Parsing RSS Looking through these posts I have seen a lot of people come up with some pretty clever hacks to parse RSS using sed, awk, grep, egrep, cut, etc etc etc. I have written a quick little PHP that will cleanly parse valid RSS (using XML methods that were built to do this!). You can check out the code to the script and download it from my website here An example of this script in use can be seen a couple posts above where I show screenshots of my desktop.

Geektool Your Geektool scripts. I can try to get the various links for your geektool image and post them. I'm getting really frustrated with the weather scripts.

Geektool Scripts Weather Image

Both the news section and the twitter section are using this parser. To use this script simply call it like this. Click to expand.I tried Syracuse NY, Utica NY, and Rome NY.then I tried Albany NY same story. The links under the default map 'full-feature map' and 'weather in motion' actually turn into a 'hand' pointer and get underlined when I hover over them, and they go to the proper item when clicked. When hovering over the 'classic map' link gets underlined but the pointer stays an 'arrow' - so it's like the link is still in the page code, but doesn't resolve to anything I guess.

For the hell of it, I just tried Boston MA and it does the same thing. I started using some of the scripts the OP originally posted in the start of this thread, date, time, day, month, iTunes and tried to get the weather. All was working except for the weather and I noticed that the Geektool and window server were using well over 1GB of RAM. I MRoogled it but couldn't find much in the way of answers. Macpaw Clean My Mac Serial on this page.

One person had said theirs was in the few MB range and that was about it. I uninstalled the scripts and Geektool because of that.

But I'd like to run them again and without it being such a RAM hog. Can anyone help me with that?

I've tried several of them that I found in this thread, but almost none of them work for me.

I've tried the ones using Lynx and the others using Yahoo! I was able to get one working but it was in Celsius and I couldn't figure out how to make it Fahrenheit. Not only that, it disturbs me that the Geektool is currently using 716MB of RAM and the WindowServer is at 1.27GB RAM usage and growing. The only scripts I have going are the Day, Date, Month, Time, Uptime and RAM free, plus a couple of unsuccessful weather ones. Will someone please assist me in finding what I am doing wrong?

Click to expand.Cool, thank you! Yes I am using GeekTool 3. The code you gave works for the conditions and temperature in Fahrenheit but the forecast code isn't showing anything in C or F.

Click to expand.Thanks, these two scripts work nicely. How can I get the RAM script to display in GB rather than MB, say like 'RAM Free 11.43GB?' I still don't know what to do about the excessive RAM usage. I changed all of them to refresh at different times from each other and the only one that is refreshing every second is the time with seconds script. I looked at the forum on the GeekTool website and a couple of people had similar complaints about the RAM and CPU usage too.

But I saw no resolutions on the site. Additionally, I do not have any CPU usage issues, just RAM. From the GeekTool forum. Alright, I'm starting to get the hang of this! Copy & paste are my friends here! I think I figured out how to mitigate the RAM usage. Once I get all the scripts running, I un-tick the enable box to shut them all down which clears it all from RAM and then I tick it again.

Once I do that, the RAM usage stays to a more reasonable minimum. I've slowly been going through this thread page by page looking for interesting scripts to use and see how others have their desktops setup. I attached mine so far. Scripts: Day Date Month Time iCal w/iCal Buddy Uptime RAM Free Weather conditions Weather forecast iTunes now playing I thought I saw someone who had a script for a MacRumors display. Does anyone have that one?
