Hey Andre, patches are great, you can avoid the pain of manually editing
large text files. I've assumed that you are using the latest Feisty
version of gweather. Here's how to apply this patch:

1. Download the patch to your home directory
2. Run a terminal, then enter the following commands
3. cd /usr/share/gnome-applets/gweather
4. sudo patch < ~/gweather-williamtown.patch

.. if all goes well it should say "patching file Locations.xml"
When that is done, change the preferences in the panel applet, update
the applet and see if it works. Let me know how it goes. If all is good,
I will send the patch to the relevant projects.
