Weather sidebar gadget Vista. 2 minutes anyone ?

If anyone is desperately bored :) I haven't been able to get Blackpool as a location to work with Vistas weather gadget. Don't suppose some kind soul would care to confirm it.
Have always had that showing and since last wednesday it has been "stuck" showing 14 degrees and old info. Drag it from the sidebar and it goes blank.
Other locations work 100% OK... it can't possibly be a PC problem can it. Some weird stored value somewhere.
Sorry I know it's a bit of a daft help request but it's been a long time out of action for a "website"

Yay :) The power of the Wibly Wobbly Web
Think it's fixed, delete the gadget, locate the folder,
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s Live\Services\Cache\weather

and delete it. Set up the gadget again and a new folder is created. Looking good up to now.
Will link the other thread to this.

Does anyone else find it strange that occasionally we get two threads running about a particular subject that to most would appear somewhat obscure?

Yep :)
