I had PyCharm 3.0 installed in a folder different than the default. The folder was D:/Applications/PyCharm (instead of program files...etc).
Everything was working perfectly.
Today (Dec 22, 2013) I installed an update: PyCharm 3.02 community edition.
Obviously, I wanted the installation again in D:/Applications/PyCharm.
Well, here is the problem: Now the Tips of the Day can not be found.
This is an install package issue. I went back to PyCharm 3.0 (uninstalled 3.02 and installed 3.0 again) and now the Tip of the Day works fine.
PS: I use Win 7 Home Premium.
