Description:

I didn't have enough room for all the info I wanted to display in Conky, so I wrote a Python script to increment a number (or choose one randomly), write it to a file, then use ${if_existing filename number} tags to change what content is displayed (GMail, message of the day, various RSS feeds) in the bottom section of my Conky every 5 minutes.

Original .conkyrc, GPL, by TheRob http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Slickness+Black?content=73210
conkysuffix.py by me, GPL, suggestion by John Machin
gmail_parser.py by Baishampayan Ghose, GPL

This is my first real Python script and I would appreciate any suggestions for improvement.

UPDATE: forgot a couple scripts, added to archive.

Fixed a problem with flickering when certain RSS feeds reload. If you have already downloaded you can fix by changing minimum_size in .conkyrc from 206 800 to:

minimum_size 1000 1000

I like it.
Can you add a moon-clock, like the conky in content: 49127 ,?

Thanks nivada,

I think you better ask ottlux about that moon clock, because that's either a widget of some sort, or it's way beyond my skill level. I don't know of any way to make Conky display images.
