Thanks Ed_P, I just got watching it. I like to know how they did it.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

I suspect a C program Jack but that is just a guess.

Try this on your command line: curl wttr.in

I presume, there is no way to pause this fun, is there?

Not that I'm aware of. I just close the terminal window.
