Atreius Docklets - Feedback

Recommended Posts

Has anyone actually successfully downloaded XBattery? I'm trying since I noticed it listed at the first post but no luck so far... no matter if I use FF, IE or Opera for that. Any hints?

Btw, it's hard to know when a docklet gets published/updated. Have you stopped updating the RSS feed you created for that? The one you announced at Update Tracker? Should I consider that thread dead?

Well, i stopped publishing on the Update-Tracker, since i was the only one publishing there and the automatic RSS-Feed on Skydrive does a similar job without additional work by me. Consider the Thread only as frozen, please, as soon as some other people start publishing there work there, i'm in again, too.

(I have to write a Feed-Entry on the Update-track to let everybody know this...)

OK, I'll keep that thread open for a while then. But yes, you should've alerted us about not updating it; things just got confused as they are now...

Btw, you could post a note at that thread too, if you don't think I'm asking too much.

hey atrieu,

I tested 4 XAnimation docklets all with the default animation and no app targeted, checked all options. The result was that the CPU usage went up to 50-60%, but memorywise stayed the same.

You can see in the attachment that the green line in the CPU performance chart went up slowly, that was when i was adding the docklets one by one, I configured them and then left them loop the animation. In the end i had 4 XAnimation docklets looping in my dock. After that i just draged out of the dock one by one, you can see in the chart that the graph went down too.

My specs:

-Vista OS Home Premium

-Intel Core2 Duo CPU T7250 @ 2,00 GHz

-3GB RAM

-NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS 128 MB

Was running foobar, firefox, pidgin and dexpot as usual (plus xwd of course ;) )

Thanks a lot, Churchpunk! You only forgot to mention one important thing: How was the animation looking? Smooth or slow?

haha i forgot the MOST important thing i think :P

They all were running smooth, maybe a little bit slower than normal, but i think it was more like a temporary pause (milliseconds, almost not noticeable) that made it look "slow" from time to time. maybe it was when the loop ended/started again?

Ah, cool! Thanks. That means, the animation totally depends on CPU. My CPU is bad (Celeron M), so CPU gets 95% and animation gets slow with more than 1 animations at the same time. With a CPU like yours, where the CPU doesn't peak to the top, 4 Animations are still ok. Let's hope native aPNG support will be more effective than my docklet :)

Hi everybody, I just want to tell you, that I leave this forum here, but I do not quit coding my Docklets for XWindowsDock.

I setup a Google Group for discussing XWindowsDock and especially my docklets:

http://groups.google.com/group/atreius-xwd-docklets

You can keep Track on the changes to my Docklets here and still download my Docklets from my Skydrive.

Greetings, Atreiu :)

PS: I will be available through PM here, too, but I do not respond in the forum anymore.
