 >>>  Quick note
Weather.rev is a stack written by Scott Rossi, that he offers freely  
for demonstration.
This is Scott's original post to the use-rev list
almost exactly 5 years ago on Mon, 27 Feb 2006

Some time back there was a brief discussion about building widget-y  
in Rev.  Here's an example of a weather widget, not because it's never  
done, but because it can be done. :-)

Execute the following your message box:

   go url "";

Using Yahoo Weather RSS, the stack features a translucent window with
Web-supplied image whose display updates every 30 seconds to show  
temperature (F or C), weather conditions, and wind data for the  
location.  Accepts US Zip codes or location IDs (see to find non-US location IDs).

Just something I've been meaning to try for a while.  New users may find
this useful.
