The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

did a little conky refinement: mem and filesystem bar lengths proportional to the size and automatic detection of the network interface with individual data

@nemesis2all

Looks like that rom building is really taking some intensive computing. 8 cores running at 100%, wow. I assume it is a quad core with hyperthreading or such.

That is correct. Core I7-860. Rom building does really tax your system. If I build on my ssd I can get the time down to around 15 mins. Most computers take around 45 mins to an hour to build.

Not much changes on my LMDE desktop.

LMDE set to 'testing' with an upgraded generic 2.6.37 Linux kernel.
I went with a 'retro' Mint wallpaper (with a minor modification +debian swirl) A simple, yet elegant 2-color Conky.

I like my 'desktop' simple, minimal, dark . . . just does what I want the OS to do and stays out of my way.

Side-note: I do not have only 1.00 GHz Freq. ... that is the 'Energy-Saving Mode' Normally, runs with 2.9 GHz Frequency.

I really like the colors you used with conky. Mind letting me know what color codes you used or could you paste your conky script?

@ nemesis2all and zerozero . . . as requested my Conkyrc script is posted here > http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 99#p379499

Also, my uptime is usually measured in 'weeks' and not hours. :lol:

Lou, there ain't no way you will stay with that long. I mean you do good quality, but that is not you. (Unless they got to you 1984 Orwellian style.)
