  • Desktop Quotes Geeklet

    Well, here it is: my last Geeklet post of 2011. I think it's the simplest Geeklet I have, but it's kind of fun. It uses the I Quotes API to put a random quote on your desktop.

You can pull from multiple categories by separating them with a "+" in the url. There's even a simpsons_chalkboard category…

Currently only German is complete, but the strings file is easy enough to fill out.…

  • My Desktop, February 2011

NerdTool does all of the heavy lifting: top memory processes, top CPU processes, 5 min average load, date, fuzzy time (fuzzyclock), weather icon and the current weather text. If you're curious about how any of the scripts work, just ask. I might do a post on the process for the weather icon, that one's pretty nifty.…
