Hi there, I'm having trouble getting the mail function to work. I've got two-step verification enabled on gmail, could that be the problem? Other than that, this is fantastic!

Gah, thank you so much for sharing this. I was looking for a really minimalistic Now Playing text to drop on the taskbar of my second monitor and went through a handful of skins before coming across this one. It's EXACTLY what I needed!
Really love this minimalistic look <3
I can't figure out how to get the text time to show in 12 hour format, when I change the %I the hour always disappears, is there a way to fix this? or is it 24 hours for text only?

Thanks for this.  It's wonderful.  The weather skin is not displaying correct info.  Where/how are the location parameters set?

Go look up your location on yahoo weather, find your "WeatherCode" in the URL. It should be the 7 digit string of numbers at the end of the URL. For example, Portland Oregon's is 2475687, found below.


After you've found that number, copy it and paste it into the URL in the weather skin.ini file. Mine looks like this:


One last thing. Change the "p" right before the WeatherCode in that URL to a "w," as seen here:
I couldn't had done this w/o your help; thank you. :)
