Hi, the font is Purisa, which should be available on dafont.com if it's not default in Ubuntu (I can't remember!)

The script to grab it is simply:

${execpi 120 curl --silent '[link] | sed '{:q;N;s/\n//g;t q}' | grep -o '<div class="entry">[^<]*' | sed 's/<div class=\"entry\">.//;s/ //g' | fold -sw 85}

Put that after TEXT in your Conky config file and you'll be away! The only thing to change is the "fold -sw 85" bit...Change the 85 to the number of characters you want to wrap the text by, or delete from "|" all the way to the end if you want it all on one line.

Hope this helps!
