I love your skin, but one thing that bothers me is that the lines next to each of the words are slightly different.

For example, CPU and SWAP have lines that look one pixel wide and clean, but RAM and MAIL have lines that look to be two pixels wide, and looks like its kind of fading.

I've messed around in the files for each .ini, but I'm no professional and I can't seem to find a solution, any help?

I love this! I'm using the weather and gmail part, but the gmail past keeps showing "nothing new" for mail even though I have new mail. :-/

I cannot get the weather skin to work.

I put this in "url=[link]"
and it just displays the degree symbol even after I refresh or restart the skin and program.

Anyone have this problem and could help me with a solution?

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:

Hey, love the skin, but I just have one problem. When using the text clock, if it is past 8pm, it will not say the hour, only the minute, i.e. "fifty one" at 8:51, 9:51, 10:51, 11:51, 12:51 (might be more than just these hours effected, but I haven't tested past this time). Everything else works fine. Any idea what's wrong and/or possible fixes? Thanks in advance.
