Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I dig your conky setup, would you mind sharing your config for it?
Of course. However, my conky code is not intelligent but very hardcoded with a lot of "offset" and "Goto" adapted to my low resolution 1280*800. And also because I use it as a slit in Fluxbox together with "own_window_type" as panel (i.e. Conky is always on top), the Fluxbox then changes the original pixel locations within Conky, so I needed to justify for that too.
I think I finally found a replacement for my long time favorite, but aging Windowmaker. Here is openbox with xfce4-panel.
That looks nice and I may try to set up something similar. Xfce (at least the version in 13.37) is slightly broken in that keyboard shortcuts don't always work (and I much prefer those to using the mouse). I guess I really should try a different WM and I always thought we had a package for Openbox in Slackware, but evidently not (though thankfully Chess Griffin has a SlackBuild for it).
