    It's NOT a meta game... it's very slow paced... forces your mind to spin down.

    All hail, Paramvir! Heh! You are the King of Bash! That's a PERFECT solution!

    I've been messing about with those AM/PM settings since day-one. I get it where I want, then tomorrow, I hate the look, and I change it again. And, the day after that. And, next week. Over, and over, and over, again.

    It's probably some sort of psychological defect -- obsessing over the look n' feel of AM PM. LoL!

    Anyway, that will make things much easier. Good job!

    EDIT

    Works like a champ! Allowed me to apply my favorite format.

    Code:
    # -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    # Use UPPERCASE or lowercase AM PM or am pm for 12 hour time format
    # -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    # [0] ALL UPPERCASE (example: 03:00 PM)
    # [1] all lowercase (example: 03:00 pm)
    # [2] Hide am pm (example: 03:00)
    # [3] all lowercase with no padding/spacing (example: 3:00pm)
    # [4] Use custom time format - state the format in custom_time_format
    # NOTE: This will only work if Time_format=12 (below)
    show_lowercase_ampm=4
    
    # -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    # Set custom time format - see man date in a terminal to get more options
    # Be sure to quote the time format in single quotes as shown
    # -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    # custom_time_format='+%_I:%M%P'
    custom_time_format='+%l:%M %p'
    That's the format I've stuck with the longest, in all sorts of programs...

    Hey thanks - feels good to be appreciated
    But getting the stuff to work right some times takes a while.

    The xml data has higher precision than the main Location data which is usually from a govt weather station.

    So if one switches between using the xml or Location the trends go out of the window.

    Something I just figured out when I read your post again - you are only using Location - but the trends should work any way - that's what a user would expect.

    I love this investigation ha ha ha ha
    Hey F1 is happening here later in the month I have to find some passes search in time saves nine ha ha ha other wise me in for a Bier bar with a wall sized Screen Uahhahaha - one needs to book for that as well !!!

    you might want to automatically change the fomat depending on the the out put of "date +%H"

    I might try that, thanks!

    As an aside, a mechanic told me once, "Always leave one of the bolts on your rear bumper loose."

    "Why?" I asked.

    "Because that's where the problems will go. Better to have your bumper fall off, than your transmission."

    I guess I enjoy being tormented by the AM PM format and spacing. I dunno...

    It's probably better that we create problems with conkywx.conf (the rear bumper), rather than conkywx.sh (the transmission).

    Brilliant idea, really!

    I haven't mentioned it, but since you brought it up, maybe it's time.

    I have yet to get XML data (in my locale) to display correctly in Conkywx.

    I haven't tried it in (probably) the past week, but if I remember correctly, the current temp comes up in metric units, everything else in imperial.

    I figured I will cross that bridge when I get there. For now, Location (only) is working just fine, and I didn't feel it was worth messing with, at this juncture.

    Try it again - that was fixed in 0.7.5 - was found in the Arch forums

    w00t! Works...Yeah!

    I tried a different RapidFire PWS. I was using the closest one, a few blocks away in someone's backyard, no doubt. LoL! This one is a few miles away, at an elementary school (thus, an unofficial quasi-government weather station).

    Gotta love WU!

    New PWS didn't work at first, due to operator error.

    Had to encase the Location URL in double-quotes ("). Now it works fine!

    I compared the XML data to the WU website, and it matches.

    Thanks, for the update. Gonna check the metric side now.

    Onward and upward...
