here is my latest revision of conky (click to enlarge):
with the latest .conkyrc file here.
as you can see i added a port inbound/outbound monitor, portage sync status, gentoo linux security advisories and a cool looking date and time (as detailed here)
screenshot is running the conkyrc described in this post, mrxvt and my random wallpaper script from previous posts.
there are some additional scripts that are called in the conkyrc script that you can just google to find. i do not give credit to those sources only because i dont have the url’s, if any of you guys finds them just send me the links so i can give credit where its due.
