Basic Conky

Haven't met Conky yet? I hadn't either until a few minutes ago, and it's not as scary as you'd think. First, grab the latest version (1.9.0) from Vincent Cheng by adding his PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vincent-c/conky

Now, just take a look at some basic configurations (here's mine: http://pastebin.com/N4icFDKs) and bookmark the official reference, you'll use it often:
http://wiki.conky.cc/index.php?title=Category:Reference

You'll see that the config file, .conkyrc, is broken into two parts, settings and objects. Anything you type after TEXT will show up on your screen. Take a look at the variables in the Wiki to see what you can do, and start playing!

One of my co-workers hasn't been able to access a site for a loooong time, because it was designed for IE6/7. If you ever run into that problem, hit F12 to open the developer options and try loading it in compatibility mode! #ie6 #techsupport

Grabbing some SQL out of some of our old Server 2005 reports. Looks like it's all stored in the <CommandText> tags inside the RDL files.  #sqlserver

Time to apt-get dist-upgrade! I still can't recognize a thing in the changelog, except that I think they fixed the Samsung bricking issue, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-cdimage/+bug/1040557

How-to enable transparency for rxvt-unicode. If you're just running openbox, you'll probably need to download xcmpmgr and add it to your .config/openbox/autostart script.
