Note to self - vim :g

While eagerly awaiting KDevelop4 to become stable (it crashes on me too often right now)...
I'm back to forgetting vim commands ;)

To get a list of files on the left (still need to get comfy with it, but it looks useful) use the Project plugin

Substitute (replace stuff - I've used this so often that I remember, but maybe you don't yet?)
:%s/what/with/g
(with % on the entire file, without only current line)
(g all occurrences in the line, without only the first hit)

Systems 2008

Today the Systems Fair in Munich ended. I only spent yesterday and today there helping at the KDE booth. Eckhart and Holger spent all week there and I am deeply impressed that they still were in very good spirits and were lots of fun to manage the booth with :)

FrOSCon

Back from FrOSCon.
I followed the frog grasshopper.
It was great to meet so many nice people again :)
The KDE table (booth just doesn't fit) was shared with Kubuntu and Amarok. I think we all fitted together nicely, not really appearing as three projects that much. Thanks to the Kubuntu people for helping a lot in keeping the table/booth running!
The blue table cloth we had (kudos Kubuntu) gave us extra appeal. And if it hadn't had a little too much beer in the evening that would have included Sunday...

No time, so I'll just dump some random notes here.

FrOSCon is coming up tomorrow-like... need to get ready, who stole all my time?

Still some notes from Akademy. It was my first (therefor best) Akademy! I can only say it was great meeting so many nice people. Others have blogged about that quite a bit already, so I will save me the effort ;)

Things that have not been said yet? Sébastien Renard gave a great overview about the French translation team and the use of python scripts to make their lives easier. I hope more teamwork across translator teams will happen. Too bad not many people attended.

Scripting Parley

Akademy is coming closer and I still haven't managed to blog about current stuff happening in Parley.
Instead I was wasting my time outside, climbing, and lately again (last weekend at least) some coding.
Lately I leaned back and enjoyed other people working on parley *a lot*.
Our two summer of code projects are becoming ready for broader testing and have been merged into trunk. New faces show up improving Parley, Javier Goday got started with two patches to improve the ui :)

I'm going to.....

I took a sneak peek at Kdevelop. I did so before, but after waiting a month or two and reading Andreas' announcement I was curious to see the progress.

good advice day today

Here's another tip for those not yet on subversion 1.5 (which supposedly comes with the goodness below integrated).
svnmerge.py makes merging branches back and forth a little less painful. Most distributions have a package for it, it can be in svn-utils or something like that and sometimes it's simply called svnmerge without the py. Whatever.
Say we have this great new project in KDE/kdeedu/foo and now we decided to branch it because the soc-foo project will be worked on during feature freeze...

Model/View

I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.

yay

Yay, Daniel gave Parley's html export via xsl an overhaul to make it look way better.
Two bugs fixed :) one of them would prevent counting answers as wrong in the tests...
Pretty nice bug I'd say. Personally I'd have kept it for good.
