Conky

I use conky to display some information about my machine. Every update cycle conky calls some Python scripts to include data like temp, wind and humidity from my weather station. The additional images of the current solar data from N0NBH are disabled but also possible, see last lines of configuration file.

Here is my .conkyrc file:
