hmmm, sadly it looks like we may need to just retire the applet. I'll re-open this bug for a bit and see if any further suggestions/info pops up.

Could the applet be re-wrote to use Google weather? I have heard it is open API and easy to code for. ( I cant code, or I would certainly do it)

I also posted this in AWN forums:

In my I changed line 636, line 650 and line 682 where it reads "xoap" to "xml" and this works without problems for me. I ran this on the last update to weather applet and the latest update to weather applet as well. If it's legal or not I don't know (in regard to subscriptions) but it works.

Best regards,
