    I think the weather feature here is broken right now. It's said 0 degrees (F) for me for the past couple days, when it's been in the 40s and 50s. While it's convenient for most people, I'm sure, I don't even use the weather feature here that much because I have 3 temperature icons in my taskbar at all times so I just look down in the corner of my screen if I went to know the temp.

    It is dependent on MSNBC and the report that it gives back to the database. If it is shut down or the data is screwed up so will the information be screwed up on the site.

    It is working just fine for me.

    It appears that MSNBC and The Weather Channel are blocking the use of their information that is used with the script for the weather so I have removed it from our site until this changes.

    My MSNBC web page says that the weather info that is normally on my customized MSNBC web page has been moved due to the high traffic they are seeing due to the events in Iraq. Wonder if that has something to do with it ?

    That might be the problem. I know several other sites that use the same weather program that we use written by JJR512.com and they aren't getting any data either.

    I will put this back up in a couple of days and see if we start to get the data back again.

    I had not expected this, not in my wildest dreams...so I have no notes and might just ramble on with nonsense here. Gosh, just let me look around and savor this moment, I mean, I'll probably never be here again and I want to remember this.

    Remember "All glory is fleeting".

    Looks like a fix has been made so that this works ok now.
