  Description     : very cool fiery way of showing your CPU usage

A Window Maker (or similar) dockapp which shows your current CPU usage as
a roaring fire.

It can monitor the average cpu load, or individual cpu load on SMP computers.
Additionally it can monitor the memory, network load, a file or just be set to
show a pretty flame. On entering the dock a burning spot replaces the cursor,
and after two seconds symbols to represent the current monitor are "burnt"
onscreen. The flame colour can also be changed.
It uses the GDK library to improve its speed - using less than half the cpu of
the original program.

wmfire 1.2.3 is still in oldstable, but was removed from Debian in 2011 [1].
Upstream released version 1.2.4 in 2010.
