DBUS on Windows

Since Christian Ehrlicher expressed his unhappiness with our (KDAB's) efforts in the area of DBUS on Windows in this blog post, I thought I'd clarify some things. The work that we announced in

Conclusive proof - Allen Winter actually exists!

Since I was in the US anyway, I thought I'd fly to North Carolina and verify something that has had the KDEPIM community wondering for years. Does Allen Winter, in fact, exist, and look like the picture, since no one has ever met him in person. Well, after a 2 hour plane ride from Chicago and another 2 hours in a car, I can attest that he does, in fact, exist, and is as nice in person as he is online. Photographic proof below. Your reporter will write more as events develop, now it's lunch time. :)

shiny!

When I got home, late last night, I was greeted by a parcel addressed to me that contained a book.

If you build it, they will come ...

I'm currently on my way back home to Berlin from a hit-and-run visit to the Osnabrück 7 KDEPIM meeting. It's just close enough for me to take a very early train in the morning and still be back home before midnight, which was the best I could do this year, due to other commitments. I'm really glad I did, as I'm leaving the others hacking and discussing with the kind of warm, joyous feeling of fulfillment one gets when a long and slow process seems to be coming together nicely and things align beautifully.

A-Tumblin'

Did some tumblin' a few days ago, as a result of me and some tram tracks at Hackescher Markt disagreeing as to the general direction of the front wheel of my bike. This resulted in a banged up wrist and rib, but no damage to the laptop or head. So while I'm still able to perform my primary function at work, namely talk, I am somewhat useless in my primary function at home, namely as a holder of hands while our daughter learns to walk.

We're going to Akademy :)

Like every year, so far, and as befits a patron of KDE, KDAB is covering the travel and lodging expenses of all KDABians who want to attend Akademy. Yeah, for Kalle :). A few of the KDE folks in KDAB have chosen to stay behind, this year, and keep the customers happy, but most of us will be there. The current list includes myself, David Faure, Kevin Ottens, Laurent Montel, Andras Mantia, Volker Krause, Pradeepto Bhattacharya, Thomas Moenicke, Thomas McGuire, Andreas Hartmetz and Marc Mutz.

Dear Lazyweb,

speaking of logos, and while I'm in 1:N communication mode and have your kind attention, large and lovely N that you are: we're in need of a vector version of the current Kontact logo, for purposes of blowing it up indecently in size for use in a poster or two (for Linuxtag).

Akonadi logo contest heats up

As Tom announced a few days ago, the Akonadi team is looking for a logo and an icon for the little system tray application. So far we have three submissions, but us kdepim hackers at KDAB thought we'd give folks an extra incentive by donating a Canon Powershot digital camera, new and unused, to be given to the creator of the work we will chose in the end.

FOSS.in 07 - आकाशवाणी (Akashwani)

FOSS.in 07 continues to be a great conference experience for me. I had no talks on the first day of the main conference, which meant I got to listen to other people's presentations, chat with many interesting people and generally hang out and hack. In the evening we went to a downtown restaurant with a bunch of folks for a traditional south Indian style meal, which was excellent.
