More on flash charts to see temperatures
You never know from where the inspiration will arrive. Doing some banking managements I took a look at one interesting Euribor Web Page and I came across a nice charts with lots of options to be able to explore values along a wide time range. Doing some research I found that the flash chart used belongs to amCharts. This web offers the use of a wide range of flash charts for free, including the stocks chart, the one that I was interested in.
The stocks chart is a wonderful flash component. You don't need to worry about almost nothing, just create a csv file with the date and the value you want to see per line. The stocks chart will do the hard job for you. Of course you can spend a lot of time exploring all settings but for the simple ones it won't take too much. It gives you more or less the same behaviours of simple RRDTools graphs but being able to do some zooming interactively.
