I just received an email from Fabrice Marguerie, the creator of PageMethods (that useful tool that helps make your links between pages in ASP.NET applications “type-safe”) He’s decided to make the project Open Source on CodePlex. This is great, as hopefully it will allow a few people to contribute and help the tool to develop and improve.
It allows you to select one of the weather radar locations provided by the Bureau of Meteorology, and then updates the image at regular intervals (10 minutes by default).
Because the sidebar is quite narrow, it also allows you re-centre the radar image so you can focus on your area of interest.
If you hover the mouse over the image, then it will cycle through the last few images (up to 10).
As outlined in the Copyright Notice on the Bureau’s website, the images are copyrighted by the Commonwealth of Australia, but may be linked to without requiring permissions as long as acknowledgement is given and no advertising is nearby.
Something to file away for future reference - a list of all the CSS classes and IDs used by SharePoint 2007.
