Ho … ho. I found out finally how to pronounce linux. And guess what I have been doing it right, right from the first time I heard that word . Found this audio clip in wikimedia commons.
And if things still don’t work here’s the link for downloading :
Linux by Linus
That was how I actually started. The problem arised when I wanted to embed a player in my page, instead of just a link. And surprise,surprise Ogg is not supported that easily. I looked into several 3rd party players, though they support Ogg the dynamic WP engine doesn’t seem to support them. WP simply supports, using a audio player plugin, based on flash any mp3 can be played.
When we first heard that we there was going to be a contraption competition going to be held in our college I was pleasantly surprised . Me and my friend had already tried our hand at Contraption before but failed miserably. Now this time we started again with three other trusty companions.
A contraption is essentially a series of processes that take place sequentially like a ball rolling and knocking a series of dominoes which then switches on a switch. While we din’t have the bountiful resources of those of the Honda accord one or that rather annoying ta-da-di-pa-ti-da-pi , we embarked on a quest in creating something way more simpler, and cheaper. Here I will tend to list the steps and the processes we used mainly to help anyone make a contraption.
Conky is a linux system monitoring tool. That is it gives out varioud information and data about what your system is running right now.
But users all over the world love Conky because of its configuration support. With over 200 in-built variables, conky displays information in any way you want and anywhere you want.
However, many linux newbies right now are hesitating to use conky to the script work needed which though very simple appears daunting when looked at as a whole. To help those people here is my simple conky script …
This is my conky configuration file to display various informations which I prefer. Using this as a base, you can develop conky to suit your desktop too.
