+ - Linux at the truckstop for realtime weather maps

toodle-lou writes "There's an interesting article on Linuxdevices.com about a Slackware powered digital sign that is used to provide real-time weather forecasts, satellite maps, and doppler radar to places like truckstops, marinas, golf courses, rest stops, airline terminals and other public places where weather is of concern and people need to make go/no-go decisions based on weather ahead. Called ViziFrame, its a small Linux based appliance that can hook up to any TV or LCD/plasma video display and run a localized weather channel along with advertising. The appliance automatically updates from any Ethernet or WiFi connection available."

All the evidence concerning the universe has not yet been collected, so there's still hope.
