Doing KDE on the run

gah! too busy these last two weeks... i need to lead a life of luxury so i can nurse my many non-paying but oh-so-enjoyable interests, like KDE. perhaps i'll ask Santa for one this year ;-)

did up a quick UI for Zack's kspell work, based on a mock up by Henrique Pinto with a bit of a twist. still ruminating on whether or not to add a progress bar. yeah, maybe i will.

discussion on kde-usability is actually pretty high on the signal side of the signal/noise scale the last few days. huzzah for that.

Starting a blog

After reading the announcement on the dot, compiling kblog and creating an account, I thought it would be a good idea to start a blog myself. Let's see if anybody reads it...


What I like about www.kdedevelopers.org is that there is a native client (at least there is the start of a native client).

7/22/2003 - I need more time

Why is it that university professors always pile crap loads of work on at the end of the term? *sigh* So yeah, I got lots of homework and projects, and no time to hack. But i'll stop bitching now. :)

7/22/2003

I'm trying to make a habit out of those entries.
I've spent a little time today working on and closing 12384, which by now had 423 votes. Felt good to close it. Also worked on 4202 a little more. I want to have the html capable editor in libkdepim after OLS. Hopefully everyone is going to like it as the editor itself is a kpart plugin. In the beginning kedit, krichtextpart and ktexteditor based will be there. Hopefully before 3.2 I also get a KoText editor part there so that you can edit emails with it. But that's after I'll port KMail and KNode to it, especially that I need to work on html export in KWord a little more.

Krecipes 0.2: Recipes for geeks

I need more testers for this little beast, guys. Or is it that there're no bugs left? :-) Just to let you know, this version includes two delicious recipes from and for geeks. One by Adriaan de Groot, and another one by me. Even developers cook sometimes...

new KDE3 dev book in the works!

Did you hear that Ralf Nolden is starting work on a new KDE3 development book? Wahoo! It's going to be under the FDL, natch. Following Holger's suggestion that the book be a constantly updated guide to everything KDE, I propose it be titled "The KDEnomicon" :)

Why not merge with JuK?

This seems to come up fairly frequently with people who talk to me about Kiwi and its goals and the seeming redundancy when compared with JuK. At the risk of possibly offending wheels (which is completely not my intention), I do have a few reasons to continue developing Kiwi, and these reasons are all valid to me.

Kopete Jabber Plugin - Do you use it?

Jabber seems to be growing again lately. Yet, Kopete seems to have no real userbase in Jabberland. I always wonder why I don't get any real feedback. There are hardly any bug reports, hardly any wishlist entries. Compared to the other plugins like ICQ or MSN at least, although that might be an unfair comparison.

Would you use the Kopete Jabber plugin? Do you know about Jabber at all? If you are using the Jabber plugin, are you missing any features?

is it Free enough?

We recently had a bit of drama on the kde-edu-devel mailing list. It seems that Debian decided that KStars was not quite Free enough, because some of the images we use are used with permission, and the catalog files are not unambiguously in the public domain. As a result, they were either going to remove KStars altogether, or move it to non-free.
