Awesome Conky config

With Ubuntu 11.04 and Unity, it’s no longer possible (for now) to use panel indicators for system monitoring. Things like SystemMonitor for example, which were extremely useful, can no longer be placed in the panel.

So, I’ve switched to Conky, which I must say, absolutely rocks!

This is what is looks like on my desktop, with the config too!
