KMameleon

OK... So I have managed to install KDE on qt-copy these days... now going back to development...

I am figuring, that xmame has some really weird and funky options, like -norotate isn't exactly the same as rotation switch disabled, and -nothrottle isn't the same as throttle switch disabled... Weird... Ok... So I have deactivated the -[no]command switches and now it should work better... Specially in the advanced mode...

Annoyances with Kolab and Outlook

Slowly progress is made, we finally got our plugin to load cleanly in Outlook proper this week now that we moved from MS's crappy STL attempt to STLport. There are still some issues with using STL in DLLs but we can login and dont get 5000 assertions from their buggy STL.

qt-bugs doesn't love me

Ugh, another bugfix rejected. This one affects at least KAlarm, JuK, KGPG, KGet and Kopete. Bug was acknowledged; patch acknowledged; won't fix before 3.3 (probably more than a year and no help for KDE 3.2).

kSirc to do ICQ?

Hmm, I'm not sure how twisted this is, but I want to do something other than hack irc for a few days. At work everyone is on ICQ, so I run sim to talk to them. But I've never liked the way IM apps run, what was wrong with IRC?!?

Proper GPG support for Jabber

Finally! With a bit of hacking and borrowing from the new libxmpp code, the Kopete Jabber plugin is now able to properly encrypt messages and can thus talk with Psi and other Jabber clients in a secure way.

Why you should use Umbrello UML Modeller

I'm giving a talk next week at the Linux 2003 conference in Edinburgh about UML Modelling with Umbrello. Since I'm not too sure what to say I'm writing notes here in the hope that I'll be struck by inspiration and maybe some useful comments.

So I turn 19 today

What fun! What glory! I have a birthday today.

So, work is interesting. I get to set up a PII 400 machine, for use as a server. FreeBSD 4.8 is the OS of choice (I just like FreeBSD on my servers, and I don't know why.)

7/24/03 - Eureka!

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). I was having problems getting Kruskal's down from O(n2 log n) to O(n log n), but i figured it out so I'm happy now. Now if I could only find a graph generator. :)
