Great stuff! My favourite RM skin so far. Unfortunately though, it seems the weather widget no longer works properly. I entered my code, but the temperature disappeared and nothing happened. :( Is anyone else having this problem or am I just being a typical amateur?

Can someone give me some instructions on how to input my username and password for Gmail into the .ini so I can see unread notifications?

Two problems: the RSS button you reference, to find my code for weather, I don't know where it is. Can't find it on yahoo weather.
Also, is there a way I can set the "now playing" to not auto-hide? I checked all the hide settings in the txt file to 0 but that didn't fix it.
I love this! Beautiful typographic work. My desktop is looking loads better already. :)

Love this! I'm just having a tiny problem with the Weather strip. I'm using the one with a built-in divider on the bottom.

The words describing the weather ("LIGHT RAIN" in my example) are not lining up on the same horizontal line as the numerical temperature:

Do you know how I can make mine line up properly like yours does? Thanks!

Did you ever find a solution for this? It's just driving me insane that they won't line up. 
I did, but I can't remember what I did!

I went to the Rainmeter main forums, and the solution I got was to turn off Use Direct2D Rendering in the right-click menu. That wasn't a satisfactory solution, since this seemed to have the effect of disabling anti-aliasing (particularly awful on the ultra-thin text).

I think I just messed around with numbers after this until it worked. I also changed the text size because I wanted the weather conditions to display in full without getting truncated with "...". I'm completely clueless about scripting, but I did learn that "r" in RM means "relative to the previous meter", so I think I just experimented until I got something that worked. I'll send you a note with a copy of my config for Weather_white_div-top.
Amazing , thanks !!! :)
