The code in an older post that talks about GeekTool calls the weather images to your desktop through Yahoo. They recently changed the location of these images so the GeekTool code no longer works. If you take the url at the beginning of your GeekTool script and paste it into a browser it will redirect you to the new url. Take that one and paste it back into GeekTool and it will be working again.
Sorry took so long to get this posted.

Swakker is a company that makes iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad apps. They wanted a site to show off what they do best and give a place for their users to easily communicate with them. They came to us with a short timeline because they wanted to get the site up quickly because they had already ordered an ad in Rolling Stone. We quickly got into gear and were able to give them a nice WordPress theme that they could easily edit.
On the homepage, we built a gallery of images with thumbnails. When a thumbnail is clicked, the large image appears. We also built a quick overview section to show off the latest apps. In this section, the user can easily find out information about the new apps without leaving the homepage. A custom sidebar with custom widgets can be found throughout the site.
The apps page is a fully custom page built dynamically with custom fields and normal WordPress posts. The client can enter in the thumbnail, content, video url, features and a url for the link to iTunes. The news page functions like a typically WordPress blog, giving Swakker the chance to update their followers. The gear page is built using pages and children pages to help Swakker build their brand by selling clothes online through PayPal.
Last but not least, the gallery page is built to show off what users have made using Swakker apps. A nice place to get a daily dose of creative inspiration.
Check them out on the web or in iTunes.
