minor kvetching about Rainmeter
Finally figured out why weather widgets/skins for Rainmeter almost always stop working after a few months and need to be patched constantly. The vast majority of them scrape XML feeds or webpages with regexes to get their data.
Someone finally wrote a plugin that uses APIs like a sane piece of software would, but you have to modify the weather widget to support it if it doesn't already. Think I might make retrofitting the Gnometer widget this weekend's project.
