Hey ya all,

Well it's now Saturday (technically it's Sunday here), 1am and what a day my machine has had today.

Basically i have been busy at Uni this week, our presentation about colour on Thursday went well, Craig done well with a test of the senses, which went down well with our tutor.

Anyway back to Linux,...yeah i have been comiling and getting all of the problems that i have had, sorted out. I got my sound card to work on Friday which means that i can now play midi's, which in turn means that i can look into the possibilties of starting my first KDE project KWindChimes which shall use aRts.

I got koffice working, and also extra things updated like Kdetoys KdeUtills etc. Jono helped me get the Aqua Theme for KDE working, I had overlooked one thing, i didn't apply the widget theme in the theme mgr!!

I have had a mate over this weekend and I refused him accses to Windows, while me and Jono educated him to the joys of Linux and KDE :) he had a document to type up and i managed to use AbiWord for the first time

My auntie who has been over due in her pregnancy popped a baby girl out this week so i shall probably see here this coming weekend :)

Plans for this coming week include Uni work in the day and Linux hacking durring the night. I was thinking about updating my Kernal as i have a few probs with my USB Zip Drive and that seams to be the only problem left to fix. I will also be picking up my QT tutorials and getting to grips with the basics of KDE Development.

A very KDE intensive weekend has been had
See you all later
