Publisher description for WeathAlert
I wrote this to display weather info and to alert me when it rains and such. Let me know what you think of it, and if you have any problems; I've tested it on 2K & XP, but I've no 98 boxes so I've not tested it on that. It works outside the US too (try putting in your city name). Note that you need the .NET Framework 2.0 for it to run. Download .NET Framework Here (x86) I had originally decided to write it when I neglected to realize it was raining and went to class, only to get soaked because I didn't have Time To Go back up and get my jacket. I figured it'd be handy to have balloon tips when it rains and such; ironically it took me forever to get that to work, because of the way that the .net framework handles tray icons; you can't just use the standard Win API stuff and send your window handle, because the tray icons have their own hidden windows. Anyway it was originally written in VB, then I rewrote it in C# for the hell of it, and made the UI much more efficient (it used to be a lot bigger, although the weather.com links sort of negated my improvements in that area); then I figured, since most of my college goes home for the weekend, it'd be pretty handy to have the weather information for both Locations (home & school).
