    the code is long and probably riddled with cruft
    Ha, I love it. I was actually thinking about doing something like that at some point but I figure there's quite a learning curve. I will definitely be looking at your .conkyrc code.

    everything there is done in a lua script run through conky (using the output of conky variables). It does seem to be quite a learning curve going from conkyrc code to lua scripts.

    not many people have progressed further than a few ring meters and such which is a pity
    but certainly not an impossible task by any means to learn how to code

    Shadow boxes look like a good solution for me, I just need to take some time to learn how use them. I may incorporate them as soon as I learn how to do so. There is a lot to learn here.

    Take your time, it took me forever, just ask mrpeachy.

    Lots of help here if you have questions, don't be shy.

    Well I'm addicted to conky. Been fiddling with it for hours and hours, changing, adding, then removing some of the very code I spent hours tweaking, to get it just how I want it.

    I streamlined my design a little, played around with text sizes and fonts. Also adjusted the color pallet to make it easily visible on nearly any background.

    In the end I also preferred bars over graphs and added my USB flash drive to the filesystem display. I also commented the code to the point of ridiculousness.

    Here's the result.




    Here's the code:

    he mentions addicted (we have another one gang) and then says "just how I want it" ... I give it ... a month: MAX

    and Petro Dawg will be tweaking again.

    commented the code????
    Noooooooo ... you commented the comments that commented the code.

    @ Petro Dawg - Looks good - real good! - What's that first screenshot? #2 is FF 10-2.

    First screen is from FF9. The black mage "Vivi".

    And yes, I'll be tweaking Conky in less than a month, probably less than a couple days.

    Also, I comment extra, because my memory sucks.

    Hmmmmmmmm, I just looked - we don't have 9? How did I miss that?
    I see it's for the PSP. How can I have FF7 for a PS-II and FF-9 is for the original PlayStation?

    Couple of days - YEA, you're addicted, Welcome to the fold!

    no no no, 'memory sucks' is negative, be positive, 'your forgetter is getting better!'

    In that case I have one of the best forgetters there ever was. I'm also a master in wealth avoidance.

    Also, didn't know they released FF7 for PS2. I have 1 - 12 (except 11 as I have no time for MMORPG). Two copies of FF7, one for PS1 and one for PC. I've recently got the PC version installed (with patches) on my WIN7 partition, so I get to do some retro gaming again. I'm thinking about getting FF3 for my phone, but I have better things to spend $15 on ATM.

    Update: reading through conky variables documentation and already tweaking again. That didn't take long, did it?
