Hi All,

I'm stuck. I'll admit it. I can't figure it out and I don't have the time to keep digging till I get it.

Yahoo recently made a change to the Weather API that requires OAuth1 validation, but their documentation is weak at best. From what I've read on their dev forums, I'm not alone in this opinion.

What I need is for this Yahoo API function to work, or more likely, to be replaced with something more reliable.

The only thing I need to call for is the current temperature and the current condition text (Rain, Partly Cloudy, Hail, Tornadoes, Armageddon, etc..). That's it. I have a testing environment set up that's close enough to the actual website it'll be going on. Ideally, this would include a cache file function to keep things speedy.

If you're interested, let me know your price and turn around time.

Thanks,
