The IP displayed in conky is my internal or Lan based IP, I do not care if the world knows that IP
I have began writing conky to not only retrieve your IP, but your GEO location to pull your local weather:
# 1.11 Fixed improper cpu detection on some Intel based processors.
# Began writing weather location / detection via users IP address."
# the above will be a faily difficult procedure... A querry to a API driven
# Geo-positioning map to obtain location based on zip code, once obtained
# a querry to another API driven site noaa.gov. Will require no user
# 1.12 Added support for 12.04 precise (Ultimate Edition 3.4 & 3.5) based releases.
I love automation, did you know I am running what will be Ultimate Edition 3.5 (12.04 based, with KDE- we don't even have artwork for yet), crazy right? Currently building 3.3. Do not think I have forgot about 3.01 x64.
There is a method to my madness, please ride with me.
I am going to share with you what most people do not see me do, I wrote a tool even longer ago then I even concieved the conky builder. Which I feel is an alright tool. I created a tool called repomaster, this tool created 90% of the software you see in the 2 screenshots above & done so flawlessly. I have said this probably a 1000 times it is a revolutionary tool, I am happy to say I 100% wrote. I do not like re-creating the wheel & tend to think outside of the box.
If it was up to me which I guess in someways it is, I would quit distro-writing and shift 100% of my attention to programming. We have a large following, numbers tell me so. I am doing my best to provide functionality in both directions. Distro-writing is my absolute #1 priority as much as I dislike doing so. I tried to fill my shoes in the distro writing dept. & failed myserably. The fog sometimes rolls in, the end users complain where is my FILL BLANK HERE. I am one man. I do the best I can. I hope that is good enough. Sorry blowing off a little steam, no pun intended
Before you write me off, this grabs me I do it for free and with only one reason. To make the end user happy. I should not say free, I have paid out of my pocket for years to ensure such.
I got a new Job today, I am thinking hosting costs will never be an issue again. How much I can do for Ultimate Edition is however a different issue. 12 hrs a day 7 days a week, does not leave much time for Ultimate Edition. I could not tell you how many times I have been asked to sell 11 servers & never work again. Let me once again shake up the entire situation. I am here for the end users. I am here for the long hull.
