Yesterday I created a new Conky script for my laptop I use for everyday work, running Ubuntu 12.10 with Mate. The image at the left shows how it looks like.

The weather script is based on Yahoo weather API, which is totally free. The script I use is based on the Google Now-Inspired Conky Theme found at OMGUbuntu website. The script retrieves the Weather information and shows them at the Conky. Although I like the default theme weather icons of the above theme, I wanted to make it look like StormCloud.

Today I had to create a script to create a large amount of unique passwords for a project. To be more specific, we needed more than 200000 passwords. So, I created a nice php script that does the job. These passwords were created in about 33mins on my desktop computer. Do you think it is slow? It would be great if you could provide any faster solution?

The editors are my most used programs daily. As a web developer, I use plain text editors for coding. For the last couple of years I prefer to use the jEdit, which is Java based, really fast, with plenty of plugins to make it suitable for you. I use it everyday because it has all the feautures I need from an editor. It also has "macros", which I never used before, until yesterday.
