Really good looking with great features and I'd love to use it, BUT, I live in Australia?? Any plans to allow people outside USA it's pleasures?

The weather forecaster portion DOES work in Australia, and everywhere else in the world. Only the satellite and radar is limited to U.S. only, as it says in the description. You should download one of the forecaster-only versions.

I just heard from Stardock about a solution to performance problems with LookingGlass.

You should use Regedit and set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stardock\DesktopX\DynBitmapCaching=1

This turns on Dynamic Bitmap Caching. On the machines I have tested this on that had "memory allocation issues" with LookingGlass before, setting this value to 1 reduced DX memory usage by 60-85%. It makes a HUGE difference. One machine went from allocating 317MB to 46MB. If you are not having any such problems, it is probably because this is already set properly in your version of DX. I am told it will be turned on by default in the next release.

Ya know - This is still the BEST weather object I've ever seen! I'd love to see it updated for the newer version(s) of DesktopX product.
