Kate Beckinsale had a talented actor Dad, Richard, who I remember from the great BBC 'Porridge' series in the 70's;

It was a tragedy that he died so young.

Conky is art in and of itself!

I will definitely not cut off an ear!!!  :D

However, I'm not the artist.  All of this work was done by others and I just copied it and decorated my desktop with it.  Just change some colors and voilà!  Though I did forget your contribution via the great gmusicbrowser!  So here's a shot with it included...



Some will think it too busy.  Oh well...

working on some eye candy - e17 on VSIDO:



default theme isn't too bad; probably just go with it for now.

^ Nice... Does e17 require a lot of resources?

No, I'll get conky set up later.

It's always been pitched as a low resource window manager; however, up until recently it has always been unstable. I would get seg faults on a regular basis with the 0.16 versions. Lowrider at #! claims the 0.17 (first stable release) versions are good so I'm taking a look.

I've always liked it since it is very similar to fvwm (the original enlightenment project was derived/forked from fvwm, I believe).

Besides the instability, the lack of themes (they were all glassy so little variety) and the difficulty of creating your own theme have really held it back. IMO Xfce (another fvwm derivative, I think) has really surpassed it in any functional and aesthetic sense without hogging the resources.

edit - add conky to startup apps:



e17 uses it's compositor by default; conky made transparent with argb settings.

I started this as a simple cutout type background.
The more I looked at it...
I realized if your point of focus is the top of the letters, it appears inset in the background.
However if your point of focus is the bottom of the letters it appears to be sitting on top of the background.
Is it just me?

The view's not that bad you just have to punch the knothole out.

^ Very nice...  Especially that Neil Young's Harvest Moon is playing!

Incredibly great taste!

Thank-you very much sir!   8)

All the Conky's and their respective lua/scripts are listed in the Conky thread.  Just changed to Teo's weather, which a google search will find for anyone who wants to use it...
