Weather Wallpaper using Imperial Units

Via: Weather Wallpaper using Imperial Units : Journal Of An Open Sourcee

So I saw Og’s post on Weather Wallpaper and I asked him to forward me on his code/hack to use imperial units. He sent it on to me and I further “hacked” it to include wind speed in mph. I sent it on back to Og who may or may not send it back on to the original author.

The basis of this project is a python script that auto-generates wallpaper with the current weather conditions. It’s very cool and now that I’ve fully hacked it to display all of my weather in imperial units I like it even more. If you’d like a copy of my version of the updated code leave a comment and I’ll forward it on.

Thanks to Og as well as the original author of the code. BTW – if you wish to use my (Og’s) code you still need to install the package from the author then you can replace the script with the new one.
