Had a nice weekend. We went out looking at houses on Saturday, and I have relaxed and caught up on my kip.

Chris Howells has set up Bugzilla on the KDE Usability Study site. This is cool, and it should give us a means to handle usability based issues. We are just ironing out some of the issues with it.

Aaron has also written a KIconEdit patch to fix some usability issues - I am going to test it and give some feedback on it. I havent had time today but I am going to look at it tomorrow.

I was reading a few pages of Beginning Linux Programming the other day, and I was reading some of the Socket information - interesting stuff; I am thinking of having a go at writing some client/server stuff. This is going to be one of those play with something until I understand it then forget it occasions I suspect. Nontheless...this is one of the greast things about free software - playing with technology you don't understand.

I have been getting interested in the Konference project (H.323 based KDE VoIP application). I subscribed to the mailing list and I am keeping tabs on it. I installed the KDE 2.x Debian packasges and compiled it - a straight link to kde-common yielded no success and the intricies of Autoconf did'nt give me time to make it work. I eventually compiled it after unsetting QTDIR and installing all the right libs and it looks promising - it does'nt do much when you call...but promise is there. I mailed the developers list and offered to do a website for the app - I am also going to take a look at the code.

Had a band practice today - it went well although Jim wasn't there - the website is up now at http://www.seraphidian.co.uk/ - I still have some issues to sort out but the site is mostly there.

OK...it is late and I am going to shower and get some kip...seeya later all.
