Thank you, Toby! Cool scripts!

What I did - instead of using one status bar script I made many small
ones - kind of modular approach: cpu, battery, memory, weather, volume
etc. Of course, in that case it's harder to manage their positions. And
my calendar script is very similar to yours but, shows a horizontal
calendar ;)

All of them are not polished though, but if somebody would like to see
them I'll share with pleasure.
