MSOOXML: Why oh why?

Some like to make a joke of OpenOffice.org coming with around 8 different string-implementations and comparing that with what we are having in Calligra with QString.

Calligra Sprint 2011 in Berlin

This weekend there will be the Calligra spring 2011 in Berlin in KDAB's office in berlin where I usually work and play kicker and table tennis all of the week. The irony is that I very likely will not make it to the sprint. I was visiting some friends in Koh Tao and I am now caught in a heavy storm in Koh Samui since more then a week now. My fly was canceled and the airport was closed, my visa was running out and cash problems raised up.
