Another fairly useless single-serving site 23.03.2009

Yesterday, while the other people in my household were cooking dinner, I made a weather single-serving site for Dublin. Is it raining in Dublin? will answer that question, and that question only. There's no user-generated content, there are no dot-oooh effects either, but it has a favicon!

There might sometimes be a slight delay (~15-20 minutes) in the weather data, and if it's very local showers, heck, then I won't know about them. Apart from that, it should be pretty sturdy.

A couple of useless features comes to mind, and they are already on my extensive roadmap of this top notch, bleeding edge web application. The possibilities are endless.

Thanks to domai.nr for making it so easy to get my mittens on the domain I wanted.

Brilliant ! :)
Nice domain too.

Oh also, indubl.in is showing a index page. maybe you wanna just put in a link to the weather page...

Thanks Sasidhar, I put a link there now, good suggestion. I'm getting data from wunderground at the moment, they seem to be the most up to date source I could find.

And you are right, many possibilities with the domain, let's hope I can rise to the occasion for some of my ideas (:
