Weather in Speed dial

The post below is related to old version of my speed dial weather and still might be useful to someone who uses old versions of Opera. For Opera 11.50+ there is a new Opera extension:
Were you thinking about some alternative way how to use speed dial? Here is one way how you can do that. I've created site with big weather images and description.
So how it works? Very simple.
First part is the URL of the site:
Put this URL into some speed dial window
Second part is query string. There are five (all optional) parameters that you can use.
1 - Language: lang=en or cs/fr - default is "cs" (Czech language)
2 - Area: area=London - default is Prague (Capital of Czech Republic)
3 - Top: top=100 - this parameter sets margin-top css property of images and description, thank to this parameter you can align the main parts to center of your speeddial window.
4 - Redirect: redirect=http://www.wunderground.com/ - Site to which you get redirected when you click on speed dial window. Default is http://www.wunderground.com/. You can also type: no - this means that you won't be redirected anywhere. If you want to use site with query string you will have to encode this URL, or use some site like http://bit.ly/ (that's what I do).
[NEW] 5 - Degrees: deg=F - Use Fahrenheit instead of Celsius
Thanks for Frenzie who gave me the idea of speed dial vs. real window detection.
So here is one completed example:
And here is screen of the result:
I hope you like it =)
BTW you should set time interval to reload this speed dial window (I use 30 minutes)
