I've been using this for about a week, and I really like it. I specifically wanted the Network module, because I like seeing my data usage in real-time.
However, I have to ask: how does the module calculate total upload/download? It says I've uploaded 135GB since I activated the skin, and that can't possibly be right.
I run Networx in the background all the time, and it says my total upload for the whole month of September is 32GB. That's still a lot, but it's way more believable.
And in case you're wondering, both are monitoring my motherboard's built-in ethernet adapter, since I'm not using a wireless adapter or anything else.
Nevermind, I read the instructions and found the "variants" section. Sorry.

Great looking skin!

I have a question concerning the Gmail skin.  I have my account set to use only secure connections.  Is there a way to use a more secure method of accessing Gmail?

Thanks in advance...

Wow, what an awesome job you did.  I love it! Very well done, indeed.

Quick question: when I first installed it, it was the perfect size.  I was all set and no issue was found until I restarted my computer and the skins enlarged, not too much, but not what it once was. 

Is there a troubleshoot to change the size of the skins?

I'm really shocked rain-meter doesn't have that option, anyway. 

Thank you!

Thank you!

The glasses suit cannot change sizes without some major edits in the config files. I have rainmeter for years and never a skin enlarged by itself.
Is it possible that your desktop display resolution has changed and that's what caused the 
ppeak Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014
That's very possible.  Strange.  It was the perfect size, then it changed.  Great looking skins, though, regardless!

please check that it works for address…

I get "Please standby" even though most of the weather has loaded, the cloudy forecast doesnt load
VClouds Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014
For some reason the weather info in your location is missing some info like pressure and current weather icon. that's why it wont fully load and show the "Please standby" screen.
You can wait and see if it sorts itself out or manually edit and delete the 'LOADING' section in the bottom of the config.
