General ramblings and some place to post things that I find interesting
Conky is a cool little application for linux that will show you all kinds of neat information about your system. Things like CPU, Memory, Disk usage, running processes, network information etc. etc.
I've written some custom scripts to get the local radar, weather forecast and display them from within conky. The scripts run every five minutes and refresh the radar image as well as the forecast information. In the link below I've included all of the scripts to get this working for the OKC area, if your location is different you will need to edit the scripts to get the correct information about your location.
