    How does this compare to g-funkster's weather app, HourlyXCast?

    I sent them an email last night. . . .they responded this morning . . . with the registration code. . . saying I showed as registered. I checked my email provider's portal -- and their original email was in the spam filtering hold tank. . . . .

    It gives data in graphic rather than tabular form. It is easier to change locations. It does not require Java.

    Well, not having to use Java would be nice...

    Interesting. When I switched from daily to hourly forecast data, the data transfer jumped from 7K to 15K -- consistent.

    Not being a weather geek, and being very directionally-challenged, can someone more attuned to this sort of stuff confirm how one is meant to read the windsock icons in this program?

    In the diagram shown on ths page:

    http://www.kigosha.com/treociel/treociel.php

    it indicates that the thin end of the sock points to the direction of the wind (in this case, NNE),

    but when I cross-check the windsock orientations shown in the program against actual described wind directions given on weather.com, it would seem just the opposite.

    Cheers

    Just to be sure --- a real windsock would have the wind coming in the larger end and going out the small end . . . .

    So if the sock is "pointing" to the NE, the wind should be "out of" the SW at the speed indicated. . . .

    Does this line up with your testing?

    Yes, exactly.

    Looks like the Kigosha guys just got it round the wrong way on their web page then.

    thanks.

    So the windsock on TreoCiel is "pointing" to the direction the wind is "coming" from . . . .opposite from what a real windsock would do?

    My downloads are 23k for daily and hourly being requested. . . . .23k when I request Comstock Park, MI . . . . . . and 23k when I request Orlando, Fl.

    I just checked Comstock Park at www.weather.com and they are saying that the wind is FROM the NNE and the windsock on TreoCiel is pointing SSW -- so it appears that they have the wind sock going the direction a true windsock would "point". (Fat end at the FROM direction and pointy end pointing to the direction the wind is headed. . . .)

    no: in the application the virtual windsock is working as you described it should in real life.

    but, in their online "manual", they have a diagram showing a windsock with the narrow end pointing N-NE, and underneath it they have written "N-NE", whereas I imagine it should be "S-SW".

    see: http://www.kigosha.com/treociel/treociel.php

    I recently purchased license for TreoCiel, but have been unable to obtain registration credentials from Kigosha. Emails do not "bounce back", but are not responded to. The Web site has indicated that it's undergoing "Maintenance" for at least 2 weeks , with no content accessible. The last evidence of a posted update to TreoCiel I've found is 12/08.

    Anybody aware of a way to obtain reg credentials from the developer? I will plan to post if I find one.
