    With the new release of MOSS I got to know that Microsoft was not going to give us the weather Web part anymore, but after some time searching the web I found the bamboo clock and weather web part which immediately lit me up. After a very simple install and placing the web part in a MOSS site I discovered it didn’t worked!, I was very angry when I found out that bamboo knew of this and their resolution is for a future release :-s

    The following is the error I get: WebPart Error :: Method Name – OnPreRender :: [MESSAGE] – No es posible conectar con el servidor remoto

    Another problem is that the clock does not automaticaly update. You need to refresh the screen.

    I think you need to update your Proxy in your Web Config… That fixed that issue for me. I have another issue though where I get the below error… Anyone recognise this?

    WebPart Error :: Method Name – OnInit :: MESSAGE – The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)
