Hi Listers,
I don't know how many of you are interested in the weather.  However, if you 
are, here's a sweet little program I bought online.  The price is only 12 
dollars.  The program is called Weather Socket, or wetsock for short.
The link to the site is:
You can download a free trial version if you'd like to try it out before you 
buy it.  The registration can't be done without sighted help.  However, if you 
let them know that you are blind, they will send you your registration as an 
attachment as a .reg file.  Just save, then open the .reg file and the program 
registration is done automatically.  Here's some info on this program.   Jack

WetSock will keep you updated about the weather over Internet without even 
needing to dial into your Internet Service Provider. If you periodically dial
in for surfing, checking your mail etc., WetSock will connect to the weather 
server and get the weather information in the background, but can also dial
in and hang-up by itself.

information once you are connected for any other purpose.
· Integrated with built-in Dial-up Networking. Will use your existing Dial-up 
Networking and TCP/IP settings. Requires no further settings.
