    I love this hack, very useful. I'm wondering if there are ways that it could be improved. Firstly, the BOM site allows for the most recent 4 images to be shown in succession as an animation. It would be great if this was possible with the hack. Also, it would be great if the rainfall data only could be displayed, with the background map transparent. As it is, the images obscure the GE satelite data beneath it.

    Perhaps someone with coding skills and lots of bandwidth could rip the BOM data and maybe using imagemagic, create a transparent animated gif with all colours but the rainfall intensity colours set to transpartent. This would be really cool!

    Yeh Weipa was also not available when i made it.

    I have a number of other ones, I'm thinking I'll break the menus up into states (so you can turn most of it off). Also I have all the synoptic and lightning data to add.

    Not sure how you stop it enabling *EVERY* overlay when you load it.

    Found a bug as well, if you add a new overlay to the folder it resets all the transparencys. Haven't spotted the report a bug link yet.
