anybody for rich text?

Friday, 21 May 2004
I added support for receiving bold, italic, and underline text in yahoo today. It was pretty easy. The next step is to now implement the sending of it, which will probably be a tad harder, especially considering how brain-dead some clients tend to be when handling rich text. Read More

running more than one distro on the same machine

Thursday, 20 May 2004
I've been thinking for quite some time on how to install multiple distributions onto a single hard disk. At the moment, my sole reason for doing this would be to troubleshoot bugs on the various distributions since some of them seem to be distribution specific, and I'm sure I'll find other uses later.

so i guess i should write something

Wednesday, 19 May 2004
It was about a year ago that I got my CVS account after posting a patch to the kopete-devel fixing some issue in the Yahoo plugin. I don't even remember what it was. Read More

it keeps sucking me back in!!!!

Friday, 23 April 2004
hmmm, ok, so much for not working on kopete for awhile. I was going to try to take a break, but I can't! It's like freaking quicksand, I keep getting sucked back in, so I fixed a few bugs, and now I'm better. Read More

reporting that there's really not much to report

Thursday, 22 April 2004
hmmm, not much to report really (watch, I'll end up writing a huge blog ;-) ). I've lost interest in hacking on anything network related at the moment, so I haven't been working on Kopete much lately, although I did start rewriting some OSCAR code to remove the old Kit api that's been polluting it and generally causing bugs with the contact list handling.

Where did all these projects come from?

Monday, 12 April 2004
I just looked at the mound of stuff I have in my local CVS tree, in addition to the bits and pieces that I have scattered around the KDE CVS tree and I started thinking, "Where did all these projects come from? Read More

i had a nice break

Wednesday, 31 March 2004
I took a semi-break over the last couple of weeks and went hardcore back into coding on Sunday. Cleaned up Kopete's filetransfer API a bit (ok, removed one whole function), fixed a Gadu bug, and then added mail notifications to Yahoo. Read More

Working on more than one thing at a time

Friday, 20 February 2004
Recently, I've decided to find something else in the KDE project that interests me, familiarize myself with its inner workings, and start hacking on it. I've come up with a couple of things, mostly KIO, and KOffice (KWord, KSpread, and Kexi to be exact). Read More

Ripping out parts of oscar

Friday, 23 January 2004
so, yup, i started ripping out parts of kopete's oscar plugin last night. The first thing to go was the old Kit API and so the AIMBuddy and AIMGroup classes are gone. Read More

ChangeLogs shall plague me no more

Monday, 19 January 2004
I've started working on a (currently small) app that will parse the ChangeLog files created by cvs2cl and display them in a KListView and allow me to edit them and produce a new ChangeLog file from that. Read More

posting a blog when you don't know what to post about.

Thursday, 8 January 2004
So, yup, this is my blog entry, and I have no idea what to write about. Maybe it's because I'm not doing anything, or maybe it's because I'm doing too much, or. Read More

The TODO list that has snuck up on me

Thursday, 23 October 2003
It's snuck up on me. It's been growing item by item until it can go unnoticed no longer. Yup, my TODO list has become so long, I can no longer ignore it. Read More

A walk down memory lane

Tuesday, 7 October 2003
Ok, now that i've thought of a snappy title for my blog to get people to read it, I'll actually write something here I've had an interesting weekend. I was supposed to release Kopete 0. Read More

yahoo works again

Wednesday, 1 October 2003
Well, I got the kopete yahoo plugin to work again. Yahoo decided to change their authentication methods and so that left all of us in the dark. From the looks of it, I tihink they're using an SHA style hash now, but I'm not all that sure since I don't know enough about the protocol internals as I should. Read More

I'm number 2! (and in this case, it's not a bad thing)

Friday, 26 September 2003
Wow, it's amazing what a little venting can do for your motivation!. I ranted about how certain people were pissing me off and that I just didn't have motivation to work on Kopete a whole lot anymore. Read More

An endless cycle - the highs and lows of OSS development

Wednesday, 24 September 2003
Here's the mandanatory blurb about having not posted a blog in awhile: "I haven't posted anything here in awhile, sorry bout that" And now on to the bulk of the content. Read More

How much I don't know about the KDE framework

Thursday, 4 September 2003
I've been porting the Kopete config dialogs for the plugins for the last couple of days. Man, I knew that I knew very little of what the KDE framework offers, but I had no clue. Read More

Kopete's Oscar protocol goes KExtendedSocket, Matt tries Unsermake, and more!

Thursday, 28 August 2003
I've been converting Kopete's Oscar protocol to KExtendedSocket over the past week or two. Needless to say, it hasn't been without it's headaches, but I have finally conquered it!!! The testing that I've done so far seems to indicate that it still works the way it did before the conversion, although now I can't test it to make sure an issue I had with disconnecting is gone because of the KUtils stuff. Read More

long time no blog

Tuesday, 26 August 2003
it's been awhile since I've written one of these. Mostly because I've been working on porting Kopete's oscar protocol to KExtendedSocket. It's used QSocket which is very limited in certain things. Read More

Kopete 0.7.1

Monday, 11 August 2003
I just pushed Kopete 0.7.1 out the door. YAY! :) This was definately not the way I had scheduled it, thanks to bug:62210. Kopete 0.7.0 would not have gone out if I had known about that bug. Read More

No More Classes!

Friday, 8 August 2003
YAY! One last exam (at 6pm today) and then I'm done with stupid summer classes!! After that exam, the weekend starts, along with my two week break from school before fall classes start. Read More

No More Classes! (or AKA how to post two of the same blog)

Friday, 8 August 2003
ok, yup, i'm a dumbass, i posted two of the same blog, but i'm going back and editing this one so :P Well, today has turned out to be a weird day so far. Read More

A little bit more to see

Wednesday, 6 August 2003
There's a little bit more to see here now. I wanna write a blog, but I just don't have motivation at the moment since i have an exam in about 3 hours (must study! Read More

Kopete 0.7 and a Yahoo bug

Wednesday, 30 July 2003
How annoying. I fixed the yahoo bad account data log in bug that Bille (Will Stephenson) pointed out to me, but I can't commit for 0.7 because it has string changes. Read More

The translators are going to hate me

Sunday, 27 July 2003
I'm trying to get kopete's .pot file updated since it's three days old. I was under the impression that they were generated automagically by one of the kde servers, but I was wrong. Read More

7/24/03 - Eureka!

Friday, 25 July 2003
Well, I still have no time to hack on KDE, (well, Kopete to be more specific) but that's ok since I just made a nice breakthrough with my algorithms project that's due on Monday night (6pm). Read More

7/22/2003 - I need more time

Tuesday, 22 July 2003
Why is it that university professors always pile crap loads of work on at the end of the term? sigh So yeah, I got lots of homework and projects, and no time to hack. Read More
