    Seattle people using BMV2 skin (you're gonna like this)

    http://www.seattle5s.com/Carputer.rar

    So it's not by best "artistic" work.. but hey... I just want the functionality.

    For those of us in Seattle, I've written some HTML files that display:
    - Live traffic feed from WSDOT (Washtington State Department Of Transportation)
    - Live traffic cameras for
    - I5
    - I405
    - I90
    - SR 520
    - Live satellite Weather image for WA
    - Live Pass cameras for
    - Stevens
    - Blewett
    - Snoqualmie
    - Manastash Ridge
    - White Pass

    To get it to look its best, you'll need to remove the Standard Buttons, Status, Links, and any other toolbar you have turned on in IE. You'll also need to move the address bar to the same line as the Standard bar (File, Edit...)

    I've also set this as my home page, so as soon as a launch "Web" in RR, The car.htm page comes up.

    It's almost 3:00am here and I'm to tired to clean it up tonight to make it look it's best. I'll leave that to someone else who likes it.

    If you have a department of transportation website that hosts images and what not like this, it wouldn't be hard to adapt it.

    Hmm... put this in my car this morning, and buttons are being stretched and it looks kind of strange. I have a widescreen monitor at home, so I thought it would be the same, but I guess not. I'll just have to play with the table widths and what not to get it right.

    Another bug I just noticed is on the Camera pages. When the page auto-refreshes (60 seconds) it loads the default image. I didn't do this on my home computer. I can fix this by targeting a page for each camera... but that's a LOT of new pages to create and manage.

    Anyone know if you can auto refresh the contents of an iframe?
