Bad News: As mentioned in a previous blog my notebook's harddrive did pass silently yesterday afternoon. This was my main KDE development system.
Good News: I decided to use this opportunity to purchase a new HP Pavilion desktop system. Yes, the new system will have lots more processing power and RAM, but I'm really excited about the 19" flat screen.
I'll eventually put a new harddrive in the notebook for other purposes. But for now, the tired old-soldier is patiently awaiting further instructions.
Bottom Line: No KDE development for a least a week.
