One other modification I did was change the conky window type to 'desktop' instead of 'override'. Otherwise the conky window would draw itself over EVERYTHING whenever my cron jobs would run. It was actually comical to see it drawn over xscreensaver. - May 23 2012
First, thanks for your excellent work. Your conky theme is easy to tinker with an looks great.

I made a few modifications that some prospective users might find interesting.

Support for Quad-Core CPU:

(purple conkyrc):
${goto 0}${voffset 35}${color D60650}CPU1 ${color FFFFFF}${cpu cpu0}%${goto 100}${color D60650}CPU3 ${color FFFFFF}${cpu cpu2}%
${goto 0}${color D60650}CPU2 ${color FFFFFF}${cpu cpu1}%${goto 100}${color D60650}CPU4 ${color FFFFFF}${cpu cpu3}%

(lua script mod)
{
name='cpu',
arg='cpu0',
max=100,
bg_colour=0xffffff,
bg_alpha=0.2,
fg_colour=0xD60650,
fg_alpha=0.8,
x=50, y=300,
radius=20,
thickness=4,
start_angle=-90,
end_angle=180
},
{
name='cpu',
arg='cpu1',
max=100,
bg_colour=0xffffff,
bg_alpha=0.2,
fg_colour=0xD60650,
fg_alpha=0.8,
x=50, y=300,
radius=25,
thickness=4,
start_angle=-90,
end_angle=180
},
{
name='cpu',
arg='cpu2',
max=100,
bg_colour=0xffffff,
bg_alpha=0.2,
fg_colour=0xD60650,
fg_alpha=0.8,
x=150, y=300,
radius=20,
thickness=4,
start_angle=-90,
end_angle=180
},
{
name='cpu',
arg='cpu3',
max=100,
bg_colour=0xffffff,
bg_alpha=0.2,
fg_colour=0xD60650,
fg_alpha=0.8,
x=150, y=300,
radius=25,
thickness=4,
start_angle=-90,
end_angle=180
},

As you can see I just utilized the settings for the network speed rings to show all 4 cpus in less space.

I also did some tinkering with cron and conky so that every 15 minutes my desktop background and color scheme of conky changes to match.
