@Tom - well its FREEEEEEEE so you got more than you paid the evil author of the program. also will be nice if you spend thousands of hours developing a free program and then let others criticize you with BIG BOLD ANGRY CAPITALS!!!!

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)

For a different perspective about weather-related applications,
take a peek at the Norwegian Met office free-access portal: http://yowindow.com

I have no idea why the "GUI version without installer" has the .man extension, but it's only a simple archive and can be extracted with 7zip or UniversalExtractor. So "How to extract" field is still displaying correct information.

You are right! My Opera is at fault here. My beloved Opera failed my once more...again... Maybe it's finally time to put it to rest...
