how about a local weather GUI that reports the outdoors highs and lows [temps], and the barometric scale and the forecast?
we've got one in a shaded area on our deck that pings an indoors receiver every 10-15 minutes. I can't get too close to the receiver for fear of ramming into the furniture. also, the backlight only lasts a few seconds ... too fast for me to scan everything. 1. is there any transmitter that will reach, say, 25 meters and whose data could be picked up by a card inside my computer? 2. I live so close to the airport weather station that im sure that would tell me tons more stuff that I could pick up outside the house. Iremember seeing the weather bureau for the entire US. pretty sure there are global sites with similar data. feedback? gary -- Gary Kline kl...@thought.org http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix Twenty-six years of service to the Unix community. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
