Techno looking bar locks to bottom of screen; low on resource - no CPU hogging perl or python scripts - just simple - with a menu and some applications close at hand; for 800, 1024 and 1600 - easily hacked to suit your screen size. Thanks to "Bluecurve" artist "andy" for the idea in the first place. Cool bars for CPU, MEM and primary disk (can add more), originally done for 6 desktops, but edited for four - you can change that very easily as well.
Just let me know if there are any problems with it and I'll do my best. I ain't a programmer by far - just a hack.
