    Darn!! I want to compete with mack_guy but my wife will have none of it :p

    Anyway, I'll have to settle on some Brit bubbles instead on Mint Julia...

    aigle,I suppose you refer to the weather stuff ?
    If so you can get all the information from http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1156383 including the weather_script.sh and conkyweather.otf package.
    accuweather is used in the script - I prefer this as no registration is required as with weather.com. Also some towns/cities not covered by weather.com may be covered by
    accuweather.
    Anyway the link (down right now for maintenance), has full instructions.
    The script used in the sshots is the following - see the stuff below TEXT.

    Code:
    # Use Xft?
    use_xft yes
    xftfont DejaVu Sans:size=9
    xftalpha 0.8
    text_buffer_size 2048
    
    # Update interval in seconds
    update_interval 2
    
    # This is the number of times Conky will update before quitting.
    # Set to zero to run forever.
    total_run_times 0
    
    # Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
    own_window yes
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_type override
    #own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    
    # Use double buffering (reduces flicker, may not work for everyone)
    double_buffer yes
    
    # Minimum size of text area
    minimum_size 150 0
    #maximum_width 260
    
    # Draw shades?
    draw_shades no
    
    # Draw outlines?
    draw_outline no
    
    # Draw borders around text
    draw_borders no
    
    # Stippled borders?
    stippled_borders 0
    
    # border margins
    #border_margin 5
    
    # border width
    border_width 16
    
    # Default colors and also border colors
    default_color azure
    #default_shade_color black
    #default_outline_color white
    own_window_colour white
    
    # Text alignment, other possible values are commented
    #alignment top_left
    alignment top_right
    #alignment bottom_left
    #alignment bottom_right
    
    # Gap between borders of screen and text
    # same thing as passing -x at command line
    gap_x 20
    gap_y 120
    
    # Subtract file system buffers from used memory?
    no_buffers yes
    
    # set to yes if you want all text to be in uppercase
    uppercase no
    
    # number of cpu samples to average
    # set to 1 to disable averaging
    cpu_avg_samples 1
    
    # number of net samples to average
    # set to 1 to disable averaging
    net_avg_samples 2
    
    # Force UTF8? note that UTF8 support required XFT
    override_utf8_locale yes
    
    # Add spaces to keep things from moving about?  This only affects certain objects.
    use_spacer none

    Edit:- In the post, where teo mentions 'do a find and replace' (to replace teo username in the weather script with yours), you can do it from the search menu in gedit - select 'Replace'....
    I didn't know this and was thus introduced to the 'sed' command.:D
