Re: [gDesklets] Command-line testing of sensors

Ahhh.... right. This is still using a Sensor (unbelievable, isn't it ?).
I guess the test-Script won't work with Sensors.

Very good idea.
But the main problem (IMHO) with a weather desklet (including Control)
seems to be the "Terms of Use" (TOS), basically no matter which service
you are going to use.

AFAIR there is a Yahoo Weather Control... checking...
Yes, you can find it in the SideCandy Weather Desklet (take a look at
the Desklets Archive site).
But I have no idea if it is working (the desklets and/or the control) or
if it does comply to the Yahoo TOS.
