After the video card in my desktop computer fried last week for some reasons unknown to me, I moved to use my laptop as the basis of my daily work environment for a few days. And now that my desktop is back in service, I’m thinking to move to a laptop-only mode. But this move is pending some hardware complements (e.g. a port replicator), and I decided that I should start using my laptop system right now rather than later; I’d rather not plug all my existing devices in the laptop since I would have to unplug them too frequently, so I’ve decided to transform at least temporarily my desktop in a simple X Terminal.

Working with people around the world, I often ask myself what time is it where X is? How long Y will be available? Until when Z will be pestering me? Although there are plenty of web sites that give you that information (I particularly like the worldclock from time and date.com), this kind of information is something I want directly available on my desktop, especially when I’m using IRC – our primary mode of instant communication in W3C.

One of these terrible “un-break me” configuration options, where the user is left to wonder why this was broken in the first place…
