Yes. There is a massive thread over at Ubuntu Forums dedicated to conky, and another one that addresses a particular user's script, which looks really nice, but requires some work.
I played with the scripting for that a little, but ran out of time and patience for it, and for me, a continually running script is not something I want using resources on my laptop.
Particularly since I do not always have a connection to the internet.
