I can hover the mouse over the local airports temp and humidity line in 
the gkrellm panel and get a popup that in that shows me what I want to 
know, profiled to the existing weather, and which tells me all that as 
its seen 18 miles  north of me. FWIW, I have never set kontact up to do 
anything for me, so if its interlocked with that, that could be one 
explanation.  OTOH, none of those names show up in the trinity control 
center either.

So where is it? Before I run completely out of hair. :)
