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.
3. Items are double spaced in Chrome browser - takes up too much space.
Time is showing as UTC time, not local time. Very annoying!
Today is Thursday, December 24; it's Christmas Eve.
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.
Woke up at home this morning, but the weather module thinks I'm in Sunnyvale again.
It has been a while since my last visit to Sunnyvale in the weather module - did you all think I missed it? I didn't. Thought this had been fixed, but it isn't.
I suppose that I should be grateful that my location was correct for one month, but now the weather module has returned to Sunnyvale. Not helpful!
After seeing my correct location for one month, I assumed that the weather module had finally been fixed.
But this morning it's off to Sunnyvale again. Look up peripatetic in the dictionary - it's the best adjective to describe Yahoo's module performance.
My location is not Sunnyvale tonight or ever!
Thank you for the information, Yahoo. It is 10 degrees warmer in Sunnyvale than it is here. But, I had to use a different weather app to find that out.
Is the weather module designed to torment its users? After 11 days at home, it's back to Sunnyvale this morning. Hello, Yahoo, hope you're enjoying the warmer weather than we have.
Very hot in Sunnyvale today - glad the weather module is there, but I'm not!
Weather module came home for lunch and dinner, but it seems to be spending the evening in Sunnyvale. Please send it home when it gets late.
Hello again, Yahoo weather in Sunnyvale. Would much prefer to see my local weather.
Sunnyvale again! Weather module is still not permanently fixed. Much hotter there than here.
One day resting up at home, and the weather module has gone back to Sunnyvale, home of Yahoo. Once again, I can only ask why, oh why, does Yahoo think that I am interested in their weather?
Yahoo is in Sunnyvale; my location is not Sunnyvale. Why on earth do the weather module designers think that I am interested in the weather there?
Stop playing games with the weather module! It stayed at my correct location for 10 days, but now it's off to Sunnyvale again. I don't want to know what the weather is like at Yahoo's headquarters - I want to know what MY weather is.
Two days at home, and the weather module is off to Sunnyvale, where it's much warmer than here. Intermittent fixes don't stay 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.
Half an hour later, it's off to Sunnyvale - looks like a busy travelling day for the weather module.
Onward to Hayward where it's 14 degrees warmer than at my location. Maybe it's a heat-seeking weather module.
Getting adventurous, the weather module found the way to San Jose while I was sleeping at home.
I give up - please tell me where Byron, CA is. It's not my location.
A new stop on the weather module's never-ending journey - Fremont this morning.
In the last 24 hours, the weather module, but not me, has visited Castro Valley twice, Pacifica twice, and now Union City. (And it has sent several location inquiries to my computer, but has ignored them.)
Didn't like Berkeley either. Went to Pacifica.
Guess it didn't like Castro Valley, now it's in Berkeley. I'm still at home.
On to Castro Valley - how many different "my locations" can one weather module on one stationary PC visit?
Don't know why the weather module has gone to Pacifica this morning. The weather isn't very nice there.
San Leandro Ca this morning - another stop on the weather module's journey thru space and time.
Coming closer to home, the weather module is in Castro Valley CA this morning
Do Yahoo people read these comments? Can't Yahoo fix this insanity?
Has anyone ever heard of Pruneyard Dry Creek, Campbell CA? That's where the weather module has fixed my location this afternoon. Campbell is about 100 miles south of Santa Rosa, where the module located me this morning. I haven't been to either place.
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.
I took all the news links off My Yahoo and use Feedly for that.
The weather module is adventurous and patriotic today. It's off to American Canyon for the holiday. I am celebrating Memorial Day at home, however.
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.
The weather module is in Oakland this morning.
I removed all of the other "local" services on the My Yahoo page - can't say that I'm interested in local news from other places.
Didn't like Petaluma - went to Union City instead, while I went nowhere outside of my own location.
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.
The weather module has found a new place to visit - Windsor CA. Neither my computer nor I have ever been there.
Three minutes later, it shows Tara Hills, another mystery place.
Does anyone from Yahoo ever read these posts?
I clicked on the detect my location link and it put up "Weather CA." Is that a location? Meanwhile, Chrome browser is showing that the My Yahoo page is tracking my location. It's sort of correct - I am in California, but not in Weather.
Is there really such a place as Montalvin Manor CA? That's where the weather module seems to think (?) I am.
And it's off to San Jose again, after resting up at home for a few days.
I am not in San Jose. The weather module has traveled over 100 miles in the last few days, but never to my location.
Santa Cruz in the morning, Santa Rosa this evening. Is Santa prefix mandatory today? I am not in Santa Rosa.
And now the weather module is in Santa Cruz, but it doesn't say whether it is on the boardwalk or downtown in the plaza. If it is going to be wrong, it could at least be specific.
Weather module is in Antioch this morning, continuing its journey while I stay home elsewhere.
I wish I were in San Jose along with the weather module - it's 17 degrees warmer there than it is here.
My computer is not in San Jose - why is the weather module there?
San Ramon this morning - please send the weather module home.
Solano Middle School, Vallejo CA is what the weather module is showing.
ENOUGH ALREADY YAHOO - FIX THIS APP.
Module went back to Oakland as the weather warmed - but I haven't gone anywhere today and I'm not in Oakland.
It's seven degrees warmer in Benicia than where my computer is located. No wonder the weather module is staying there.
And then back to Benicia, one half hour later.
Too warm in Benicia? Weather module went back to Oakland.
Too cool in Oakland, so the module headed inland to Benicia.
Oakland this morning. The weather module that is. My computer has never been there.
Module went back to Benicia where it's 90 degrees. However, my thermometer reads 53 degrees. Totally useless app for seeing my local weather - I only keep it for a quick look at the weather in locations where my friends live. But, I really don't trust its accuracy anywhere.
Moved again - to Oakland where it's still warmer than here.
It has cooled off here at the coast, so the weather module has headed inland to Benicia again. Would be nice if this were ever fixed.
I set my correct location in the weather module and on the weather page. Notwithstanding this, the weather module has gone off to Richmond this morning. The journey continues.
An hour later, I'm still at home with my computer, eating breakfast, but the weather module is in Newark CA.
Not only is the weather module travelling again, but also it isn't sure where it is. It's offering two locations at once today: "Parkmont, Fremont CA" If I were in either place, I'd be a lot warmer.
The weather module showed my correct location for several days - I thought it was fixed. But now it's resumed its peripatetic journey, off to Oakley it has gone.
Benicia, again - there's an oil refinery there, but not my computer.
Really travelling today - it's in Benicia now!
And now it's gone to San Jose/Reid Hillview Arpt. I always wanted to know what the weather was like in an "Arpt" - whatever that is.
Somewhere new today - the weather module shows my location as Castro Valley. Wrong as usual.
And on to Emeryville; where else today?
The weather module stayed home for the weekend, but it's heading inland to Oakland this morning.
And now the weather module is off to Penngrove CA. Setting the correct location on the weather page lasted for exactly TWO DAYS!
I clicked on the module's link to more weather - the weather page showed my location as Petaluma CA - wrong again! I told the weather page to detect my location and it insisted that I am in Petaluma. Typed in my zip code and it put up the correct location. Clicked to set it as the correct location - but I'd be willing to bet that it won't last long.
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.
I do not understand why it is so difficult for the programmers to set a cookie in the Yahoo cookie collection showing the permanent location of a desktop PC.
Nor am I in Pacifica CA. I tried resetting my location on the weather page. It stayed at the correct location for approximately 20 hours and then took off again.
I am not in Tomales CA or any of the other census locations that the weather module visits.
I'm not in Sunnyvale either, but the weather module is there now.
Cambrian Park, CA? Sounds prehistoric, but it's not my location.
Learn something new every day. Here's what I learned about Elmira. It is a census-designated place in Solano County, California, United States. The population was 188 at the 2010 census. Area: 340 acres.
I am not one of the 188 residents even if My(?) Yahoo thinks I am.
Why not simply rename the weather module "Today in Geography"? Today, it says my location is Elmira CA. The only Elmira I know is in New York. I haven't been to NY in many years. My computer has never been to Elmira CA. Guess I'll have to Google it.
After showing the correct location for two days, the weather module is off again - to Pinole, CA.
Still in San Jose this morning - it's considerably warmer there than here.
Switched right back to San Jose. Hope whoever is reviewing these comments enjoys the tour - I don't.
It moved to Sunnyvale - guess it was too warm in San Jose.
The Yahoo weather module is still in San Jose. I clicked on the "detect my location" link and it put up California, which has an area of 163,696 square miles and a large range of temperatures.
When I do a Google search for any topic, the bottom footer on the results page shows my location without being asked. And it is always correct. Why can Google correctly detect my location but Yahoo can't?
Really travelling today - the weather module has found the way to San Jose. Please bring it back home.
And back to Daly City - what a dizzying trip.
Just left Daly City for Sunnyvale.
In twenty four hours, the weather module has shown five different locations for my computer. This morning, it thinks I'm in Daly City. At least, Cutie-Pie gets to visit more interesting places.
This is insane! Now it's showing the weather in Freedom, CA. Where could that be? It's not in the SF Bay area!
Back to Oakland 3 minutes later!
Onward to Sunnyvale - where next?
Starting the day in Oakland CA; preparing for another tour of the Bay area.
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."
Again, a couple of days with the correct location, but it's off to Sunnyvale again. As I've posted many times, setting a simple cookie on a non-mobile PC would fix this.
A few days with the correct location - I thought it had been fixed, but today it's off again.Now it's gone to New Almaden, a place I never heard of.
The weather module started out the day where I live, but now it's off to Sunnyvale - following the shuttle route again?
Beach weather today - it's Pacifica again.
Heading back towards the coast - it's in Oakland now.
Inland today - it's in Petaluma where it's cooler than here.
It's running the Yahoo shuttle again - back to Pacifica from Sunnyvale.
An hour later, it's moved on to Sunnyvale.
There's supposed to be a heat wave coming to the bay area. Is that why the weather module is off to Pacifica this morning?
Where is Fulton CA and why is it so cold there?
On to San Ramon - what a boring tour of the area.
Ever on the hunt for new places to visit, the weather module has gone to Union City today.
And it's off to San Bruno today. Whee!
When I started keeping track of its peregrinations, the weather module had gone to Comptche CA. After all this time, it has wandered there again - and I found out that there really is such a place. But my computer is not located there.
If the weather module set a cookie, it would know that I am not located in San Bruno. Doesn't Yahoo have anyone who can write a program that sets a location cookie on a PC?
The weather module is getting adventurous - visiting Santa Cruz today, but it doesn't say whether it's on the Boardwalk or just downtown.
El Cerrito this afternoon - thanks a lot, Yahoo - I don't love there.
Weather module is still in San Leandro.
If I go to Google and type in "local weather," it puts up my actual location - and I have no Google cookies on this computer. If Google can detect my location, why can't Yahoo.
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?
Where is New Almaden CA? And why should I think I'm there?
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?
Petaluma CA this morning.
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.
I give up. Where is Canyon CA? It is 16 degrees cooler in Canyon than it is where my computer is permanently located.
I am not in Berkeley - but the weather module is stuck there. Makes me wonder if I can trust the weather in other locations I have added.
And now it's back in Berkeley - shuttle bus GPS? Not where I am.
Oops, it just went to Oakley, wherever that is.
The shuttle bus is up and running - the weather module is in Sunnyvale.
Seems to like Berkeley - it's still there - I'm not.
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!!!
Half hour later, it's back to Berkeley. Whee!
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.
Berkeley this morning - it's warmer there than here.
And now it's visiting Vallejo - it's raining there too.
Cambrian Park CA this morning - module is getting adventurist,
It's raining in Pacifica this morning - the weather module is there to see it.
Still stuck in Berkeley this morning. Pathetic.
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.
Where is Willits CA? Only the weather module knows for sure. It's really not my location.
And back to Pacifica - the weather module loves the coast. Wish it knew where I really am.
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?
Where is Tara Hills? Only the inaccurate weather module knows and visits there today.
The weather module is heading south again. San Mateo this morning.
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.
Back to the beach - it's Pacifica again, where the weather is lovely, but not mine. Good thing I don't rely on Yahoo for the weather reports.
What a month of travels - I'm back at San Jose/Reid-Hillview Arpt, CA (the airport, I guess). Maybe my weather module will someday find its way home.
Pacifica again today - the weather module seems to like to be there.
After a one day holiday at my actual location, the weather module has sent my computer to San Leandro once again. Will Disneyland be far ahead?
I'm barely awake and still at home. But, the weather module thinks I'm in San Pablo this morning. Very confusing.
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.
Pacifica, CA is a lovely place to visit, but my computer has never been there, notwithstanding the location shown in the weather module.
Where is Byron, CA? My computer thinks it's there today, but it's still sitting on my table at home!
Today, it's been to Pleasantview, CA and then back to Berkeley in less than 2 hours. Where to next?
Today, the weather module finds me in Berkeley, CA, which is not very far from where I am. Later, who knows where?
Amazingly, today the computer is in Scotts Valley CA according to the weather module on My Yahoo. Neither I nor the computer have left home, according to the view from my window.
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.
There's another thread in the Errors section, with even more complaints.
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?
