    Thanks, would you be able to tell me how I'd go about trying to get core usage percentage? I know it can be done just by looking at System Monitor.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    from this page (a strongly suggested bookmark if your getting into conky)
    http://conky.sourceforge.net/variables.html

    cpu (cpuN) CPU usage in percents. For SMP machines, the CPU number can be provided as an argument. ${cpu cpu0} is the total usage, and ${cpu cpuX} (X >= 1) are individual CPUs.
    so:
    Code:
    ${cpu cpu0} - total usage %
    ${cpu cpu1} - core 1 %
    etc
    is that what you are after?

    @42dorian: Lost my internet connection Fri-Sun (shorted wires at ISP's main terminal).

    Still mauling the details over...

    Got wood yet?!?!?

    VinDSL, how did you do that frosted glass background? Looks good.

    Thanks!

    I've been doing that for a while, but you're the first to notice. Kudos!

    I actually draw it on the wall, using various techniques, in GiMP. LoL!

    It's rather tedious work, but I enjoy the effect.

    Ah...smoke & mirrors. Well played Vin, well played.

    Good luck on the borders (if you use GiMP).

    GiMP doesn't do borders. It uses stroke selection. Heh!

    Actually, it works out better that way (once you get used to it) especially if you want rounded corners.

    EDIT

    @42dorian: The "border" is 0.4 pixel wide.

    Thought you'd appreciate that... LoL!

    I appreciate that you used GIMP for it, yes. That effect seems pretty easy to me. I'm already imagining the steps in my head. As long as you're familiar with graphics programs, it's pretty easy to pull off. Rounded corners and all.

    *EDIT* Yep. I see it in my head now. Select a rectangle from top to bottom of the screen where you intend to do the effect, starting below the rounded corners at the top, and ending above the rounded corners on the bottom. Then, select the circle selection tool, and, holding Shift to add to what you've selected, create a circle at each of the four corners that makes the arcs for the corners for you. Then, Rectangle Selection tool again, hold shift, and rectangular selection down the middle to fill in the area between the circles at the top and bottom, making a total selection in the shape you desire the effect. This may take a few tries for practice, but it is still simple. You then either make a duplicate background image to work on, or keep the effect directly on the actual background. Probably simplest to make a duplicate. Filter>Blur>Gausian Blur. New Layer. Select>Grow Selection>"0.4" pixels. Flood fill the selection on the new layer. Selection>Shrink Selection>"0.4" Pixels, Delete. Congratulations, frosted glass effect on the wallpaper with rounded corners and a "0.4" pixel border around it.

    I used to teach graphics editing and communications technology back in High School

    Would using CS6 and Lightwave be cheating? Graphics is my specialty.
