||Everything is quiet.. for now

||kswapd is waking up..(green = swapin, red = swapout)
||Maybe that 10000x10000 platypus picture was too big for the gimp

wmhdplop loves the gnome-swallow meta-applet -- config used for this example here

New ! wmhdplop : The Movie
is yet another dockapp
, or any
windowmanager/desktop environment that handles dockapps (KDE has a
dockbar extension, and gnome swallows

- display of the hd temperature if the hddtemp daemon is running.
If your consider trying wmhdplop, I highly encourage you to install the

, or the Vera
