Description  
Mostly self-explanatory, but just in case ...

C -> G, and P are logical volumes.  90% full activates the red alert color.

M and N are optical drives.  (Actually, N is a virtual drive powered by DAEMON Tools.  Concept of an optical drive still applies.)  Pie meter needs to only register 1% usage to indicate media in the drive.

Left of Sam taskbar is Dave's Quick Search Toolbar.  Very nice! (http://www.dqsd.net/)

Might want to add:
-Indicate transfer numbers for network
-???

The progressbars will become a little clearer if I can create an animated GIF. The editor portion of the screenshot doesn't really do it justice.

I am using progress bars to measure disk activity in the "empty" pie corners. These progress bars fluctuate based on the amount of disk traffic on that particular partition. Any read traffic (MB/s) will cause the green progressbars (on the left of each pie) to grow from left to right and top to bottom. Any write traffic will cause red progress bars to grom from right to left and top to bottom.

Given that the area is very small, I have each pixel in these progress bars indicates 1MB/s of traffic. I happen to have 28 pixels in each side of the pie, so I can monitor up to 28MB/s of disk traffic.

So, when I see only one or two red/green pixels outside of a pie, I recognize it as usual system traffic. If the pie becomes fully engulfed by pixels outside of the pie, I can tell that there is a massive transfer underway.

yeah, figured out that. What I was really doing was teasing you about that typo over there

I'll try to put up an animated GIF to really illustrate this config in action!
