==========================================================================
PyGadgets user-configurations file

Set variables available in this Python-code file to customize the 
appearance of both PyGadgets itself and any of the gadgets it launches.
Settings here override any defaults used by the individual gadgets.

For COLORS:
    Use either a color name (e.g., 'skyblue') or a RGB color hexstring 
    '#RRGGBB' (e.g., '#74c3e8').  Run the included pickcolor.py script's 
    simple GUI to select a color's RGB string for use in this file.

For FONTS:
    Use a 3-item tuple of the form (family, size, style), where family
    is the font-family name string (e.g., 'courier new'), size is the 
    size of the font (e.g., 14), and style is an optional string of 
    space-separated options (e.g., 'bold italic').  Using None instead
    of the tuple means the system default font is used.

    Technically, a font's style part is a space-separated list that may
    include 'normal' or 'bold', and 'italic' or 'roman', and an omitted 
    style defaults to 'normal'.  Size may be positive for points, negative
    for pixels, or 0 for a default size, and omitting size is the same as
    0 (the default).  Font may also be a string 'family size style...' 
    if the family name has no spaces, but tuples are generally simpler.

For SIZES:
    Use either None for default size, or string 'NxM' where N and M are
    numbers that give width and height, respectively (e.g., '280x300').

For PATHNAMES:
    File and folder pathnames can use "/" for directory separators on all 
    platforms (including Windows), and may be relative to "." or absolute.

Caution: an error in the code here will likely prevent PyGadgets from
launching.  Save a backup copy, and check your syntax with a Python 
interactive-prompt import or other techniques.  Each gadget's config
set is a class to make names unique; mind their nested indentation.

    #
    # MAC OS USERS: use a GIF or JPEG image, not PNG.  Due to a bug in the

    # Macs can leak memory so badly as to kill the computer by the end of 
    # the day if the analog display is left open (oddly, the leak is much 
    # more rapid on Sierra than El Capitan).  Because of this, PyPhoto
    # will remind you if you try to use a PNG image, and substitute a GIF.

    # ALSO ON MAC OS: despite the PNG fix, PyClock's memory usage may still
    # grow modestly over time.  To avoid memory growth, minimize PyClock 
    # to the Dock when it's not in use.  See README.txt for more details.
