ShaWiz Jul 8 '15 at 20:36

If you would include an extract from the file (probably in a hex format), you could try to ask this on Reverse Engineering. You should then clearly explain what the file looks like (by giving an example / extract) and what that data represents.
