    Exclamation "How's the Weather?" Contest is Open!

    The weather is an endless topic for conversation, and the 'Net is chock full of great weather sites as well as weather gadgets, widgets and so on.
    So, we here at The Windows Club (and in association with WindowsTalk) are asking you to 'show us your weather'!

    Before we go any further, this contest is open to TWC members who have registered on or BEFORE APRIL 30th, 2009. Any entries by members registered on or after May 1st will be deleted.




    OK, that being said, here's what you need to do to enter:
    • simply post a screen shot of a weather gadget running on your Windows PC desktop or notification area (a partial screen shot is OK)
    • post a 'live' weather feed here (the code is supplied by the weather site).
    Here's what we have to offer you:

    There will be five (5) winners chosen at random. Each winner will receive a registration code to a full copy of TuneUp: "your music collection's new best friend". A neat application that will fix your extensive digital music collection by grabbing cover art, ID tags and much more. You can download a trial version here.

    Contest will end Monday May 11th at approx 8:00pm Atlantic Standard Time.

    That's it! So show us your weather and win!

    James, nice contest. No insult meant but we retired educators can't help ourselves - no April 31st.

    Weather here in Paradise is 80 and partly sunny.
