Personally, I think that any conky or other visual information is a "Visual pollution". It is important to have diagnostic tools at the right time, but keeping it on the screen is distracting for better task like "when will be the party with my friends". So, perhaps I could help you with conky because I already was trying with it, but honestly, what you achieved is "good enough" and I personally recommend you move asap to the next project ("scratching the back of your (girl)friend like the neanderthalers made it since 100.000 years"? or other linux projects).

Very nice, on OpenBSD I like to use xconsole(1) with simple cron scripts echoing to /dev/console

I download and parse weather info from NOAA, echo cpu temp and other stats. Plus you will see some OpenBSD specific events to /dev/console.

Note, if you decide to pull from NOAA you should only pull info at most once per around 90 minutes or so. If you pull too often your IP will be banned.

This is uncalled for, I am wondering if I should report this, but holding off for now.

Anyway, //////, I found my Conky config I use to use when on OpenBSD and it is attached here.
