Icecream died

On December 25th the icecream scheduler died (as we found out today). This is the last log message:
19:43:07: put 281278480 in joblist of tangelo

So the scheduler worked fine for over 281 Million compile jobs (roughly 5400 KDE compilations from scratch) and then died - without any hint on what he died on. I guess Dirk is right, the winter in germany is just too hot for icecream.

Horrible News!!

Let me introduce: I reviewed the wishlists of kpat after fixing all bugs reported to bugs.kde.org. Now 112032 - showing if a solution is possible found my interest. Not exactly for freecell (which I master quite well after all these years kpat QA), but it's surely interesting for games less likely to win.

And the oscar goes to... kpat

The kdegames survey has shown it: People love kpat. It's the only game that reached an overall score of 4 (with 46% saying it's game play is very good relative to the rest of kdegames)!

The "you have clothes too?" pick up line

I've seen it before, but yesterday the thought stroke me: What use does the condom box outside of the laundromat next to the Hauptmarkt have?

I have my theory (and the single student in the laundromat in my neighbourhood that looked as if she was bored and open for a chat kind of proved it), but I ask myself: is it really justifying such an open box? After all you might appear pretty needy if you go outside and buy a couple :)

The Perfect Platform

I like how the dot article stresses Kubuntu as the perfect platform for KDE4 development.
While I can't say much about it (only knowing that David spreads his "install that list of
packages to make kubuntu useful" txt file to everyone complaining about broken compilations while
SUSE had a "KDE Development" selection since about forever) I'm relieved that the dot article
did not touch openSUSE's position as the perfect platform to use KDE.

I got my password back...

Top sign you worked too much on kdm

I was in the talk of keithp and he referenced had on his slides "X -- ossified" and I was just thinking "no! you don't want that". After that I figured he didn't mean Oswald but open source.

I'm still alone

No-one wants to join my KDE clan in the age3 community. That's pretty strange :)

Kickoff kicked well

My talk was taken pretty well, many many thanks to my team and the guys that we could test.

Stopped escalators

Why is it so complicated to walk on stopped escalators? Is it because it feels like walking back in time? Or are the riffle telling the feed not to move? Or is just because you're loosing your rythm? I don't know - fact is: most people I watch avoid stopped escalators if there is a normal staircase next to it.

Deprecated functions

From time to time I do a fresh trunk compile to entertain myself on the logs (as I have no time to do real development at the moment).

So this is the top list of warnings about deprecated functions:

That's all I wanted to say! The details are on coverity.com - many thanks to those helped.

What you miss if you don't watch F1

The Formula One is more exciting than any since Hill retired. But to top this, RTL decided to field test new commercials during the "break" 10 gaps to go. In case you missed it, you should look at this - especially if you're male :)
