Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots
I for one don't understand the importance of a specific reported number for pressure, isn't just the trend (rising or falling) which is important for any particular location (especially for home based meteorology)?

As a side note, I guess an altimeter could theoretical be used to calculate pressure as a function of the altitude reading, so long as you know your true altitude and temperature (I assume altimeters are calibrated at sea level using some standard temperature at 14.1 PSI).
