Windows: Weather for Me 1.7 released

Weather for Me is a program created by Staylazy.net Software to grab a detailed ten day forecast from weather.com and place it on your iPod. All iPod versions are compatible.

What’s new in this version:

“I went through a long beta testing period with a few users who were receiving the ‘RunTimeError5’ message. We ran some extensive tests on there machines, and the machines that werent receiving the error, and then found the core of the problem. It involved the Weather.com website. But hopefully now its all been resolved.”

License: Freeware
System Requirements:
With Weather for Me 1.3 you can use any iPod version of your choice (generation wise).
Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, or XP
2mb of Disk Space
5mb of RAM

The site feature lists: “C to F Converter”

Shouldn’t this read: F to C Converter?

Thanks for the response zeve.  What you are saying would make sense to me but for the fact that it is reporting, for example, highs in the upper 16s and lows in low 17s for one day.  If we are talking celsius here, I would think it should logically read lows in the low 16s and highs in the upper 17s (although neither corresponds to the local forecast which is reporting a high of 10C and low of 1C for that day).  And I have no idea what “Highs in the upper -1-17s and lows in the upper—17s” means.  All this aside, I have to reiterate that this is a cool little utility and even if the 10-day forecast doesn’t quite work, I do appreciate having a fairly comprehensive day and a half forecast.  Thanks.

I still don’t get any weather information, just “Weather for Me - Synched” and that’s all.

Scott make sure that your firewall is enabled to allow the software to run and that your actually using version 1.3.

Davron and others,

Hi Zeve—Thanks for the quick response.  Where is the fix posted?  Is there some patch or new version to download or do I simply download ver. 1.3 again?

Great! It works for me now. I’m a 2nd genner also.

How about a option to download without having your Ipod connected and automatically veiw .txt file in notepad, then sync or refresh and sync later if wanted.

Posted by Scott on October 20, 2003 at 7:03 AM (CDT)

Hey this is a great little utility. Up there with Ephpod and GoogleGet. Just a special request. Any chance of having to option of changing the wind speeds to Kilometres per hour instead of just miles per hour?

Otherwise, it works fine!
