Hi! This is not a question but a report about a new discovery.
Back in 2010, when I discovered FVWM as a useful window manager, I needed a digital clock, which simply shows date, time and weekday. I searched and filtered quite long and found xclock. This week, nearly 5 years later, I discovered conky, a system monitor. What do I need a system monitor for, when I mainly work in VirtualBoxes or Xen based VNC sessions, I thought, and put it aside. Today, I again thought about for what a conky could be useful. Then I noticed a lousy configured xclock with a way too large lettering on a 24 inches 16:10 display, which was initially designed for a 19 inches 5:4 display and then it dawned on me: I DISCOVERED A NEW CLOCK FOR MY WINDOW MANAGER!!! In the next weeks, when I continue setting up new Debian based productive systems, I will try to replace this combersomly configurable xclock by conky. Why do I post this via the FVWM list? Simply, because: - I needed 5 years to discover that conky could be used as a system clock (nobody told me that before) - If you are searching for a clock, it is not obvious to have a system monitor in mind So, if somebody asks you for a digital system clock, then don't forget to mention 'conky' to save him/her five years of struggling with xclock ;-) - Michael -
