Yes, I did do this (and unfortunately made a stupid post under another  
subject). Anyway, my source says as expected:

<img src="/skins/default/img/weather/" class="alpha_png" alt="">

as you can see there is no link to the exact image only to the folder.  
And if I manually check the path to the folder it is accessible. And  
all the images have the right permissions right. It's just not right  
in the source. Why this is must be some error on MythWeb parsing the  
info since running the script manually gives the same output as shown  
previous (and the same you got yourself). So basically now I know for  
a fact that this must be MythWeb and not Apache. Any other thoughts?
