I am having intermittent problems as other have stated: sWeather goes "blank" at times, reporting NO DATA for all locations (even Codyville!).

I've noticed this as well and it's a Yahoo! Weather API issue.   >:(  Unfortunately, I can't do anything about it.    :(

Does the auto-refresh timer reset when you manually refresh? The data loads properly when you manually refresh, so thinking maybe the auto-refresh is not waiting long enough for Yahoo (or whatever it is going to be called) to send the requested data? I noticed that there is a very pregnant pause when you manually refresh.

Perhaps make the main windows a little larger so that the status update doesn't overwrite most of the day's weather forecast.

See attachment.

Thanks for the API fix! The connection to the Yahoo server seems to be working. Just a few still with grokking the API data:
1) I think some of the data is being misread. The "Feels like" is showing as 28C but it is 3C outside. The wind speed is 54 km/h, 100% humidity and a massive barometer reading. No tropical storm outside.  :)
2) The time for sunrise and sunset is dropping the trailing 0 e.g. 7:00 am is showing as 7:0 am.
3) The date/time in the title bar is fixed at Thursday, January 1 0:00 AM.

Thanks for all the work though.


PS I have no issue (or noticed any) with responsiveness though I do have a pretty fast rig and a very fast fibre connection.
