Z Weather
I've just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out the "latitude and longitude" of meteorological stations to use with this
module. It turns out the only site I could find gives them out in "dms" format (whatever that is), while Z Weather expects them in some other format. To top it off, it only accepts negative latitudes because apparently it's supposed to be used in the US only - or at least in the north hemisphere. So, unless you're a reasonable programmer (like myself) and know your way around ther guts of Joomla components (unfortunately not my case), if you live in the south hemisphere don't waste your time trying to make any use of this one.

Hi Deny,

Z Weather only works for USA cities because the weather data from the National Weather Service only supports USA locations.

AJAX Shoutbox
Had some trouble with accentuation (for brazilian portuguese), I suggest modifying the parts of the code where text is retrieved from the database and using the utf8_decode function (worked for me). The only reason I don't send the already modified files is I screwed it up somewhat (removed the url display code before realizing there's an option for that)...

I've also noticed that it's easy to mess with the page layout by entering very long words, a fix would be nice.

Other than that, thanks for this excellent extension!
