Running Ubuntu 16.04... My-weather indicator places the weather forecast data in the syslog every time it checks the weather. It works OK ... but I am wondering if this is normal and why it is doing this... previous versions of Ubuntu did not have this "feature"

    OK I figured it out ... when they fixed this error ( bugs.launchpad.net/my-weather-indicator/+bug/1568774 ) they waited for the error message and then created an exception which allowed it to get the weather but also created a lengthy error message each time ... I just followed the instruction to remove the s in https in query.yahooapis.com in /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/my-weather-indicator/share/my-weather-indicator/wyahooapi.py (line 108). and that solved the issue. no more syslog full of weather. – Jonathan Lathrop Jun 1 '16 at 16:08

No more syslog full of weather.
