I'm still on XP, but I can do that too with a help of a program Taskbar Shuffle. But, I was thinking not to have to do that every day.  :)
Anyway, never mind, it's not such a big deal.

Hi skwire,

It's been a while since I visited this forum. I see that sWeather is still going strong.  :)

Haven't updated sWeather in a while, so I only now noticed relatively recent options change that made temperature icon going before conditions icon in system tray.
And now my tray doesn't look as it used to be. :( Since sWeather is the last thing I load in tray, temperature icon is last icon in it, so it's easily noticeable. Obviously, I have conditions icon here to, but now it is the last, because it's after temperature icon.

Is there an easy way, to implement some kind of icon order change through an option or hidden ini file setting, for the sake of variety?

Thanks,
lotra

@ Brothbeard
In a 16 years of computing I have never seen piece of software (except for the malware, of course) that caused more problems than various Norton programs. That's just a side note, :) author will surely have better answer for your problem.

Anyway, new sWeather is working fine on my 2 machines with XP and Win7. Thanks for such a quick update, skwire!  8)

I only got notification of an update (version 3) today per email - is that the new version you're talking about?

Not me, I think it's safer to wait for a while, cause people are reporting many problems with this major version change.

I've noticed LP acting slower lately also but wasn’t certain if it was the new version or the change to the iterations setting.

Well, I guess it's only logical for it to be slower and it's also using more cpu cycles during encryption since its number of rounds is much bigger now.

Just another thanks to IainB for info, :up: I'm usually thorough about stuff like this, but this one I overlooked. I'm using Lastpass without any problems since 2010 and My number of "Password Iterations" was only 1, and when I've changed it to 5000 I've noticed that Firefox Lastpass addon is a little slower to login now, but I can live with that. :)

LastPass also performs a large number of rounds of PBKDF2 server-side. This implementation of PBKDF2 client-side and server-side ensures that the two pieces of your data - the part that's stored offline locally and the part that's stored online on LastPass servers- are thoroughly protected:
     (screen capture image, not copied)

By default, the x number of rounds that LastPass uses is 5000. LastPass allows you to customize the number of rounds performed during the client-side encryption process. If you log in to LastPass, open your LastPass vault from the LastPass Icon, and launch Account Settings, you will see the "Password Iterations" field displaying the current number of rounds used for your account. Although 5000 is currently the default number of rounds, your number may be lower if your account is older.

Wow, that was fast, thanks a lot. :D
Conflict with System Explorer seems to be solved with this workaround. Nice idea with a hidden setting without unnecessary gui checkbox. :Thmbsup:

Thanks for welcome.  :)

Yeah, I've seen it, but on main site there are working download mirrors at softpedia and major geeks, which are I believe very trustful sources. Anyway, thank you for considering it, problem I've described is always happenning, I mean every time weather refreshes.

Greetings Skwire, and many thanks for this great little application. There are many tray weather programs, but most of them are bulky, over shiny and over intrusive, so this one is just what I was looking for: tiny, simple, nice, informative and it gets the job done.  :)

Though I found one conflict. I have excellent program "System Explorer" which has advanced tooltip that shows when pointing mouse over it's tray icon. Problem arises when "sWeather" refreshes weather data, it also triggers System Explorer's tooltip which then appears in random positions on my desktop and I have to click anywhere to make it go away. It happens every time sWeather refreshes its weather data so it's a little bit annoying.  :( Just to say that I'm using plain 32bit WinXP sp3.

I hope You can figure out how and why this incompatibility incurs and possibly fix it.  :Thmbsup:

Thanks
