Thank you for LQ


Just a note to say entirely thanks to LQ I got my gkrellm weather plugin working
on reasonably local data.

The default in gkrellweather plugin is YSSY - an airport in Sydney Australia.

Having no previous experience of this plugin I didn't know where that code
came from not how to find out what code it was using. The only reference in
GrabWeather is for METAR and that didn't really help.

So I came in here and searched for gkrellm weather and eventually found a post
that helped me by simply mentioning the code is one of the ICAO codes.

I googled for that and got what I needed.

Without LQ, I suspect I would have been stuck with Australian weather for a
while.

Thank you for being here

yip...that's what i like also....
just browsing this forum brings always some ideas.
so....works here too.

but...can you tell how to paste the info to a file ( or here ) ?

EDIT: don't bother, a file is made in /root/.wmWeatherReports after
running the " GrabWeather " -script.

Slightly OT:

As far as I know GrabWeather writes .DAT and .TXT files to a .wmWeather subdir of the home directory of the user running GrabWeather.
