Artist's Note

A collection of skins which meet monitoring needs for your system as well as keeping any eye on news, Instagram and your collection of photos. The full breakdown is below, and many of the skins come in several variants to meet different requirements.

2.7.4: Fixed Weather following changes to weather.com feed.
2.7.3: Added Max values to Network meter as requested
2.7.2: Updated LuaCalendar to 4.1.

2.7 brings:

* Windows 8 does not support Aero Blur, skin graphics revised to use Rainmeter's built in graphics functions giving a new, more angular look with subtle graduated tints.
* 6 Core CPU Temperature meter added as requested.
* Volume control and other scrolling functions assigned to new MouseScroll function.
*The usual tweaks & fixes I can't remember!

You need to install current version of Rainmeter which can be found here.

CPU & GPU temperatures are captured by Speedfan which needs to be running in the background.
