    Spam filter has always worked very well - until yesterday. Suddenly, almost all the spam (with obviously bogus addresses) is getting put in the incoming mail box. A lot of these are phishing scams for cheap loans. Please fix.

    1. UTC time. not local
    2. Cannot show only portfolio in module - insists on including an empty watch list with note saying it is empty.

    Happy Holidays to the folks behind the weather module on My Yahoo - it still displays the weather for: "Today, Wed, Thu."

    Today is Wednesday, December 23. My saved weather locations are correctly displayed.

    BUT, for some unknown reason, the display shows the temperature for: "Today , Wed, Thu." Am I to assume that yesterday is today? I am totally confused.

    After seeing my correct location for one month, I assumed that the weather module had finally been fixed.

    The weather module showed my actual location for almost two weeks - I more than half believed that this problem was finally fixed. But, this afternoon it's off to Pacifica. Guess it was just resting up before resuming its peripatetic adventuring.

    Off to Santa Rosa this morning. California has microclimates and the weather 60 miles away has nothing to do with the weather where I am.

    For some reason known only to Yahoo, the weather module is stuck in Oakland. I never go there and I don't really care what the weather is like there.
    I use WeatherBug, a desktop app; it shows me the weather at a station two miles from my house and it never wanders off. Maybe Yahoo should consider switching to that.

    Being somewhat interested in my local weather, I skipped the detect my location feature yesterday and input my actual location into the weather module. It seemed offended - today it has gone off to Petaluma.

    @margo - I think I have figured it out - "my current location" means the location of the weather module, not your computer. However, the weather module seems to travel around a lot whether you do or not.

    In the half hour that my computer has been on, the weather module has shown my location as (1) California; (2) Vacaville CA; and (3) Marshall CA. Yesterday, it did show my correct location, but today it is making up for that by jumping about.

    Weather news is among the most frequently visited sites. I don't understand why Yahoo wants to drive people away (literally and figuratively) from its own site. There's no point in clicking on the wrong location or in asking it to detect your location when it responds by displaying a generic "California."

    Weather module is visiting San Leandro, this morning. And yet, this computer has never left my table.

    After a couple of days at home, the weather module is heading north today. It's already in Santa Rosa, where it's 12 degrees colder than here. Where to next, Seattle maybe?

    It's still in Hayward, but it's showing today as Monday - when in the reality world it's Wednesday. Why do I need two days ago's weather from a place where I don't live?

    Sorry about my error - today it's Hayward CA, not Sunnyvale - I don't live there either.

    Why don't they just add "Greetings from ..." to the weather module instead of pretending it's my location? Today it's Sunnyvale - I don't live there.

    This morning, the weather module had my correct location, but two hours later it's off to Sunnyvale. Why not just rename it "your peripatetic location"?

    The weather module is closer to home today - it has made its way to Daly City. Only a few miles south of me. Keep heading north a little and I'll have my local weather.

    It's at San Jose/Reid-Hillview Arpt CA this morning. Could someone who is responsible for the weather module tell me where that is? And when it will show my actual location?

    Good morning from Millbrae - today's stop for the weather module. It's sunny there, but not where I live.

    When I looked at the weather module, it showed my real location for a change., But, 10 minutes later, when I went back to the My Yahoo page, the weather module had gone to San Jose. Is the weather shuttle bus on the move again? How did it manage to move 48 miles in 10 minutes?

    If the weather module is going to constantly change location - today it's showing Highlands CA - then it would be helpful to include the location's zip code and geographic coordinates, so that I could try to figure out where it is and whether the display has any relevance to my actual location.

    Back to Berkeley again - is this the Silicon Valley shuttle bus weather app?

    Note that "As part of the Silicon Valley, high-tech companies such as Juniper Networks, Fortinet, AMD, NetApp, Spansion, Yahoo!, AppliedMicro and Ariba are headquartered [in Sunnyvale]."

    BUT MY COMPUTER HAS NEVER BEEN THERE!!!

    Less than two hours later, it's off to Sunnyvale. Weather module sure likes to tour the Bay area even as I stay at home

    Pinging the many AT&T servers just gives their locations. Setting a cookie on my PC would fix my location.

    Yesterday, the weather module stayed home. But, today it has gone across the bay to Berkeley, where the weather is warmer and clearer than it is here. The Bay Area has microclimates - 10 miles inland can be 10 degrees warmer. Good thing my thermometer is fixed to the window and can't travel along with the module.

    It's a long way, but the module made it to Vallejo while I went to the store for 1/2 hour.

    I tried clicking on the "detect my location" link in the module - it says I'm in California, which is correct but not the least bit helpful. Another non-working item.

    Off and away this morning to Hidden Valley Lake CA, where the weather is 14 degrees cooler than it is here. Good thing I don't rely on the weather module for accuracy.

    After staying home all day, the weather module scooted off to Pacifica this evening.

    Set a location cookie on my computer so that it knows where it is - not where the ISP server is currently located - AT&T has a gazillion servers in California, but I'm not the least bit interested in their weather.

    Looks like a whirlwind trip today. I went back to the My Yahoo page and the weather module reported from Sunnyvale CA. That's 10 minutes in one place. Surely, you all know where Sunnyvale is - you probably work there - I don't.

    Well, it's off to Campbell,CA this morning.

    What the weather module designers don't understand is that the San Francisco Bay Area has what are known as "micro climates." That means the even a 10 mile discrepancy in location can mean a 10 degree difference in the temperature. That's why it's important to set a cookie on a PC showing the REAL LOCATION, not the location of the ISP's server or whatever whimsy comes up.

    This morning, the module showed my computer's actual location. I turned it off and went out for 1/2 hour. When I turned it back on, the weather module had gone to San Mateo. A cookie stored on the computer could save the correct location - Yahoo has about 10 cookies there already, why not add one more?

    Yesterday the module went to Pacifica - the weather there was great.

    Today, it seems to be back to where I actually live - must be tired from all its travels. Wondering how long it will stay where it belongs.

    I went 1 mile to the grocery store, and, while I was out, the computer thought I had gone to Sunnyvale CA - so it now shows that city's weather in the module.

    Yahoo weather seems to think I've been to Pacifica and San Leandro today. Actually, I only went to the local Safeway and back. I looked at the myriad Yahoo cookies on my computer - none of them store my real location. A simple code stored on my PC could fix this.

    Today, the weather app is showing my location as San Jose/Reid-Hillview Arpt, CA. I can only guess that "Arpt" is an airport.

    Follow my itinerary as My Yahoo flies me from one incredible location to another.

    Try this: Go to Google and type in "local weather," It will put up your actual location - even if you have no Google cookies on your computer. If Google can detect your location, why can't Yahoo.

    Yahoo puts a zillion cookies on everyone's computer, but not a really simple one that would save your location. An entry level coder should be able to write this.

    In another thread, I log my computer's supposed travels. To date, I haven't left the USA, but soon?
