* Regarding Weather: Yahoo! is shutting down their previously freely available PlaceFinder API which we used to fetch the weather for your location. This means that the service is currently unavailable. We are searching for alternatives, but every other services is paid. In order to cover our costs as a two person family business, we’ll probably charge for the Weather service in the future and at the same time provide a much more reliable solution.
