it copies a couple of times for each icon, I cant figure out when it happens

Very very strange.  I just vetted the code for any extraneous clipboard calls and there are none except for the right-click context menu on the main interface.

    + Added status bar mouseover conversions for all values that can be converted.
      Hover your mouse above a reading, e.g., the current temperature, and the
      converted value should appear in the status bar.  (Thanks, Ath)
Great feature, thanks!

Haven't checked for any updates for a long time, and now I come and see all those new wonderful features!

Addition of five day forecast is great, now it is a truly irreplaceable tool with its sheer minimalism and simplicity.

v1.3.4 - 2012-09-03
    + Added an option to display a location's local time in the titlebar.  You
      can also customise the date/time format string using the standard AutoHotkey
      tokens found here: http://www.autohotkey.com...s/commands/FormatTime.htm
      (Thanks, Alex)

v1.3.3 - 2012-08-31
    + Added "Close to tray" option.  This was the default behaviour previously
      but now you can change it, if desired.  (Thanks, Alex)
    * Reduced the height of the Options dialog to better fit smaller resolutions.
      (Thanks, Alex)

Euhm, what local time is it supposed to display? My local time or the selected location's local time? It seems to display my current local time, independent of the location selected for display on the main screen (I switched locations using the scroll-wheel and from the Locations menu).

It's supposed to display the selected location's local time (at least it does for me).  Dealing with time zones is such a pain in the ass that I am using a website API for this so that might be causing the issue for you.  The API I'm using is found here:

http://www.worldweatheron...ne.com/time-zone-api.aspx

I'll contact you in IRC to try and solve this issue.  If anybody knows of a nice, easy way to deal with timezones, I'm all ears.

Hm, this might be proxy-related (simple no-password http proxy) but that has worked before, I also couldn't get the automatic updates where I am now Sad might be some silly network configuration issue.

I would prefer relative age of data instead of absolute, something like:

30°C Prague
(as of 39 minutes ago)

... since you are dealing with timezones now. smiley

When I run sWeather, it doesn't show any weather. When I open the Options dialog, it shows Codyville, ME WOEID 238514. When I try WOEID Lookup for 72744, nothing happens. I have sWeather.exe  v1.3.8.1, help.html, changelog.txt and images in my Vista C:/Program Files/sWeather diectory. What am I missing?

Thanks for your help, John, Wizened Web Wizard Wannabe

Before skwire or someone else chimes in with a better (and correct!) answer try another directory. Not Program Files, instead on the desktop for example.

Hi, jm34harvey, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  Can you please do what rgdot suggests, and try running sWeather in a folder that is not UAC protected?  Thank you.

rgdot, skwire,

Thanks, it worked. It was my old friend UAC lurking in the wings. Actually, I checked "run as administrator" in my shortcut and it worked.

I used NirSoft's ZipInstaller and by default, it offers to create a Program Files folder. Since, it'll help me remember this lesson (and forget others), I suspect that I will create a "UAC Intimidated Programs" folder. When they are huddled together, they'll feel less intimidated. Also, it'll make it easier to select options like "Run when Windows starts."

Thanks again for the rapid response, John, Wizened Web Wizard Wannabe

This program is nothing but fun and informative, very ingenious.  Thmbsup

I am curious about whether different weather sources are available other than Yahoo Weather? For instance, until I downloaded sWeather I kept wunderground running in the background on my desktop because it offers choices of specific weather stations - there are a dozen or so here in Phoenix, and one is within 100 yards of my house, kind of like having my own private weather station. I also have family in rural Virginia, and there are 3 weather stations within 10 miles of their home accessible at wunderground, but Yahoo Weather only offers a single weather source at both locations. It is amazing how much variance there is between the different weather station options, some just miles apart. But don't get me wrong, I'm delighted sWeather and I'm tracking 5 locations daily - nice to follow the weather where my kids live.  cheesy

*shrug* It's one of those times where you have to pick something, right?  At the time I developed sWeather, the Yahoo! API was one of the easiest to deal with.  No API key signup, no real ToS to adhere to other than "don't be a d...", no authentication, easy RSS/XML output, etc.  I mean, I've read some API ToS that made me wonder, "Good grief, am I even allowed to develop a piece of freeware using this API?" I didn't get that feeling with the Yahoo! Weather API.  Sure, it's not perfect, but what is, right?

At any rate, thank you for the feedback and I'm glad you're enjoying sWeather.   Thmbsup
