Weather Info on PocketPCTools.com

Wednesday, August 11, 2004 10:04 AM

Weather Info was just selected as the "Freeware of the Day" at PocketPCTools.com.  Here's what they had to say:

If you're looking for a simple, but effective, weather program and don't require it to be on your Today screen, take a look at Weather Info.  This application was just updated yesterday to v.2.4 and was developed by Shane Church. 

Weather Info is designed for PPC2002 and WM2003, but based on a quick review it should work fine on WM2003SE as well.  There are some nice features including the ability to skin your weather icons.  The weather data is saved in an XML fomat and is provided via web connection to weather.com.

Some folks like their weather on the Today screen, but for those that don't want another "plug-in", this might be worth a look.  As a sidenote, some of Shane's other application development projects are also available on his site and through Handango.

Enjoy (and don't forget your umbrella!).

On a side note, I found a fix for the "Could not find resource assembly" error that was plaguing some iPAQ owners.  The fix is to download and install System_SR_enu.cab for English Pocket PC owners.  For Pocket PCs, in other languages, contact me at support@s-church.net and I will get you the appropriate CAB file.

DCI 2004

DCI World Championships 2004 - Denver, Colorado

Saturday night I went to the Drum Corps International World Championships at Invesco Field in Denver.  It was the first time the Championships had been held in Denver since 1972. During the course of the night, I ran into a number of people that I had marched with at various times in high school, college, and the 1996 Blue Knights. 

The Cavaliers from Rosemont, IL won with a score of 98.7.  The Blue Knights finished 10th with a score of 87.6.  It was an incredible night as more than 30,000 people packed the concert side of Invesco Field watch the best Corps in the world.

Journal Redesign

Monday, August 2, 2004 2:11 PM

I've redesigned the Journal section of the site.  The main journal page now shows the five most recent entries.  Older entries are accessible through the Journal Archive links on the left side.  Let me know what you think of the new design.
