I was messing around with Lcdsmartie

It has this line in it..

$weather.com (CAXX0504)

When I add that on the Lcd it says Connection Timed out

Is it because it's on their end or mines?

The argument in that command is your weather.com Location code.

Easiest way to find this code out is to go to weather.com type in your City name, and when you get to the page that displays weather for your city, look in the address bar. Mine is USVA0294.

BTW, I believe CrystalControl2 will have support for plugins, and when that comes, Im sure there will be a weather pluggin following shortly from the community.

Third-party weather program

If people are interested, I could write an app that would retrieve weather information into a file which can then be read into most LCD software that can read in text files, etc (LCD Smartie can).

It's basically a separate app that runs in the tray and constantly updates a text file with current weather data, etc.

If anyone is interested, let me know.

I get the same message in English:

Component 'LONGTIMER.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid

I'm using the 634 USB

I don't think I am violating my beta test agreement, but there is a CC2 weather plug in coming in CC2. You can get US weather by zip code, or global weather by using the nearest airport code that reports weather. Should do everything everyone has for asked here. I know cause I wrote the plug-in ;)

Forgot to include some OCXs and DLLs with the install. I'll have another install available tomorrow.
