A RSS Weather Service

August 10th, 2003

Landed in Seattle today. It was raining. The city wooed, and won me, and now it can rain. In other news I made a push on the flight out today to try to bash my Weather RSS project into workable order before I starting hacking on other projects full time tomorrow. I got it there, but just barely.

Some caveats

  • Doesn’t work for US cities. Its coming, but I didn’t get to it today.
  • Be gentle, running as a CGI so its slow, and resource intensive.
  • Weather info updates every 3 hours, don’t hit a feed more often then that.
  • Absolutely everything is subject to change, and probably will.
  • Very little in the way of error handling, and robustness checking.

Feedback desired

And the project has its own rss feed.
