Using Mike's location OPML (see http://mike260.dyndns.org/~mikef/countries.opml) and the BBC weather feeds, the following experimental IM bots should now be running:

MSN: bbcweather@hotmail.co.uk
AIM: bbcweather
Jabber/GTalk: bbcweather@menti.net

They're very simple - add them as a new contact and say hello, and take it from there...

It's done in Perl, using an open-source framework ( http://www.duncanlamb.com/sdba/) and the various CPAN modules that provide connectivity to the individual IM protocols.
