While listening to Lou Reed no less  :o

I was reading where there is a mini-series or Lord of the Rings type project in the works for the Dark Tower series (we're both talkin' Stephen King books, right?). Rather ambitious project.

Some i3 -

messing with stumpwm the last couple days has made me appreciate the elegance of fluxbox and i3 all the more.

Edit - this is more what I was looking for in a manual tiling wm:

All the bad weather here in New England, decided to go back to arclance's weather script for the radar and satellite imagery.  Right side Conky is based on McLovin's bars. GMusicBrowser layout by VastOne.  And, lest anyone wonder, distro by VastOne as well...

Got my 'Black and Blue' back!  My favorite theme for Fluxbox.  Very easy on the eyes, as well as being very visually appealing.  It is attached if anyone would like to have it!  For it to work properly, DO NOT install it to the ~/.themes directory.  Be sure to put it in /usr/share/themes.

Clean;

My powersupply went out with a loud bang (TWWSS joke is allowed, Jedi and VastOne!) and took my harddrive and graphiccard with it in the fall.
Got a new and shiny SSD ordered and delivered to me yesterday, and i'm sure I have some sort of a powersupply somewhere. As for graphicscard?
mhm Onboard thingamabob till i decide what card to go with (Had a 640GT, so meh. Some card in the $200 range would be good. Recommendations welcome)

Minor tweaks - removed the clock from conkyrc, and replaced xclock in the taskbar with an FvwmScript for date and time:

(http://s24.postimg.org/qdqut0e35/fvwm_vsido_scrot.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/qdqut0e35/)

Direct link to fvwm screenshot. (http://s24.postimg.org/4ekg5sx91/fvwm_vsido_scrot.png)

Going to delve into FvwmScript some more. I have scripts for the battery % and cpu temps; if I can write my own for uptime, cpu%, mem%, and/or network traffic, I can replace conky and have an all Fvwm desktop.
Title: Re: February 2015 Screenshots
Post by: jedi on February 20, 2015, 11:27:46 PM
Wow PackRat, that is really awesome!  Might have to try me some Fvwm...
Love that look...
Title: Re: February 2015 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on February 21, 2015, 02:01:20 AM
thanks

Getting the FvwmScripts set up was a bit easier than I thought it would be -

(http://s29.postimg.org/3oud6yjhf/February_1424481888_1366x768.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/3oud6yjhf/)

Direct link (http://s29.postimg.org/6vowql3xj/February_1424481888_1366x768.jpg)

but the memory hit is a bit high - pushing double digits just idling; stuck with conky for now.

Edit - my mistake; my equation to calculate memory includes the buffer and cache memory; recalculate for just the RAM like conky and memory % at idle remains 5.x %.

This is more like it - all system information from FvwmScript; battery and clock in the taskbar so they are un-obscured:

@jedi - nice; what are the specs on that particular computer?

some fvwm - system information is mostly xosview; two FvwmScripts for uptime and cpu temp.
