Arrrrrgggg 3

hmm It looks like it will soon be a regular column ;) No it's not about the palm "crappy" api but on SCO ... those stupids A**holes just made me lost a really big contract (and probably a very fun one todo ... well after wrestling with palm anything is fun ... even listening his brother-in-law monologue on philosophy and social politcs .... errr maybe not) Well now I'm pissed off andI don't know if I will have enough money for Nove Hrady (for the trip it's ok) it's after that I'm not sure.

DCOPSignals now work in DCOPPython

Okay so I couldn't sleep last night, so I spent the night playing with dcop python and found that dcop signals where missing. Needless to say I added them.

cvs:[kdebindings/dcoppython/test/signal.py|This] short example script shows off the happy new functions in action.

Python + DCOP = Cheap Public Relations

So i was mucking with dcop some tonight and playing with the new python bindings. The new bindings are much faster and are self contained so you can use them from PyGTK or PyQt. So I was hacking some and came up with a trival app that I was able to drag and drop almost directly from KDCOP.

A little bit more to see

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!).

Ok, after spending about 20 minutes typing, I closed the other tabs I had open, and the page reloaded. :(

Kopete 0.7 released

Woohoo the site is back! Good time to announce Kopete 0.7 is out of the door, even though that's probably old news for most. Except for a few upgrade issues and an ICQ password problem, the majority of things seems to be stable. However, not a very long time has passed yet and I am putting this in relation to the previous releases. :)

Busy, but still thinking of releases

So yes, I'm busy, but still I managed to get some time for the Krecipes development. Things seem to go fine, and I expect a release in 2 weeks may be (cross fingers).

I'm now addressing the biggest issue: MySQL. Krecipes users don't know how to set it up, and things seem to vary between distros and obviously there are also source installations. So this thing may bring me more problems than solutions, but I'll be adding another part to the wizard to set up MySQL automagically.

KNode in Kontact

Sunday, I woke up, there was nothing on tv, I was bored. I sat down and did something that had to be done and no one was really ready to do. KNode in Kontact. KNode definitely wasn't ready for that kind of use. It took me most of the day. About ~5000 lines of code :( A rather huge patch, which hopefully someone will feel like double checking before I'll commit it. I also went to see Tomb Raider 2 with my brother and a friend of mine and got the ".NET Framework Security" book.

Things are coming along nicely

I managed to get a first pure-KJSEmbed application working last night. It's only a basic text editor, but it creates its own KMainWindow and has acess to the action collection. Combined with the signal/JS function code I added recently I think we're almost at the point where KJSEmbed can be used to create real applications rather than just simple wizards etc.

KConfEdit, KMail and OSCAR

I finally committed to CVS the new OSCAR protocol implementation. It uses libfaim from Gaim. Gaim developers have been very responsive so far, they applied some things I've sent them and were patiently answering my questions. I decided to rework buddy handling so things are in a state of flux right now. Also there's no documentation whatsoever, I'll write it once I'm happy with the api.

Try before you buy^H^H^Hcomment

I discovered KDE had the option to rename files by clicking on the icon name (vs selecting them and then pressing F2). I'd like to have this turned on by default, rather than off, as it would address the #1 complaint I've received regarding single click mode. I suggested such on kfm-devel and kde-usability, and will be doing further testing w/RLUs (real live users) shortly...
