Very nice skin. But how do you change the location for the Weather window? I don't care about the weather in Lexington. Also, couldn't find the readme.txt file for this skin. Thanks!

Sorry I didn't reply before now. To view the ReadMe.txt file, just add ".zip" (without the quotes) to the end of the filename (i.e., rename it Steam.r2skin.zip). Then unzip the file, and the readme.txt can be viewed inside. When you're done, just delete the ".zip" from the end of the filename.

To change the weather, just go to the MSN RSS site (the URL is in the skin properties window). I couldn't find a better way to figure out the correct URL except through trial and error. In the U.S., just enter the state and then play around with the 4-digit number code until you have the city you're looking for (the code MUST be 4 digits, so you'll have to enter leading zeros for codes under 1000, like "0024" or "0127"). Then copy that URL to the properties window. Hope this helps.

I love the look of this skin, but the functionality of the weather module is just horrible.

I've been trying for hours to set it to my city - Boston, MA, with absolutely no luck. I've read numerous articles in this forum and tried all of the solutions mentioned - all of which, by the way, require you to dig through code to find the MSN location code for the city you want. I've also done too many Google searches to try and find how to specify the location for weather. I've come up empty every time.

Based on what I've seen, this function needs to be drastically simplified. When you consider that the most recent post in this thread is 2 years old and the issue still persists, that tells you it needs addressing - immediately.

How about simply entering a zip or postal code?

Please tell me how to find the proper code for my location. And please do not reiterate what has already been posted here - I've tried all the suggestions and they do not work. Please do not tell me I'll have to move to Lexington, KY.

I love this skin! I spent most of the day going through skins for Rainlendar and this one is by far the clearest and easiest to read. The size is perfect (a little bigger than most) and the text is not blurry like most of the others. Thanks for making this :)

If you ever do an update, it would be great if you could add scroll arrows in the main calendar (for next month/previous month) - the right and left arrows on the keyboard do the job but this would be a nice feature.
