Learning About Qt
I've spent most of my time in the Qt world teaching. I started of with the Independent Qt Tutorial back in 2002. In 2006, the Qt 4 edition of the tutorial turned into the Foundations of Qt Development and actually got printed.
I saw that Tro^H^H^HQt Software - let's just call them the trolls - have released a bunch of QtSolutions under the LGPL license. Nice! There are quite a few solutions still available, check out the list. When listing a bunch of widget add-ons, I have to mention the wwWidgets as well.
World of Fun
I enjoy a good strategy puzzler now and then - my long time favorite games are Lemmings, Settlers and such. Just the other day, I discovered that World of Goo is available for Linux. I just downloaded and tried out the demo - and everything works right out of the box (I use an old Kubuntu install that has been upgraded too many times). Nice, nice - time to spend $20 on more tracks :-)
Just learned that the window flags Qt::FramelessWindowHint | Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint isn't enough in X11 (seems to work on WinXP). You also need to add the Qt::Tool window flag. Just so that you know.

Standing up!As a very proud father I have to show this to the world - Lisa can get up to standing by her self. My wife just managed to catch this historic moment using her cell phone before Lisa fell over. It looks as if the time of moving everything fragile and expensive into closed cupboards has come :-)
Clearing the Attic
Let me just say this first: yes, I'm a sick individual.
I've been clearing out my room at my parent's attic. This is some of the left overs that I donated to recycling.
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
