	how about a local weather GUI that reports the outdoors highs and
	lows [temps], and the barometric scale and the forecast?

	we've got one in a shaded area on our deck that pings an indoors
	receiver every 10-15 minutes.  I can't get too close to the 
	receiver for fear of ramming into the furniture.  also, the
	backlight only lasts a few seconds ... too fast for me to scan
	everything.

	1. is there any transmitter that will reach, say, 25 meters and 
	whose data could be picked up by a card inside my computer?

	2. I live so close to the airport weather station that im sure
	that would tell me tons more stuff that I could pick up outside the
	house.  Iremember seeing the weather bureau for the entire US.
	pretty sure there are global sites with similar data.

	feedback?

	gary
