wmsupermon is a universal monitoring dockapp. It can be used to monitor CPU usage, disk I/O, memory usage, swap, filesystems, space utilization, network traffic, wireless link quality, CPU frequency, CPU temperature, fan speed, voltages (without requiring lm_sensors), battery status (with actual, not "reported", discharge rate), traffic from your router, or anything else. It can open and maintain many dockapp windows with one dockapp process.
wmbday is a small dockapp that reminds you of birthdays. It can take an arbitrary number of birthdays, and will display the next four upcoming birthdays. By left-clicking a name, you can see the remaining days until the birthday. The colours of the background and the font can be customised.
