Which weather station, Pocket PC, and Balistic Program?

OK, I'm hooked on this long range stuff. I realize I need a weather station, Pocket PC, and a ballistic program, but which ones? I would just as soon buy the good stuff first and be done with it. What to you guys (or gals) recommend?
Is this the right forum for this question?

    I also use the 4000, and I use Exbal loaded on a Dell Axim.

    I have the Krestel 4000 also and I have the Exbal as well. I also have the Nightforce PC version on my Laptop. One question, how do you get update as new ammunition comes out. It could be a problem.

    With the Exbal program can you set it up to give you clicks up (say for a 1/4 in. click scope ) or does it just give you minute of angle and you have to calculate the clicks yourself? Also does this program account for gryrscopic lateral and vertical movements associated with a right or left twist barrel (Precession, Magnus, Bernoulli's, Coning, Yaw of Repose) or do you have to figure that out on your own?

    My pocket PC will allow me to to use MOA, IPHY (inches per hundred yards), MIL , or CPHM (cm/100m) and click increments can be in 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, 1/3, and 1/6.

    Exactly what Ernie said.

    You can use just clicks or you can have your MOA, IPHY, CPHY and MIL's in 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/10 increments.
