Whatever happened to the now-neutered functionality of the weather widgets? Mine have been showing up blank for a couple months. They used to work fine, but started getting spotty, and eventually just stopped working altogether. I found them useful.

What other Dashboard widgets have been neutered?

Most all of them, Apple has killed Dashboard off.

I have had many of my weather widgets die also.
However, I have been using one I got from NOAA and it’s been behaving quite well for a while now.

It just says “weather.wdgt” version 2.0.8, Jul, 4, 18 at 4:59 AM.
There's a reference to CH4 Productions on it but a search reveals nothing.

I Wish I had a link for you.

Might this help?

Also read somewhere that disabling SIP cured it in later OS versions.

This one gets data from NOAA & works in 10.13.6...

That looks like the one (in second link) I have, except I have a 2.0.8 version which works for me in High Sierra and still works.

I could zip it up, and upload it here if you think it is OK BD ? Let Me Know.

It'd be OK by me, not sure how you'd do that, perhaps eMailing to requests would work?

So does that mean if anyone requests it, I could just attach it to an email using their pm or email ?

It's 7MB, and you just have to plop it into 'Main HD/Library/Widgets' folder and it should work.

Yes, but PM & board eMail doesn't allow attachments, but once contacted via either of those regular eMail will work, & once unzipped where you see the .wdgt one can just double click on the .wdgt to install it. :)

Will PM you my reg eMail.

Ah.. Yes, thats right, it will self-install.
OK. so i'll just wait until/if someone requests it.
Thanks

btw, I can't recall but did I ever send you any $$ for the PowerPC Power Supply.
My old Mirror Door is dusty but I think it still works.

I don't remember on the PSU, but let's call it good. :)

Need any more PPC parts before my son throws them out? :g3:

You can eMail me a copy of it if you will.
