OK I think I have it working correctly, I reinstalled conky through Synaptic, copied JOHNNYG's script into the .conkyrc file and set it to start on boot.
It sits below the apps, ubt it has a titlebar, so I am not sure if I want to try to fix that yet

My conky script runs conky like an open app, you can move it max and minimize, If you run Thee's conky builder.sh It will tailor your conky to your rig and and place the regular type set up to your desk top, Also google conky scripts and you will find many different types you can play with ! Ubuntu forum has a very long tread with all kinds of scripts !

My conky has been real slow to start up and when it does show up it just freezes. Have you or anyone else had that problem? Or know what it might be?

Try this from terminal=>
killall conky
conky
And see what happens.

This could be a compiz-related issue: sometimes adding a simple script to delay the startup of conky will rectify this:
1) Create a file name .conky_start.sh in your Home Folder using a text editor (Show Hidden Files)
2) Paste this:
#!/bin/bash
sleep 20 && conky;

3) Then under System=>Preferences=>Startup Applications, Add a Startup Program that points to the command for the recently created script file.

Also, I have had issues with |whatismyip.org| timing out and hanging it {did NOT realize this was the culprit until I ran conky from terminal, no error would display when just using a typical run command [Alt+F2]}
Solution:
a)Open your .conkyrc file with a text editor, AND
b)Replace |whatismyip.org| with http://www.whatismyip.com/automation/n09230945.asp

Hope this information is helpful. Cheers.
