    How about the weather pixie? You can choose between different styles of pixies (I’ve got a Weather Flapper, but there are goths and all kinds of options) and all kinds of different locations in the world; even have more than one. They instantly tell you the weather for wherever you’ve set them; as I’m on holiday, I keep checking Vancouver’s weather pixie and laughing my head off at all the rain they’re getting while I’m away.

    The same way I replied to you in the other thread. You place the code into a text widget

    I do like that one and will be installing it…right after I upload all the images of sculptures that stupid, art-hating Photobucket deleted! Grrrr.

    Did photobucket delete them? Or was it because of bandwidth overusage?

    They give you a limited bandwidth per month with the free account. You can buy a year for $25 USD. I ended up doing that when I saw one of my posts that got Dugg was about to have all the images go up in flames.

    No, photobucket deleted them because although they were art, they were art with nekkid boobies! They’re not cool with that; they once made me delete a painting by Michaelangelo, because Adam wasn’t “draped” properly.

    At least, that is my guess as to why. They have never, not once, replied with anything more specific than “violation of TOS, and you’re fortunate we didn’t delete your entire account, as we are entitled to do”.

    It was a popular post, but I don’t think it got dugg. Digged. Whatevered. Haven’t seen that in the stats.
