    Psycho absolutly amazing work! I'm quite picky as it's about graphics and well monochrome was the only skin I liked because of that. But all your small improvements.. just awesome! Must be a hell of a job but love the things you did, smart move to put some noise in some screens (use that trick with own designs as well :)) Keep up the great work!

    :D

    I had exactly the same, not sure what caused it but a reboot of my system did the trick.

    Hey Psycho Reptile,

    I noticed that the weather on the Basic Home Screen not displaying the current weather temperature. Instead it displayed the min temperature of the day.

    Oops, just change #infoservice.weather.today.mintemp to #infoservice.weather.today.temp in the common.weather.rss.xml.

    Hi PR,

    great work on the new update! Skin looks better than ever...

    I can confirm this, on my system a reboot helped as well. Perhaps include this in the download instructions somewhere? Or did I just miss it?
