It would work, I guess...

Would there be any issue with an application writing data to a file (in Easyweather format) and Cumulus reading it at almost the same time? I'm thinking about sharing violations.
Running a program that gathers data, then stopping it, then running Cumulus to display and post, then stopping it to gather new data doesn't seem very practical...

Cumulus opens the file in read-only mode. It works with Easyweather writing to the file; it would have been a useless facility otherwise.
