Weather of area in view + bug fixes

On Monday morning I quickly fixed Konqueror/KHTML support. This might help with some older versions of the Safari browser, too (in case they had any problems - I don't know if they did).

Last night I added a small local weather info line on the right side of the map. It shows an average current weather report from the weather stations within (and near) the current map view. Before calculating the averages, some of the most extreme samples are removed - if there are 6 weather stations reporting the temperature as 0, 5, 6, 7, 7, and 15 degrees, the average will be avg(5,6,7,7) = 6.3 degrees. There are some stations sending rubbish out there.

Weather history graphs can now show temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit. Some other small weather related bugs were also fixed.

The best new program I have seen for Ham Radio! Thank you so much for your work. I us it all the time.

Is there a way to input a personal location as with Findu.

Example: I am a pilot and travel the world. With Findu I can input a reference (lat and Long) string into the address bar of my browser and it will update my possiton on findu's map.

http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/inputpos.cgi?call=n2kto-9&passwd=giantmt&lat=41.0382&lon=-74.57765

This would greatly enhance my family's ability to follow me around the world.

Thanks again for a great program. I will be using it to monitor a charity race with many trackers.

Thanks for the feedback! Sorry, it's currently not possible to input data from the web.

There is still an error reporting degrees Fahrenheit on the graphs. shows degrees celcius.

Oops. I fixed the weather graphs unit conversions now (again). I hope I got it right this time!
