Awesome! All patches have been removed as they are no longer needed.

The sun was shining on the sea, shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make the billows smooth and bright —
And this was odd, because it was the middle of the night.
The sea was wet as wet could be, the sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because no cloud was in the sky:
No weather skins were working now — no Wxdata was the reason why.
The Morley and the Mordasius were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see such quantities of broken weather skins:
"If only there was a free API, not bought out by a soulless massively wealthy tech company,"
They said, "it would be grand!"
"If seven developers with seven laptops coded for half a year,
Do you suppose," the Morley said, "That they could make a decent API that was free and clear?"
"I doubt it," said the Mordasius, and shed a bitter tear.
"O Rainmeter devs, come and parse with us!" the Morley did beseech.
"A simple include, or maybe two, and a sample for all to teach:
We cannot make it simpler than that, to give a hand to each."
A few young Developers hurried up, all eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed, their regexps were clean and neat —
And this was odd, because, you know, they'd been eating Cool Ranch Doritos for a week.
Four other Developers followed them, and yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last, and more, and more, and more —
All parsing though the data streams, no longer such a chore.
"The time has come," the Morley said, "To talk of many things:
Of WebParsers — and regexps — of substitutes and strings —
And why include files make building weather skins a snap — and whether pigs have wings."
"O Developers," said the Mordasius, "You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be retrofitting weather skins again?" But answer came there none —
And this was scarcely odd, because they'd fixed up every one.
This is brilliant! I cracked up!

Been using Alice Reworked on my second monitor, never thought I'd see that one fixed. Thanks a million!
