UPDATE >> Clock is working now..
discovered that it does not update from a cold start ( basic time not set ) but once time is set, it syncs the min. and seconds.
the RSS feed is not working yet. that is still a issue. but it is connected and there is a UP ARROW ^ after the date, indicating that the clock is connected and getting info.
i hope maybe someone here had some interest.

the up arrow at the end of the date shows that it is connected to the net.

good to hear. congrats!

That "useless" weather info, does it sound like pilots or boaters would be interested?

cheers,

i'd be happy with current conditions
( ex. sunny 85F, light winds )
but it is hard to find a weather XML feed with basic weather info..
and one know of other weather XML feeds ?
