    Wondering if some people can test their locations on it, to ensure its integrity.

    It's a Weather MOD
    SEMrush
    Yes, another original concept. ;)


    So anywho, if some of you guys test it out, I would appreciate it if you can confirm it's ability to locate area codes and/or cities and their respective weather forecasts.

    I remember testing it long time back when you were actually designing it!
    Works out accurately for my city i.e. Chandigarh, India!
    However we prefer using a different metric system. That being the Celsius instead of Fahrenheit!:)

    Thanks for testing it out. Whether it be 1,2,3 5, 10 or a million, every test counts, so I appreciate it.

    Sharat, thanks for giving the actual city location as well as the metric unit suggestion.

    Ahh, I have that running on my desktop. Matter o'fact, it runs daily.
    It's not aesthetically fit to distribute and still needs some polishing, as I had changed it's overall appearance to a tabular look shortly after I initially mentioned it.

    I have coupled it along with my AJAX thumbnail MOD that runs on DirectoryMIX.
    You can goto any detail page and update the thumbnail to see how the caching works. :evil grin:

    Looks ok for Sydney Australia but as mentioned by other posters, it reads in Farenheit and we talk in Celcius.

    Cheers ;)

    The mod is reporting snow in the forecast for my zip. Considering my user name is snowbird, I'd say it is 100% accurate. :D Plus the snowflakes outside also back up my accuracy claim.

    Nice work and a cool mod.
