Conky with Python

These days i was playing around with conky and python. So i created a module in python for file monitoring which i embedded in conky. You can find the source code and the installation instructions in the github link.

The list_of_files text file contains the absolute path of the files you want to monitor.

You should set as you wish the HOURS variable in scripts/hash_calc.py. This is the time interval (number of hours) after the last change that the module will notify you about the change in the file.

In order to monitor the specified files you should have read privileges. Also, take care of update_interval because frequent md5sum calculation may increase the load of your system.

(you can download them here: SS1, SS2)

Stick Soldiers has remained discontinued for the past years after the hiatus of the development team and the cancellation of the long-awaited sequel Stick Soldiers 3 by Andrew Russell Studios.

For a long time, I have aspired to revive the Stick Soldiers series by making a fan sequel to the game. Since school's start, I spent about a whole year working on a Game Maker / Ultimate3D project, aiming to evolve it to a complete and worthy sequel, which I called "Stick Soldiers: Encore". Second year of school …
