    Weather problems

    I believe I'm using weather.com as my source to grab weather conditions in my software. My problem is I have to keep rewriting the damn thing because they keep changing up their website. I've rewritten my software 5 times now. Can someone point me in the direction of a weather site that isn't constantly changing up?

    http://www.worldweatheronline.com/

    It's what we use for Centrafuse and it works great. Free API. 'nuff said.

    Thank you, worlds faster and worlds easier.

    Onto another subject out of curiosity. The site that I'm using for my gas prices is a little slow, any site providing an api for gas prices?

    Haven't seen one with an API. Enforceer is probably the guy to talk to, as he's done a lot more work in this area.

    Damn you're quick lol, I was just coming back to eit this, much appreciated. But it is not actually retrieving the gas info that is slowing my function own, it is converting the addresses to coordinates that is doing it. So to instead of info on gas price retrieval, is anyone using anything/site specific to convert addresses to coordinates quickly?

    I've been scrutinizing the temps this site is giving me for nyc area and it seems to be giving me temps on average 5 to 8 degrees higher than every other weather source. Today I got two days within a 5 day cast 10 degrees higher than four other sources. Has anyone else noticed this? Where do they get their data from?
