I haven't tried it in any VM, this is bare metal on an old 686 PC. I used 9front rather than Plan9 proper, the most recent image from 5/15/15.

Care to share the script that does that? Does one need "rainmaker" for it to work?

I use this:
Code:
$ type weather
weather is aliased to `wget -O - ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/observations/metar/decoded/EPWA.TXT 2>/dev/null'
where EPWA is ICAO name for Warsaw.

Thank you!

nws does international ... AWESOME ... TeoBigusGeekus will be happy. Scroll down to: 3)NWS XML - USA users - 3_15-6-15

I have a bash script that will get a very simple "now temp and conditions" based on your ISP - not mine I found it on the net:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# weatherbang.sh version 1.0, 2013 by Ryan Fantus
# Conky weather script, automagically geolocates your IP to find city/state/
# country info, and then fetches your weather info from openweathermap.
# A TON of this was stolen directly from Frederic Cambus, thanks!
# jq required for use:  http://stedolan.github.io/jq/

# User configurables below:
# Uncomment this line for fahrenheit:
#metric='imperial' && unit='F'
# Otherwise comment above line, uncomment here for celcius:
metric='metric' && unit='C'

# First, geolocate our IP:
ipinfo=$(curl -s ipinfo.io)
latlong=$(echo $ipinfo | jq -r '.loc')
# Parse the latitude and longitude into their own values
lat=${latlong,*}
long=${latlong#*,}

weather=$(curl -s http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather\?lat\=${lat}\&lon\=${long}\&units\=${metric})
city=$(echo $weather | jq -r '.name')
temperature=$(printf '%.0f' $(echo $weather | jq '.main.temp'))
condition=$(echo $weather | jq -r '.weather[0].main')

#echo -n "$city - $condition: "
#echo $temperature $unit

echo -n " $temperature $unit - $condition"
Top line of my test.conky ... didn't bother with city, I know where I am

This one is good within the USA

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# forecast
#desc Find current weather stats and forecast for your zip code
#desc Ex: forecast 03301
# weather 1.1 -Crouse
# With Updates by Jeo
# Modified to run stand alone by Brian Masinick,
# and also added the forecast logic contributed by Daenyth.
# NOTE: This tool uses the elinks and links text web browsers (if you don't have both,
# adjust accordingly)
# Example:  forecast 03301
# Usage: forecast zipcode

  zipcode=$1
  if [ -z "$zipcode" ]; then
    echo "Please provide a zip code (Ex: weather 03301)"
  else
  unset response
#  Should be one distinct line (using repeated slashes to help):
###################################################################################################################################################
  WEATHER="$(elinks -dump -dump-width 300 "http://mobile.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=${zipcode}" | grep -A16 Updated)"

  if [ -z "$WEATHER" ]; then
    response="No Results for $zipcode"
    echo "${response}"
  else
    response[1]="$(echo "$WEATHER" | grep -Eo 'Observed.*' | sed s/\ *\|\ */\|/g | awk -F\| '{print "Weather: " $1}')"

@ John VV - "make" backgrounds - that one is awesome, I like it - excellent work.

@ JWJones - Thank you will look at that too. Maybe - if it will reside on a partition with Linux - I'll give it a run - looks interesting. I {cough cough} like the plane OOPS!, it rotates - plane here

As seen on other forums it's my avatar!

Fluxbox + Compton + xfce4-panel

I've recently changed the window decorations to be a little less plain.

Thank you kindly for the link but I was commenting on the wallpaper not asking. Also I don't have a Gopgle Account for anything.
