Too many tasks before the deadline

This time I am using the blog to ask for some help.

I need someone who is able to convert HTML documentation about form desinger (one really important chapter from user's POV, about 35KB) to docbook for Kexi. Not much time left before the documentation freeze (friday evening, 8th sept).

Deaaronify Service

If you, like me, have trouble with slower reading text lacking capital letters, but still want to be up to date with all that buzz, there are good news: "Deaaronify" service has been started :0)

Just type any url as an argument, e.g.:

http://kexi-project.org/tmp/deaaronify/?http://aseigo.blogspot.com

It's powered by an unoptimized php script.
Have fun!

CHIP, better than ever

Do you remember my complaints about KDE or KDE apps mentioned nearly *zero* times in CHIP?

Now looks like the magazine has been improved in the area. At least the current 08/2006 issue. There's even a "KDE or GNOME, what's better?" article.

SUSE folks cannot be upset too. SUSE 10.1 on the cover is called by CHIP no less than "The world's safest operating system".

In a thread filled with complaints about problems with (sw)suspend in Linux I found a link to CryoPID - A Process Freezer for Linux.

If you know this, forgive me. Let's look at slashing KDE apps startup time. Again. I am referring to topics covered in this thread.

What's (relatively) new?

Is Google Trends a replacement for research?

Definitely not. I don't know whether Steven's article should be read as ironic, but it is filled with false or semi-true conclusions. Among them I found one especially funny:

Russia, however, is the country that has the most interest in Linux. It's followed by India -- out-sourcing anyone? -- and the Czech Republic. [..]

Steven, KDE is a Czech word "where" or so, you know? :)
A few folks even remember this is mentioned in a KDE's Tip of the Day...

Visual Alter Table!

What has implementation of database table schema (design) altering to do with Undo/Redo implementation for Table Designer?

In case of Kexi, everything!

Read on to learn why.

Mostly the data matters!

Some would even say "only the apps and data matter". Why? The next iteration of the desktop itself may be pretty, but it is just...desktop (yeah, more feature-rich than competition).

Kate for Win32 is Near You

Spring suddenly arrived also here in Poland. Not bad pretext to finally replace rather nice CRT with relatively awesome LCD. Too bad that win2k has no subpixel hinting.

In software department, this week I got a message from Ralf Habacker who's persistently polishing kdelibs4/win32:

Yeah, Mediawiki rules

As I agreed with most of these complaints (http://www.blogs.kde.org/node/1952#comment-4773) and people know I am complaining about the current wiki.kde.org engine as often as possible - here are news/issues on the topic:
