Duke Nukem on your systray: DukeTrayem

January 29, 2011

I’ve been working a lot on StressItOut, the hardware stress and test program since the last blog entry, but, since I’m still learning, I wanted another project to work on.

Since I couldn’t (yet) find any valid idea (something relatively simple, but useful, that someone could be needing and not have on GNU/Linux), I went with one of my not-useful ideas: Duke Nukem for your system tray.

DukeTrayem 0.1

Why Duke Nukem? He was known for his bad language and interesting quotes spoken during the course of the games. This program adds a Duke Nukem icon to the system tray, and will speak those quotes, in a popup, at random times.

The user will be able to add custom sentences, so it could be used as some sort of nagging reminder (“get to work!” or “study!!”). This is not yet done.
In the future I might add other characters, with their quotes (Chuck Norris facts, anyone? ;))

You can get this useful piece of… uh… software, here: http://gitorious.org/duketrayem
