I just started looking out the window again. It was nice when they worked but when they started not working I just stopped using them.

The problem is not with any of the widgets, it was with Weather.com but seems to be fixed now.

Correction: NOAA (METAR), Weather.com, MSDN and Google. Just in case one falls over - I got sick of this happening so I just added some built-in resilience.

You really are prolific, Jorge! I have a question for you. Is it possible to buy next years updates to Winstep now?

 

I mean like a renewal for the next 2 years, 3 even?

Or is it a one year at a time deal?

Sorry, not possible, for a variety of reasons. In the end this works to your advantage too, as for you (and everyone else) to renew every year I have to keep adding cool new stuff to Winstep software.
