You should now be in the appropriate frame of mind to read
Times change, of course. XClock now takes 4.7MB instead of the quoted 656k.
But that's OK. I don't run xclock. Instead I run
/usr/lib/gnome-panel/clock-applet --oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet_Factory --oaf-ior-fd=36
which takes up a measly 14.7MB.
$ ldd `which xclock` |wc
18 72 973
$ ldd /usr/lib/gnome-panel/clock-applet |wc
55 220 3277
Thank you GNOME for making the X-windows disaster seem like small potatoes!
"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
