Very nice, Donn.  Here is what "aptitude show osdsh" returns:

Package: osdsh
State: not installed
Version: 0.7.0-8
Priority: optional
Section: universe/x11
Maintainer: Joachim Breitner <nomeata at debian.org>
Uncompressed Size: 201k
Depends: tk8.4 | wish, libapm1 (>= 3.2.0-7), libc6 (>= 2.3.4-1), libxosd2
(>= 2.2.13)
Description: Overlays your screen with various system information
 OSDsh is a a little program that overlays system information using the XOSD
library. OSDsh was
 originally based on osdd and provides features like:

 * It is able to display a clock.
 * Shows the volume levels of the soundcard when changing.
 * Tells you if you are on- or off-line, and the time you were connected.
 * Shows the battery status and
 * shows any message you want it to.

Sounds perfect for the OP
