MSN Weather add-in for MSN Toolbar and Windows Desktop Search

I like this one very very much. It even knows my city (Zottegem, Belgium) and redirects to the nearest place with known weather data (Munte, Belgium about 10 km from my home). It even tried to specify our local city "communities" and guess what ... the toolbar knows them (it's using the MapPoint web services in the background to find the specified places, see map):

Wat stelt dit voor? Het doet mij denken aan behangpapiermotief van in de 2e wereldoorlog.
Bijna niet leesbaar trouwens. 't Zelfde probleem met de vergroting.

Allee maar ik ben content dat uw gemeente erop staat.

Zoek gewoon Gent op via weather.com, er bestaat zelfs een goeie API voor als je het wil opnemen in je software.

Hmm, I guess you're not viewing the picture full-sized. When you hover over the picture in IE, you'll find a button "Expand to regular size" in the right bottom corner.

And btw, weather.com doesn't know my city, so I like MSN Weather much much more :-).
