    When does weather data reload? And a suggestion!

    David,

    When exactly does CF reload weather data? Is it every 15 mins when a connection is active? Does it reload it as soon as it re-establishes a connection?

    Also, I think it would be a great idea if the 'Web Links' that can now be set up, would also automatically load in the background when a connection is detected (assuming that is how it works for weather plugin). Would it save those Web Links in cache?

    My idea is that it would load them automatically every time a conection is detected so that it haves a more recent version always 'handy'. But not sure if that would work with cache files in the browser etc when no connection is available...

    It does update when an internet connection is detected... I do have to follow the weather.com rules for updates though, which it does... The only you to post for updates for certain pieces of information so often, so I followed their rules exactly...

    What i am doing is using a web proxy cache and net detect. When net detect does its thing it runs a batch file that WGETs all the urls in my CF. Now when I click the links they are always there and mostly updated.
