Of course, gdesklets already includes a hottieofthehour display (which has
never actually worked for me, along w/ half of the other broken gdesklets;
maybe it's just lacking hotties).  The only difference I can see is that
this comes w/ hotties (an artists rendition of one, anyways).

The program itself is simply a cpu monitor; you can swap out images in the
package and have it display pictures of guys, turtles, or the US dropping
napalm on your favorite third world country.
