Or for $9.94 you can get a paper edition. - I've put this on my wish list... I'd like to get it. :)

Single on/off switch for conky - Ubuntu Forums

And oldie but goody from the Ubuntu Forums. While I was looking for a command line switch to turn conly on or off, I found this:
[save the file in your home folder, and name it something like Conky-on-off.sh]

Single on/off switch for conky - Ubuntu Forums:
"Single on/off switch for conky Here's a simple script to turn conky on and off. Just copy the script to a empty text file and make it executable(properties>permissions)->


# click to start, click to stop

if pidof conky | grep [0-9] > /dev/null
exec killall conky
exec conky


Then just create a single launcher for it(right click panel/desk) and point it to what ever you named your file, add a icon and your all set. I use mine so i can change my .conkyrc to try things and skip using the terminal to kill conky and start conky, clicking on the icon is way faster.

This is a simple site, that will take an OPML file and convert it into an HTML file. Great if you want to create a list of links real quick from your OPML reader. And, I suppose one could do this, and edit out the links that they don't want, or split them up into more categories. - Something that I need / want to do to make up a quick page of what podcasts I listen to, etc. - Yea, I'm posting this here also to remind myself that It's on my "to do" list... :P - Oh - AND I think you can save the HTML page so that can use it on a local machine or on your own Blog or... whatever.

- It might also make a quick and dirty HPR episode? ? Hmm..
