What the heck, right?

This is what I see when I slide four fingers up my Magic Trackpad (or hit F11). 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.

Here are a few other screenshots from 2009 - present.

As a side note, I just learned how to use ImageMagick’s convert command to take shell output and do crazy things with it. This means trouble.
