Process Tamer Has Fans, Part Three
Ever have a program try to take over? Well i finally found the answer it's called Process Tamer it's a small program that sit's in the system tray when it sees a process that is overloading your cpu, it reduces the priority of that process temporarily, until its cpu usage returns to a reasonable level. After 3 week's of testing it has allmost completly put a stop to what i call system hanger's, the program's that will suddenly hog 100% resource's and hang the system. Best of all this is FREE the one word you will find here alot. I give it a 5 out of 5.

Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) - v1.81

Recently Yahoo changed their weather API, which ended up breaking a weather application written by DonationCoder member Skwire (Jody Holmes), called sWeather.

It was interesting because it immediately became clear that there were a lot of sWeather users who had been silently enjoying the program, and they all came out of the woodwork when the program stopped working..

Skwire dived into the new Yahoo API and has just released a new version (v1.81) that works with it.  So all of you new and old sWeather fans can go back to enjoying this lovely app.  :Thmbsup:

And a small reminder: If you enjoy Skwire's apps and his commitment to his users, why not send him a little donation and a message of encouragement!  You can do so: here.

Name sWeather
Short Description Tray-based weather app featuring multiple location support.  Tray icons for conditions and temperature (optional).  Tray icons and images are customizable.  Weather data is provided by Yahoo! Weather.
