Hi ya Bloke,

Sorry to hear you're down again.  Get well soon - you'll feel better ;-) .

Thanx for the above.  I discovered that Albany is YABA, but now I can't 
find out how to get it in the relevant database/txt file.  I thought 
that it could be done in the applet, but alas no.  I found 
~/.kde/share/config/KWeatherServicerc, and 
~/.kde/share/config/panelappletrc but adding YABA to either/both of them 
doesn't have it show up in the applet.

We used to use and recommend Xandros but they went to the dark side
So we'll soon be using and recommending Debian Etch
There are 10 types of people ...
   ... those who understand binary, and those who don't!
They say a marble sized object collided with some gasses, and had
a massive explosion and the universe was born.
   - to believe this takes more faith than I have.
