wmhdplop is yet another dockapp for WindowMaker, or any
windowmanager/desktop environment that handles dockapps
(KDE has a dockbar extension, and gnome swallows).
It monitors your hard-drives by sending visual stimuli to your
cortex each time your /dev/hdX writes or reads anything.
Try to launch openoffice and enjoy the wmhdplop show!
(loading these kitties in mozilla also works).
* useless animation reflecting disk I/O.
* another useless animation reflecting swap activity.
* annoying blinking leds.
* a textual information of your harddrive throughput.
* display of disk temperature if hddtemp service is running.
Disclaimer: wmhdplop will not enlarge your hard-drive. Indeed it
will not enlarge anything. Please stop sending emails about
enlargement, I don't want to be enlarged.
