            %Uhm, it states right in the

            %description that Conky is a fork of torsmo.

            %Torsmo has been dead for a while. Get over

            %it.

            I consider torsmo dead since the start when I first found it.

            I still haven't gotten a reply for my feature request I send.

            And as long as credit is given where credit is due I see

            nothing wrong.

            %BTW the

            %only place you give torsmo credit is on

            %the sourceforge page, for 1 little line.

            %Yet you use/d all the docs, and stuff

            %for torsmo, even thier Changelog. it

            %looks like you just added a few lines

            %here and there to all there code, dont

            %you think the authors of torsmo deserve

            %alittle more credit?

            If they do then it's not your place to claim that.

            If you belive they are being inappropriately credited

            then inform them of this project and let them get in touch

            with the author(yes author even if it is a rip off as you claim)

            of conky. The only person in error here is you. You are attacking

            a person for using GPL code whic is still released under GPL

            about a rip off. So please stop throwing your dead weight around.

            I do not defen the the author of conky but I do know you are wrong

            in thinking that you know if it's a rip off or not. The only people that

            can make such a claim are the Torsmo developers so contact them

            and ask if they belive this is a rip off. Let them examine the source

            and if it goes against the GPL or what they belive is enough credit.

            And don't waste more time by trolling about such things.

            BTW I use neither Torsmo nor Conky. I prefer gkrellm until I find a good samurize clone for linux.

            i didnt relise 2+ months between release made a project "dead" if you are refering to the torsmo cvs, then you are still wrong, because the dates on the files there didnt change when 0.18 was released. Maybe the author isnt using the CVS as much as he should. BTW the only place you give torsmo credit is on the sourceforge page, for 1 little line. Yet you use/d all the docs, and stuff for torsmo, even thier Changelog. it looks like you just added a few lines here and there to all there code, dont you think the authors of torsmo deserve alittle more credit? i mean without them you wouldnt have conky.

            learn to use replace, in your editor
            Since you are not going to give credit where it is due, why not learn to use an editor properly, and learn the replace string/command? :%s/[Tt]orsmo/conky/g for vi, and its clones for example.

            Below is the authors rc file for example.

            # set to yes if you want tormo to be forked in the background

            background no
