I'm going to Bilbao

I'm going to Bilbao... well not quite to the whole Akademy but mainly to the QtCS. Looking at my calendar I conclude even getting these two days is a success. I'll try to show up @ Akademy too and say hello to you friends and chat a bit.

Kubuntu Won't be Switching to Mir or XMir

A few months ago Canonical announced their new graphics system for Ubuntu, Mir. It's a shame the Linux desktop market hasn't taken off as we all hoped at the turn of the millennium and they feel the need to follow a more Apple or Android style of approach making an OS which works in isolation rather than as part of a community development method.

Is that really the source code for this software?

I've been looking into how easy it is to confirm that a binary package corresponds to a source package. It turns out that it is not easy at all. So I've written down my findings in this blog entry.

Compiling *all* of KDE SC from svn/git

On my desktop machine, I have always tried to compile "everything". At a time it was easy: about 18 SVN modules listed in kdesvn-buildrc, trunk for everything, done.
Nowadays there are many more git modules - I currently compile 234 modules, with the help of kdesrc-buildrc (I don't have to list all 234 modules, it expands them for me). Still it's a bit difficult to ensure I really have everything...

despite the crazy itinerary to get the most "almost" cheap tickets...

New Blue Systems Edinburgh Office at Tech Cube

After many years of working away from my bedroom desk I was invited to a party at the opening of a new hotdesking space. Tech Cube is an attempt to create an entrepreneurial office space in Edinburgh. As I heard it the old Royal Dick (no sniggering at the back) vet school got sold to a nice guy with deep pockets who is turning it into an arts complex but the ugly wee tower block stuck on the side was not very artistic so get turned into this little project.
