    Thumbs Down to rssweather. they have a huge list of canadian locations and most of them just say “Location not found”. terribly lame. there is no such thing as a globally available weather feed without some sort of catch. Yahoo requires you to go to their homepage to look up the “location code” for your city, which is lame, someone should offer a complete globally available free weather feed.
