I kind of like how you have Conky (I'm guessing it's Conky) set up with the CPU intensive processes in the CPU area and the RAM intensive processes in the Memory area. I just have mine lumped together in a Processes type area but I think your way is a little nicer. I might spend some time twerking my .conkyrc

I've had it for so long I forgot where I got it.

I think it was from a list of other 1440x900 wallpapers that my friend linked to me.

No actual desktop right now because I'm making some changes, but it's still kind-of interesting. I have sooo much stuff on my desktop.

Got a new lappy via Black Friday...the background is one of the Win7 default included ones, it'll be replaced soon though. Also, thanks to Zeroignite for the Rainmeter theme, currently using it on all of my machines.

There. It's a gui for people who feel uncomfortable with the concept of guis. Loads instantly too, though I'm still surprised everytime as I expect the pause as gnome cranks up.

Made it myself. Got the background idea from a tutorial. I couldn't figure out how to do it the way They did it, so I did it the way I wanted to. I don't remember where the aircraft came from, but I had to do some heavy editing on the original to get it looking right. I have versions fit or other resolutions if anyone wants. I also have one with a '40s style font in the bottom right corner saying "Flying Fortress." PM me or something.

In the gospel according to trig there are 3 primary rules: sin θ = x/h , cos θ = y/h and tan θ = x/y. These rules are not open to interpretation and are to be treated as law.

Under the (wrong) assumption that everyone chooses a completely random picture for the background, and assuming both of you use the same resolution of 1920x1080, the odds of getting two background pictures which are exactly the same are 1 in 34,789,235,097,600.
