Dear weathermap users, as you already saw, I didn't get lots of time to work on Weathermap4rrd these last months. Indeed, I was working on a new project called WoozTalk. This is a new Internet service that will let you chat with people connected on any website you are visiting ! So come on and meet your World Wide Web neighbors ! I really think that WoozTalk may complete the way we are using Internet.

Hi, this last few weeks and months, there were issues with forums. I was unable to get it completely repaired. That's why, I decided to freeze post of old forum (but it is still available to read previous posts). I created a new forum to post new questions.
